“What better way to have fun living a healthy lifestyle than with nutrient-dense and power packed treats!? These Raw Matcha Macaroons are made with healthy fats from coconut, a little bit of raw honey and the uber superfood matcha! Matcha is a stone ground green tea and is a fantastic source of amino acids, catechins, vitamins A & C and even aids in blood sugar regulation. You can be sure that these raw macaroons have a balanced amount of fat and blood sugar regulating properties to help your body mediate a blood sugar spike from the natural sugar found in the honey. Enjoy!” – Charlotte
• 2 tablespoons melted extra virgin coconut oil
• 3 tablespoons coconut nectar for the vegans or raw honey
• 2 tablespoons coconut milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon high-quality Mizuba Culinary matcha
• 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1. Add 1.75 cups finely shredded coconut and process in a food processor until a thick paste forms. This will take approximately 2 minutes.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process for another 30 seconds or until combined. Next, add the remaining .75 cups of finely shredded to the coconut and pulse 2-3 for approximately five seconds until well combined.
3. Using a cookie scoop (or your hands) make small balls with the dough. This should yield about 10 macaroons. Sprinkle with flake salt and/or hemp seeds. Refrigerate until firm and then devour!
