Serves: Makes about 8 Prep Time: Cooking Time:

Ingredients

  • 110g Smooth wholefood peanut butter
  • 50g Cacao nibs or smashed dark choc
  • 100ml Runny honey (if vegan go for Agave Syrup)
  • 1/2 Tsp Bicarbonate soda
  • 220g Desiccated coconut (organic is best to avoid sulphur dioxide)
  • 25g Spelt flour (white or stone-ground will do)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 80g Melted dark choc to drizzle if desired

Instructions

Preheat oven to a 180C and line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them in well with a spatula. Place about 2 tablespoons of mixture in your hands and make a ball, place on the baking tray and flatten to a disc. NB: I found that I had to rinse my hands off every two or three and leave my hands a little damp which definitely helped to make them stick together rather than sticking to me! Leave a small gap between each macaroon on the tray.

Pop in the oven on a 180 for 8 minutes, until they are browning on the edges. Take out and allow to cool – they firm up as they cool so don’t worry if they seem a little soft.

Melt the remaining choc to drizzle or dip once they are cooled!
