Gluten Free Chocolate Macaroons
If you are after a quick, easy, no fuss gluten free sweet treat using ingredients you probably have on hand in your pantry, then this recipe is for you. Simply throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, scoop and bake. Lets face it, it's always nice to finish a meal with a sweet treat that contains healthy fats and won't cause a huge insulin spike.
1 ½ cups shredded unsweetened coconut
½ cup almond flour (or quinoa flour)
⅓ cup honey
⅓ cup 100% cocoa powder (I like Guittard)
2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 F (160 C).
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are browned.
Let cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes to firm up before transferring to a plate.
