Dash of sea salt
1/4 cup honey (you can use more or less)

Zest and juice of one lemon

Cream coconut oil and honey. I used an electric beater. Add honey.

I scraped out lemon and lime to add pulp.

Enjoy!

My partners favourite cookies, done raw and nourishing (No-Bake Chocolate Macaroons).

These chocolate macaroons are amazing, easy to make and super nourishing. The possibilities of flavours for them are endless. As long as you have enough coconut oil to make them harden you can add anything! Try them flavored with raspberry, cherry, huckleberry?

Nourishing chocolate macaroons:

Whisk together until no lumps:

1 cup coconut flakes – (or ground nuts)
1/2 cup other solids – I used hemp, sprouted flax and chia
1/4 cup cocoa
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of sea salt
1 tsp vanilla powder (optional)

Cream (or beat together, depending on room temperature of coconut oil):

1/4 cup butter (from grass fed cow is best)
1/2 cup Virgin Coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract

Mix all ingredients together. Drop onto cookie sheet, making cookies as big or small as your heart desires. Refrigerate and eat when hard, unless you can’t wait. They are that good.

Mix liquid into dry ingredients, and smile.

Drop Tablespoons of batter onto greased cookie sheet (could use parchment paper too) Space them well, as they expand quite a bit.

Bake for 7-12 minutes at 350 F, until edges are browned lightly.

*note* the second and third batches turned out thicker. I think it’s because the batter sat for longer.
