Attitude Wellbeing Macaroons!

Updated: Jun 27, 2022

I love cooking rather than baking, but we have friends coming for dinner at the weekend and I wanted to do some homemade biscuits to have as a pudding with coffee. I want them to be healthy and these are #glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree #palmoilfree #additivefree. It’s really hard to do #additivefree


Desiccated coconut was the hardest to find as they usually contain sulphites. I have a couple of wholefood online shops that I buy from. If you are interested, I can share the companies with you.


Here's how to make your own nut butter.


This recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare and cook.


Makes approximately 14 biscuits


Ingredients


· 120g Ground Almonds

· 60g Desiccated Coconut

· 60g Nut Butter

· 2 Tbsp melted Coconut Oil

· 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

· 3 Tbsp Water

· Pinch of Salt


Method


Firstly, pre-heat the oven to 160°C Fan Oven/180°C.


Then, place the coconut oil into an oven-proof bowl and pop into the oven for 3-4 minutes to melt.


Next add the ground almonds, desiccated coconut, cashew butter, melted coconut oil, agave syrup, water and pinch of salt to a mixing bowl. Stir and combine well.


Line a baking tray with baking paper/parchment and using your hands mould the combined macaroon mixture into biscuit shapes using your hands. The mixture shouldn’t be too firm, it needs to be a bit gooey, so that it creates a biscuit shape. My first batch was too firm, what a shame, I will need to make a second batch!


Place your shaped macaroon biscuits onto the lined baking tray and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.


After baking, leave to cool completely.


These could be decorated with a chocolate drizzle, but I didn’t have the ingredients! I might update this recipe if I make them again.
