Raw Macaroons

Raw Macaroons

Completely raw macaroons that are entirely vegan and contain no added sugars…

macar

(Form them into balls, bars, or cookie-cutter shapes, like the Peanut Butter Babies.)

Macaroon Babies

  • 160 grams dates (1 and 1/3 c) (I use Sunmaid because they’re softer)
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup tbsp shredded coconut (I used unsweetened)

Note: A few readers/bloggers have successfully subbed coconut oil for the coconut butter, but I haven’t tried. Blend first two ingredients, using your blending gadget-of-choice (I use the Magic Bullet short cup). Mix in your coconut. Alternatively, you can roll the balls in coconut after forming them (as in the first photo of this post). Form in shapes of your choice. You can use the plastic bag trick. If you find the mixture too crumbly, put the bag in the fridge for a while before forming shapes. Due to the melty nature of coconut butter, store the Macaroon Babies in the fridge or freezer (that is if ya don’t eat them all first!).

On tomorrow’s agenda: Raw, vegan Mounds Bars

#1 reason to make Macaroon Babies: It gives you an excuse to say, in your best Austin Powers voice:
“Macaroony Babies, yeah!”
