Tuesday Recipes – Cocoa Coco-Roons

26

25. June 2013 by swissfitchick

These were one of my favorite finds in the U.S.:

cocoballs

And these:

macaroons

I may or may not have shed a tear when I did not find them anymore in the end and couldn’t take some of them home 😦

Thanks to my label addiction – I study every label for a felt hour – I knew what they consist of. So I started the experiment to whip up my own. They did turn out really good, especially with the addition of some RAW COCOA POWDER – some chocolate flavor just always is a winner, am I right?

Homemade Cocoa Coco-Roons

Ingredients:Β 

2 tbsp Almond Butter

2 tbsp Coconut Oil

3 scoops Protein Powder (you can switch this up with almond flour, oat flour or oatbran!!)

3 tsp cocoa powder

Your choice of sweetener: 4 packets of Stevia or 1 tbsp Maple syrup, or 1 tbsp honey, or 4 pitted and mashed medjool dates

Grated Coconut or Cocoa Powder

Preparation:Β 

Put Coconut Oil (not melted!), Sweetener and Almond Butter in a bowl; mix well

Mix Protein Powder (or your choice of flour) and Cocoa Powder

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mash well together. You can also mix it in a blender, I stirred it with a spoon manually.

Mix until it turns into a sticky batter.

Form Macaroons and roll in grated coconut or cocoa powder.

Put in the freezer – they will harden and taste even better!!

They taste as good as dessert and also suit perfectly as a healthy, natural snack.

Enjoy!

    These little babies sound great. I’m not quite sure I’d have the willpower to not eat the whole bowl before rolling them into balls & freezing them πŸ™‚

  2. Danielle says:

    These look delicious Lucie! I love both those brands but could only ever find them in New York. I love Hail Merry macaroons! So delicious

  3. Can we still be friends if I admit that I haven’t ever eaten a macaroon? I blame it on the fact that I’ve never been a fan of shredded coconut… but I really do love all the ingredients you used in these, so I think I might have to come over and steal one [read: I’d really just love to visit you πŸ˜‰ ]

    • Oh yes, please come!! They are waiting for you in the fridge πŸ™‚ and I’ll be happy to make one for you covered with Chocolate Powder instead of shredded coconut.
