raw macaroon recipe

19 Dec

These dont taste like traditional baked macaroons but are super yummy and awesome to have on hand. dry ingredients are somewhat approximate as you can adjust to taste and consistency, everything just needs to stick together in a nice ball.
Raw Macaroon Energy Balls
Ingredients
1/2 cup pitted medjool dates (not baking dates)
2 Tbs raw agave nectar
1/2 cup ground raw almonds
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1-2 Tbs roughly ground raw cacao nibs (optional)
Directions
ground raw almonds first in blender or food processor and set aside in a large bowl with the coconut. blend raw agave and dates until they form a sticky paste, you might have to stop and scrape towards the blade a few times to get all the date pieces. when done, transfer the paste to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix (we found using your hands is efficient in working everything together since it is sticky) this is also when you can add the roughly ground cacao if choosing to, it gives it a subtle chocolatey-espresso flavour. roll into balls once mixed, if the dough is not holding together well, you can add more agave sparingly until able to form- the same applies if too gooey, just add more ground almonds or coconut. eat! we like to make them a little smaller, stick in the freezer for a harder consistency and pull out to munch as a sweet, energizing snack. mmmmm!
