Ingredients:

  1. 1 × For the Macaroon Bites:
  2. 1 cup raw almonds
  3. 3 cups raw unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  4. 10 large dates, pitted
  5. 1 tablespoon raw coconut nectar (or raw honey)
  6. 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. 1 × Pinch of unrefined sea salt
  9. 1 × For the Blueberry Sauce:
  10. 1½ cups fresh blueberries
  11. ¼ cup raw coconut nectar (or raw honey)
  12. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

You may also need:

Blender, Bowl, Food Processor, Kitchen Knife, Refrigerator, Spatula, Spoon

Step 1:

Add the almonds, half of the shredded coconut, and dates to a food processor. Process until the almonds and coconut begin releasing their natural oils, which will take about 3-5 minutes. The mixture will be sticky and uniform.


Step 2:

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the remaining shredded coconut, coconut nectar, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Mix until all the ingredients are evenly distributed. I used my hands for this step, but a spatula would be OK too.


Step 3:

Take about a tablespoon of mixture and roll into a ball. Use your thumb to make a small indent on the top of each macaroon. This will serve as a teeny tiny pool for your blueberry sauce. Place each macaroon into a mini cupcake liner.


Step 4:

In a blender, blend the blueberries, lemon juice, and coconut nectar on high until smooth.


Step 5:

Spoon about a teaspoon of blueberry sauce onto each macaroon and garnish with a fresh blueberry.


Step 6:

Chill these little cuties in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!
