RECIPE: chocolate macaroons

Sometimes I feel so incredibly lucky to have taste buds. This was one of those times.

Inspired by Raw Food Real World I made a mini version of Sarma's macaroons. Afraid of what damage I could do with the full recipe, I opted for a modest third-size version.

Choco-Coco Macaroons
1 cup shredded, dried coconut (unsweetened)
1/3 cup maple syrup (non raw)
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons coconut butter (I used oil)
a few shakes of sea salt

In a bowl combine all of the ingredients and mix, completely. It took awhile for everything to become wet, but trust that it will (resist the temptation to add more oil!!). Using a small ice cream scooper, scoop out mounds and place on dehydrator sheet. If you are using your hands, place in the fridge for a little bit, first. Otherwise it will stick to your hands and does not form! Dehydrate overnight (6-8 hours) at 104. Less time for a more chewy texture.

Simply delicious. I've been known to eat the entire bowl of batter before ever getting it to the dehydrator ...
