Posted by on August 21, 2014 / 2 Comments

Chocolate coconut macaroons are delicious, bite-sized chocolate treats and use just a handful of healthy, gluten-free, paleo-friendly ingredients.

If you’re in a choco-holic mood, I highly recommend these chocolate coconut macaroon mounds of happiness. Say that five times fast!

Similar to my Meyer lemon coconut macaroons, these bite-sized chocolate coconut macaroons are a great snack. There’s only a handful of ingredients needed to make these macaroons and odds are you likely already have them on hand.

So here’s what you do. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Use a cookie scoop to dollop the chocolate coconut macaroons onto a baking tray and bake them for 20 minutes. After they’ve cooled, you’ll find that they’re slightly crispy on the outside yet soft and delicious on the inside.

And bonus – they travel well! So if you’re feeling like a picnic or maybe want to sneak some paleo munchies into the movies (just saying), give these a try.

Enjoy!
