Chocolate Covered Strawberry Macaroons

by Susan on May 14, 2010

I had some strawberries, I had some chocolate. They decided they wanted a hook-up. Honestly, I had nothing to do with this. I just watched as the little strawberry macaroons dive-bombed the chocolate. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. They turned out delightful!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Macaroons

  • 2 C Dried Coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 C Almond Flour
  • 1/4 C Coconut Butter, softened
  • 1/4 C Maple Syrup*
  • 1/4 C. Agave
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 C Strawberries, diced

1. Dice Strawberries and set aside.

2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together.

3. Stir in diced strawberries.

4. Dehydrate at 140 for 45 minutes, reduce heat and finish dehydration (3-5 more hours) at 116.

Chocolate

  • 1/2 C Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 C Agave
  • 1/4 C Raw Cacao Butter, melted

1. Whisk all ingredients together.

2. While still warm, dip macaroons.

3. Chill to set.

*Maple syrup while not raw, is used in many raw food recipes.

I think I’ll have to be trying this sometime soon! That is if I find some more affordable almond flour. I wonder if I have anything I can sub in the meantime!

Lisbet: You can make your own. Either dehydrate the leftovers from your almond milk or grind almonds very fine in the food processor.

Well these were absolutely awesome. Thanks for the recipe. Every recipe of yours that I have tried has been excellent and has gone into my recipe file. And your pictures are always so wonderful. If you ever make a recipe book, don’t forget the photos. I refuse to buy recipe books without photos. So important. Thanks again.
