Chocolate Macaroons

Tasty little cookies to keep handy over the holiday period.  I used dairy-free chocolate to dip the macaroons in so anyone who is trying to be dairy-free can enjoy them.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups shredded coconut (unsweetened)
½ cup cacao powder
½ cup honey
½ cup coconut milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white
Pinch of sea salt

METHOD:

In a bowl, combine the coconut, cacao, milk, extract and honey.

Whisk the egg white with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form; about 1 to 2 minutes.

Fold the egg white into the coconut mixture.

Line baking sheets with parchment.

Scoop out tablespoons of the mixture and pack it tightly to form cookies. I used a cookie cutter; dropped a tablespoon of the mixture in and pressed it down with the plunger of my processor then slid the cookie cutter off. It worked perfectly.

Chocolate Macaroons

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

This recipe adapted from Against All Grain but I omitted the peppermint essence as the original was Peppermint Chocolate Macaroons.  The mix made approximately 25 macaroons using a 6cm cookie cutter.
