Have you tried any of the Hail Merry products? Desserts made healthy with real ingredients and no artificial sweeteners. I recently tried the Dark Chocolate Bites and went through an entire bag within a couple of days. So, instead of going back to the store and buying another bag, I decided to make some for myself. So these Copycat Hail Merry Chocolate Coconut Macaroons were born.
The bonus to making them at home? I control how much sugar goes in! The original bites list maple syrup at the number one ingredient, which leads me to believe there is more than a tablespoon in there. While I love a good treat, I don’t think that much added sugar is necessary in these. But if you have a big sweet tooth, feel free to increase the amount of honey in your macaroons.
If you’re feeling really fancy, I’m thinking these macaroons would be really tasty on top of a smoothie bowl. Just a little added crunch. But they’re also delicious right out of the freezer. Basically if you like coconut and chocolate, ((if you don’t you probably wouldn’t be looking at this recipe)), then you’re going to love these macaroons.
I’m in Colorado right now, so if I’ve been quieter on social media that’s why! I’ve also been contemplating switching up the blog post schedule. Do you like the twice a week routine we have going right now? Is there anything you’d like me to switch up? Maybe more workouts? Shoot me an e-mail with your requests or send me a message on Instagram.
Alright, here we go. Chocolate Coconut Macaroons made with 5 ingredients! Get ready for some really happy tastebuds.
5 ingredient, paleo, gluten free dessert to curb your sugar cravings without a ton of added sugar.
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Add coconut flakes to food processor and blend for 3 minutes, or as long as it takes for them to start to clump together.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend together.
Roll into small balls and place in the freezer for 1 hour. The oil will have released from the coconut flakes so they might seem more liquidy than expected. Do your best to roll them together, but flatter macaroons taste just as good!
