I had some left over almond pulp from making Almond milk the other day, so I used them in these delicious macaroons. (I really need to think of a new word for delicious – I overuse it way too much!)
Originally I named these “Chocoalte Orange Macaroons” but when i balanced them on top of eachother, I discovered they possessed an uncanny similarity to a TV character I grew up with called Zippy! Or am I seeing things? I have been known to overdo it on the superfoods sending me into an ecstatic supercharged euphoria! Maybe it’s time for a nap…or a straight jacket?!
Zippy’s Chocolate Orange Macaroons
- 3 cups desiccated coconut
- ½ cup almond pulp*
- 1 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- ½ cup tahini
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon orange rind
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
*Almond pulp is what is left after making Almond Milk
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix thoroughly. Roll into balls and dehydrate for 6-8 hours at 105◦F or place on a tray in the overn on the lowest setting, leaving door ajar.
I think I ate about 6 of these throughout yesterday…but the great thing is it all the ingredients are good for you with no nasty processed sugar!
