Chocolate Macaroons

Wow, my first attempt in making some macaroons and holy molly! These are so good! They also freeze well, so you can make a batch up then hide them away for your guests or for those treat days. 


3 cups shredded coconut 1/2 cup honey 1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder 1/2 cup coconut milk 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract I used Heilala Vanilla 1 egg white Pinch of seasalt

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 160 C/ 320 F.

In a bowl combine coconut, honey, cacao, coconut milk, vanilla. Stir through well.

Then in another bowl, place egg white and using a whisk, whisk it up until stiff peaks appear. Of course if you have a electric beater this will save you 5 minutes. I don’t, it took a good 4-5 minutes with some solid arm whisking. Good exercise!

Add the egg whites to the mix. Fold through gently.

Using a spoon, divide mixture balls out onto lined baking tray and then press down gently. Make sure you compact each ball as you do this to ensure it is well stuck together.

Place in oven for 15 minutes, then turn the tray and cook for another 10-15. Checking that they aren’t burning.

Remove and cool on oven rack before eating.
