I love that Rebecca Kane gives us info on how to enjoy this decadently healthy treat without a dehydrator for those of us who aren’t able to get one or don’t want one! Delicious either way, and so fabulous that they are so good without any of the “bad” stuff in usual macaroons. So ~ you get to indulge with both your health and your taste buds. Brilliant!
This recipe is completely delicious! Traditional macaroons are made with egg whites, but these are a raw vegan recipe to be enjoyed by everyone and best of all they are made with ingredients that are good for you.
* 3 cups of desiccated or shredded coconut (I like to use half an half to create more texture)
* 2 cups of almonds
* 1 cup of chopped dried apricots
* 3/4 cup of agave syrup (maple works well too)
* 1/2 cup of almond butter
* 1 Tbs vanilla extract
* 2 tsp lemon juice
* A pinch salt
- Mixing bowl
- Dehydrator – Optional
- Place the almonds in a blender and grind until fine
- Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well
- Shape the mixture into small bite size pieces
- Place in a dehydrator on the mesh screen and dehydrate for 8 hours
Helps to know
For a slightly different taste you can replace the 1/2 cup of almond butter for 1/4 cup of almond butter and 1/4 cup of tahini.
If you don’t have one don’t worry, the dehydrator just makes the macaroons more chewy and firm, they are just as tasty without dehydrating. In fact even if you do have a dehydrator you will do well to have any left at the end of the drying time…
