Description

A healthier version of the classic holiday cookie, these coconut macaroons are 21 Day Fix approved!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, plus a bit more if you want to roll them in at the end
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/8 cup honey (the original recipe called for 1/4, but we cut it down…feel free to increase if you want)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond, hazelnut, lemon, orange, whatever you want to try!)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine shredded coconut and coconut flour.
  2. Pulse in salt, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla; Dough will form a ball.
  3. Scoop batter 1 level tablespoon at a time onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. **We used latex gloves and it still took us a bit to get the hang of rolling them. It’s worth the fight – I promise. I felt that shaping it in one hand worked best.
  4. Optional – gently roll cookies in shredded coconut
  5. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes
  6. Cool in the freezer for at least a half hour or so and then enjoy!
