Simple Vanilla Macaroons
I love me some macaroons. Love, LOVE them!! Hail Mary makes some AMAZING Vanilla Macaroons that I wanted to try to recreate on my own. Just a warning, these are addictive…majorly, majorly addictive!!
- 3.5 cups dry, shredded coconut (1 cup will be used as is, the other 2.5 cups will be made into coconut butter)
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 Tbs honey – more or less as desired
- 1 squirt Vanilla Stevia (I always order my mine through iherb.com, you can use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 off your first order)
- dash of sea salt
First put 2.5 cups shredded coconut into a high speed blender and blend into a paste/butter. I used a VitaMix (a.k.a. best blender on the planet!).
Next, add your coconut butter mixture with all the other ingredients in a large bowl until you’ve created a large sticky “ball”. Be sure to taste as you go to make sure you have the desired sweetness.
Using the palm of your hands, roll the mixture into small balls and place onto a baking sheet. I always use a SilPat to make sure I get a nice crispy outer layer. I got my silpat at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Cook on the middle rack of the oven at 350 degrees for about 5-10mins. Just keep checking to make sure your macaroons don’t get too brown (like I did – apologies for the terrible photograph at the beginning of this post!!) the cooking time will vary based on the size of your macaroons.
These are very easy to make. Excellent with some dark chocolate and tea, or even better, Fall in a Glass, talk about yummmm!! I hope you Enjoy!! These are pretty amazing!!
