Description

Crisp-chewy vegan coconut macaroons that are delicious & easy-to-make. They are also grain-free, oil-free, refined sugar free, and have a keto option.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2/3 cup (175 mL) full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 packed cups (7 ounces/ 200 g) unsweetened shredded coconut flakes, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or blender, process coconut milk, maple syrup, psyllium husk, salt, almond extract, and HALF of the coconut flakes until mostly (but not entirely) smooth.
  3. Scrape the coconut milk mixture into a medium bowl. Add the remaining coconut flakes, stirring until blended.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop or moistened hands, scoop tablespoons of dough into compact mounds. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until deep golden brown and hard to the touch.
  6. Remove from the oven. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Notes

Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days (in a cool room; if it is hot, store in the refrigerator), the refrigerator for 1 week or the freezer for up to months. Note that the cookies will become softer (less crisp) over time.

Make it Keto: Swap the maple syrup for an equal amount of keto-friendly liquid sweetener. This changes the following macros, per cookie: Calories: 99, Carbs: 3.7 g, Sugars: 0.9 g. The remaining macros are the same.

Variation:
Swap the almond extract for 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or citrus zest (e.g., lemon, lime, orange).
