Gingerbread Coconut Macaroons

These grain-free cookie-like macaroons are chewy, spicy, and delicious.

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes

½ cup almond flour

1 heaping Tbsp fresh ginger root, finely minced

3 Tbsp butter or coconut oil

2 Tbsp maple syrup

1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp clove

¼ tsp sea salt

Method

Place all ingredients into a food process and process until a textured paste forms.

Using a spoon and clean hands, scoop heaping tablespoons of batter and shape into balls with your hands. Place on a parchment-lined baking tray.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 10-12 minutes. Makes 16 macaroons.
