These raw coconut macaroons are sweet, tasty and satisfying. They’re made with coconut oil, a healthy fat, and so just one of these cookies is enough to keep that sugar craving at bay. Coconut macaroons are not to be confused with macarons. Unlike the latter, my raw macs are ridiculously easy to make. You mix five ingredients in a bowl – pack them into a tablespoon and slide em right out onto a plate. Put them in the fridge for like 10 minutes and you’ve got some sweet and solid macs. You can make all sorts of variations of this recipe – see my notes below for some ideas.
I made these coconut macaroons over the weekend – because I knew my not so little bro, Rishi, would love them (he’s also a big fan of my chocolate coconut cups). Rishi celebrated a milestone birthday this past weekend – his Quarter Century!! The celebrating lasted the entire weekend – we went out with his friends one night and then celebrated with family the next day. Here’s a picture of us 🙂
It was a really nice weekend – I miss it already. Thankfully I can look at this Family Selfie that my husband took with his awesomely long arms – and remember how much fun we all had. Even Sasha (our dog) had a good time – she threw a fit (see my instagram) because she wanted some of Rishi’s birthday cake but after she had a bite, she was fine.
The five of us finished these macaroons over the weekend. The recipe will give you 8-9 bites of coconutty goodness. Eat these cookies alongside a cup of my masala chai. I know you’re going to love this.
