Healthy Easter Treat
Baby Chick Macaroons
-1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (see below for a lower-calorie version)
-1 tbsp whatever flour you wish (such as ww pastry or even coconut flour)
-1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp lite canned coconut milk (or regular canned)
-3 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup
-1 packet stevia (or 1 more tbsp agave, and cut back on liquid)
-1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
-tiny bit over 1/16 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a tall dish and microwave 3 minutes. (Or cook on the stovetop until it’s firm enough to scoop out in ball shapes.) Scoop into balls on a cookie tray (I used a melon baller, but a spoon or ice-cream scoop will work.) Cook at 360 F for 14-16 minutes. (Or maybe even cook the balls in the microwave?? But I haven’t tried this.) Let cool before removing from tray. Makes around 12-14 cookies.
For chicks: Once cooled, get creative with whatever ingredients you have on hand. I used pecans, almonds, cacao nibs, and goji berries. No one says you have to make chicks… you can make bunnies!
