Chocolate and Blonde Macaroons ~ Raw Vegan Recipe

 24 pieces ~ $.58 each




ingredients
  • 1 cup almonds ($2.00)
  • 1 cups brazil nuts ($2.32)
  • 20 dates ($8.00)
  • 1 cup finely shredded coconut ($1.20)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder ($.30)
  • 1 tsp vanilla ($.20)

I have yet to come up with or run across a raw food recipe that's not fast and easy. These are no exception.

In a food processor with an S blade, process all ingredients, except the cocoa powder, until finely chopped and it all starts to clump together. This takes a minute or two.

Using a plastic rounded tablespoon or melon scooper, scoop out and press to make a half sphere. Use half the mixture to make regular coconut macaroons. Add the cocoa or cacao powder to the remaining mixture and process until well incorporated and then shape with the tablespoon or scooper.

  6. Yummy! What a delicious looking recipe. Do they taste good straight out of the food processor or would it be better to chill or dehydrate them?
