These raw coconut macaroons are armed and dangerous.

They’re armed with a taste so compelling, that I dare you to eat only one, and that’s the danger.

I’ve made three batches so far, and I think we’ve eaten over half of each batch straight from the dehydrator, before they were even ready!

Oh yeah, these babies are irresistible.

It all starts innocently enough, with processing a bunch of shredded coconut long enough that it turns into your very own homemade coconut butter.

Harmless enough, and super easy. Blend, scrape, blend, scrape, blend, scrape, and blend some more.

I’ve even had my 3yo on button duty – she loves turning the processor on and off, on and off, on and off.

And it smells heavenly too. Kind of coconutly.

And then you blend your newly created coconut butter with some agave, some vanilla and a pinch of salt.

Chuck in a bunch more of shredded coconut, and mix, mix, mix.

That’s where the hazard begins.

“Oh, I’d better taste the mix to make it’s OK.” Taste. (OMG.)

“I’d better have another taste, just to make sure”. Taste. (So good.)

“One more taste, and then I promise I’ll start making macaroons.”

And on it goes….

Eventually I manage to get some onto the tray, using a quick and dirty “scoop and spoon” trick.

I have this awesome 15ml tablespoon that’s perfectly round, and perfect for macaroons.

But then I go and scrape it out with a spoon, leaving me with lop-sided macaroons.

Say hello to the “dement-aroon”.


Ah, who cares, it’s quick and easy, and I definitely like that.

Besides, they still taste the same.

I’m not so keen on the fact that it takes 1-2 days to dehydrate these raw coconut macaroons to chewy-soft perfection.

Although it does give me ample excuses opportunities to test them out.

“Nope, not ready yet.”

“Nope not ready yet.”

“Nope, still not ready.”

Little wonder that most of them don’t make it to the end.

But the ones that do make it are definitely worth the wait.

An even more irresistible balance of crunchy outsides with soft melty insides.

Enough talking about it.

These photos are making me hungry.

I think it’s time to go and do some more “testing”.
