What do you get when you cross raw coconut macaroons with chocolate? Raw chocolate coconut macaroons, of course!
And something that’s even more irresistible than irresistible, if there is such a thing.
I mean, if you’ve ever tried my raw coconut macaroons, then you’d have to wonder how they could possibly get any better.
But then I go and add chocolate to them? Talk about weapons of mass degustation!
Just add a tablespoon or two of raw cacao powder? Go on, a little won’t hurt. You know you want to…
Nobody will notice… you eating the mix by the spoonful! OMG, so good. So good.
I mean, when it tastes this freaking awesome, why bother with shaping and dehydrating? Just eat the mix straight out of the bowl.
OK, I’ll admit it. These are kind of crazy.
But if you can extract yourself from the gorging frenzy for just a moment, you might also realise that these are perfect for taking to a potluck or social gathering.
If you can bear to part with them, that is. (I struggle with that one, I’ll admit. How could I possibly share them with anyone?)
Maybe you’ll just have to make a double batch. Or even a triple.
(After all, I can fit one batch on one dehydrator tray, with room to spare, which means I could probably fit six batches in my five-tray dehydrator. I wonder how much shredded coconut I can fit in my food processor… )
Oh, ahem, you’re still here? Sorry about that.
Well, at least if you take these to a party, you know you’ll have something healthy and delicious to eat, if they last that long.
And they’re completely safe for most common allergies these days – no nuts, no gluten, no dairy, no soy, no eggs.
So they’re also ideal for school lunchboxes.
And with any luck, you’ll have other parents asking you for the recipe, so their kids can share in the fun too.
Which means you get to share the joy of these amazing raw chocolate coconut macaroons, without having to make them all yourself.
And they are definitely worth sharing.
Be warned though, these babies are not low calorie, but at least they’re packed full of healthy raw coconut fats.
And if you’re looking for an even healthier version (is that possible?), you could chuck a couple of tablespoons of raw cacao powder into my raw date coconut macaroon recipe and have some completely wholefood raw chocolate coconut macaroons.
Go on, blow yourself away.
Oh, I love good food. And I love that these are raw, vegan, so easy and so delicious.
Whoever says a raw vegan diet is boring and restrictive is missing out on so much awesome food.
All the more for us, hey?
Life is good. And I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you.
So anyway, here’s my chocolate infused version of Chef Amber Shea’s detox macaroons from her “Practically Raw Desserts” cookbook.
