- 1 cup Agave Nectar
- 1 1/2 cups Raw Almonds
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 3 cups Shredded unsweetened Coconut
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or one vanilla bean, pods extracted
- Pulse the almonds in a food processor until broken down and only some medium size pieces remain. Transfer this mixture to a large bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon or strong rubber spatula. Get in there with your hands and mash it all together.–This is actually AMAZING for your hands, they will feel super soft, like you just had a manicure, if you get them in there and mix using them. Coconut oil is wonderful for the skin too. So go for it!
- Form large golf ball sized macaroons with a tablespoon and your hands, transfer macaroons to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour prior to serving. You may also wrap individual macaroons in an airtight container and freeze – simply thaw out before serving.
