Vegan coconut macaroons

Coconut macaroons

Crunchy outside and soft in the middle. Full on coconut flavor – with hints of lime and vanilla. That’s what these lovely macaroons are.  They smell so good fresh from the oven!

I had to make a second batch for the photo’s because the first batch was finished before I knew it. They were that good. Oh, and they’re vegan and refined sugar free too.

For best results – try to find a good quality shredded coconut. I’ve bought some before that was too fine and lacked flavor. In this recipe I used organic shredded coconut that is pretty coarse.

To shape the little domes I used my round measure tablespoon that happens to be perfect for this.

Once the macaroons are baked and cooled off, you can dip them in some melted dark chocolate for a nice finish. Enjoy!
