Sink those lovely teeth into a chocolate dipped coconut lime macaroon by Amy Lyons of Fragrant Vanilla Cake. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, the PERFECT macaroon if we don’t say so ourselves.

Ingredients

 

Macaroons:

3/4 cup raw almond meal*

2 Tbsp organic lime zest

2 Tbsp lime juice

a pinch of sea salt

1/4 cup raw agave nectar (or raw coconut nectar or raw honey)

a few spinach leaves

2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut

 

Chocolate:

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

1/4 cup raw coconut oil

2 Tbsp raw agave nectar

a pinch of sea salt

*I used soaked, skinned and dried almonds to make the meal.

 

 

Instructions

 

To make the macaroons:

1) Place almond meal, lime zest, lime juice, and sea salt in the food processor and process until well combined.

2) Add the agave nectar and spinach and process until the mixture holds together. Add coconut and pulse until the mixture holds together.

3) Form the mixture into 12 balls, and place on a dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for about 12 hours, or until they are dried, but not so much so that they are not a little chewy in the middle.

To make chocolate:

1) whisk all ingredients together until smooth in a bowl and let sit until it thickens a little (about 15-20 min). Lay out a sheet of foil on a sheet pan.

2) Dip each macaroon into the chocolate and place on the foil. Once all dipped, put in the freezer to set. Once chocolate has hardened, enjoy!
