|photo by recipe author|
Servings: 1 1/2 dozen
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups almonds
- 3 cups shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, softened
- 1/2-3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- dash sea salt
Chocolate flavored option: 1/4 cup cocoa powder (add at least 2 more tablespoons maple syrup if adding cocoa to the recipe.)
Holiday flavored option: 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a food processor blend almonds and coconut into a fine meal. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until it forms a sticky dough ball.
Using a small ice-cream scoop, drop out small golf-ball size macaroons on a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate at a low temperature (105) for 24 hours, then refrigerate.
