“I gave my mother two of your macaroons and she went crazy. She makes her own macaroons but says yours are far better!!”– David
Nothing pairs better with coconut macaroons than dark chocolate, finished with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. *chef’s kiss* These treats are gluten free, vegan and made with clean, whole ingredients. They’re so healthy that they can be enjoyed any time of day. At first blush, these macaroons may seem like any other coconut-date macaroon, but they are knock-your-socks-off good! Not only are they incredibly simple to make, but their sweet and salty flavor combined with the rich dark chocolate make them a total crowd-pleaser. I love making them for a bite-sized sweet treat at the end of a dinner party, and I often keep extra on hand to enjoy in the afternoon alongside a hot cup of coffee.
Both are cookies and both are traditionally made with egg whites, sugar, vanilla and salt. However, macarons are typically made with almonds, and alternatively, macaroons are made with coconut. Neither of the varieties are usually vegan, but these macaroons (we’re talking the coconut version here) are different. They are totally vegan and also refined sugar-free.
Heck yes! That’s one of the best things about them – make them in advance and keep them in the fridge for up to 10 days, or in the freezer for months on end. Just simply set out on the counter to thaw/bring to room temperature for at least 1 hour before enjoying.
If you love this recipe, make sure to order my cookbook, The Clean Vegan Cookbook, for a full chapter on desserts. I created these recipes using whole, plant-based ingredients. The idea was to develop crave-worthy desserts that majorly deliver on flavor and sweetness without any of the junk typically found in traditional sweet treats. The Clean Vegan Cookbook is being published internationally by Page Street Publishing with a release date of January 10th, 2023. It can be pre-ordered now at all major retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target, and a complete list of other retailers here.
