  • 1 1/2 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup almond flour finely ground
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
  • Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes, turning the baking sheet halfway through. The bottom of each macaroon will start to brown when finished.
  • Cool macaroons on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes before transferring to a plate (otherwise, they will break apart).
