THE SWIISH KITCHEN: Coco Macaroons


Sorry guys I know it has been a while since the last SWIISH Kitchen post, but to make up for it I have been cooking up a storm and have lots of  delicious recipes to share with you all which I'll be posting soon.

I came across a similar version of these Cacao Coconut Macaroons in a magazine but didn't have all the ingredients so I changed it slightly and made my version instead. These macaroons are literally so good for you! They are sugar free (I Quit Sugar readers delight!), full of superfoods and are a filling, healthy and seriously yum treat. Plus, as a bonus they are way too easy to make. 


Cacao and Coconut Macaroons
What you'll need: 
  • 1/4 cup chopped unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats 
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs 
  • 1/4 cup rice malt syrup (or you can use agave nectar)
  • Zest of 1 orange
 

What to do: 
  1. Preheat oven to 160˚C 
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until they reach desired consistency
  3. Roll into 12 one-inch balls
  4. Place onto tray lined with baking paper
  5. Cook until golden brown - about 10-12 minutes
  6. Let cool and then chow down! 

*swiish tip: Try drizzling a little melted dark chocolate over the top of the macaroons to make them even more decadent!
