macaroon copyThis is my first Paleo treat!  Not to mention it’s raw and vegan too.  Who am I?
I saw this recipe on Style Activist and I immediately went out to buy the ingredients.  It’s super easy, no bake, delicious, and healthy.  What more could you want?

Raw Salted Caramel Macaroons
From Style Activist
INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup medjool dates, soaked for 30 minutes and pitted
1 generous cup shredded unsweetened coconut
6 Tbsp. almond meal (the real stuff with specks and skin – can be found at Trader Joes)
2 Tbsp. grade B maple syrup
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. sea salt
DIRECTIONS:

  1. Soak dates in water for 30 minutes, then remove the pits.
  2. Put the dates, shredded coconut, almond meal, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract in the food processor.  Pulse several times until it all combines.
  3. Then add 1/2 tsp. salt and pulse a few more times until a dough forms.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop 1 Tbsp. portions of the dough and roll into a ball with your hands.
  5. Make sure to work quickly as the mixture is soft and will start to melt.
  6. Set in the fridge to rest for 15-20 minutes, or overnight, and then eat up!
