Thinking of a quick, easy, and absolutely delicious dessert that is gluten free and vegan is always a challenge. Sure if you have time to prepare, a cake or cheesecake or pie is always nice, but there isn’t always the time needed to do so. Coconut macaroons are super good and amazingly easy to prepare. With the choice of vanilla or chocolate, you will please everybody’s taste cravings too.
3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp cacao nibs
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
- In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and mix until uniform.
- Using a small ice-cream scoop, measure equally sized portions of the mixture and arrange on a dehydrator tray or a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Dehydrate at 108 F for 24 hours or bake on a parchment lined baking sheet at 200 F for 20-30 minutes, until the macaroons are firm and dry on the outside.
The vanilla macaroons so good for a little something sweet after dinner or for a snack with your coffee or tea.
Chocolate Macaroons are made with all the same ingredients with the addition of a 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. And of course the chocolate macaroons taste the best with a cup of coffee. I love that chocolate and coffee combination together.
These are a quick way to satisfy your chocolate or vanilla cravings. Made gluten free and vegan too!
