Today’s recipe is an absolute classic: coconut macaroons. You either love them or hate them. I LOVE them! That’s why I definitely needed to create a delicious, gluten free, sugar free, vegan version, so I don’t have to live without them. And I’m very satisfied with the results that came out of my kitchen lab :-)

This is how you get 1-2 baking trays of delicious coconut macaroons:

for the homemade marzipan:

  • 100g blanched almonds or apricot kernels
  • 3 tsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp almond oil/apricot kernel oil

-> If you don’t want that to make it yourself, just take 100g marzipan and begin with step 2 of the preparation

other ingredients:

  • 200 g desiccated coconut
  • 4-5 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tsp coconut butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 pinch vanilla

preparation:

  1. First blend the blanched, peeled almonds / apricot kernels until a fine flour forms, then add agave syrup and almond oil / apricot kernel oil to produce some kind of „marzipan“.
  2. In the next step, mix the marzipan with the remaining ingredients and knead well with your hands.
  3. Maybe sweeten again (to taste).
  4. Roll small balls (walnut size), place them on lined baking trays and bake for 15 minutes at 170°C top / bottom heat.
  5. Remove from the oven, let it cool and glaze with dark chocolate if you want to. But they also taste really great without!
