Healthy Coconut Macaroons

Healthy Coconut Macaroons

These health coconut macaroons are loaded with coconut flavor and sweetened only with pure maple syrup. They’re perfect for when you’re craving something sweet, but want to stick with your healthy eating goals! Paleo-friendly, gluten-free and vegan.

I figured with all the salads I’ve been posting for the Salad Every Day Challenge we needed a little dessert.

Luckily these detox macaroons are healthy, detox approved and won’t undo any of the progress you’ve made. I know summer is just around the corner and we all want to look good in our suits. 😉

The best part? You only need SIX ingredients… minus the chocolate chips (which are optional). One important ingredient tip to note! You have to use unsweetened fine or desiccated shredded coconut. This is super important because if you use the longer shreds, the macaroons won’t hold together an they’ll spread across the pan. I’ve found a couple brands that make fine shredded coconut that works perfectly including Let’s Do Organic (they sell it at most grocery stores, on Amazon and at Target) or the Bob’s Red Mill fine shredded coconut.

If you like coconut, you’re in luck because these coconut macaroons are loaded with coconut flavor. Once baked they’re crispy on the outside with a tender and moist center. For this version I melted chocolate chips for dipping and drizzling, but the chocolate is totally optional. They’re 100% delicious without the chocolate as well.
