Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

image

On the path to healthy living and clean eating, there’s been a few rough patches. It’s not always easy to retrain taste buds and old habits can be hard to break – especially during stressful and busy times. This recipe is my kind of ‘cheat’. It’s sweet and chocolatey, but also gluten free, vegan and super easy to make. Many thanks to my friend Ashley for sharing this amazingly delicious recipe with me.

3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup cocoa

In a large sauce pan, heat honey and coconut oil over low heat until just combined. Add vanilla and salt. I used coarse sea salt, table salt works too.

Turn off burner. Stir in oats and coconut. I used steel cut porridge oats with added flax seeds. Quick oats work too. Add cocoa and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Using a teaspoon, scoop onto a baking sheet. With your fingers, form into little balls. I needed to wash my hands several times through this process as it gets a bit sticky and messy. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.
