This is a great recipe from a site called Happy Foody.  We’ve altered it a bit to make it our own.  Enjoy!

Raw Chocolate Macaroons

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups dried unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder (you don’t have to use exactly this much, just however rich you want them to be. You can even use 3/4 cups cocoa and be fine.)
1 cup raw honey or raw agave nectar
1/3 cup coconut oil
1-2 tbs. raw peanut butter (if desired)
1 tbs vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS:
Mix together.  Wet your hands so they don’t stick to your hands, and then form into balls.  Put them in the freezer until hardened, at least 30 minutes. MMMM!  Some of us think these taste like frozen Bon Bons!

Peanut Butter & Cinnamon Macaroons:
Everything the same as above, but add raw organic peanut butter and a few sprinkles of cinnamon.  This makes them extra tasty!   Just remember if you use roasted peanut butter, they will no longer be “raw”.

Raw “Blondie” Macaroons:
Everything the same as above, except substitute 1 1/2 cups almond meal for the cocoa powder.
