I was looking for a sweet little treat a few days back and came across this delicious recipe that I had received during yoga teacher's training. Chocolate Ginger Macaroons! Yes, they are surely the cat's meow. I didn't even add as much maple syrup as the recipe called for and they were still super sweet. Play around with it. Tweak it, double it, maybe quadruple it. I added some yummy sliced almonds towards the end of the mixing process. So good. Get your macaroon on!
Chocolate Ginger Macaroons by Matthew Kenney, Everyday Raw
1 3/4 cup dried coconut
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp coconut oil, softened to liquid
1 Tbsp ground ginger
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch sea salt
Mix together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix thoroughly (I placed everything in my food processor and let it rip).Place small scoops on a cookie tray and stick in freezer until set. Remove and store in fridge.
