OOOMMMGGGG! It's chocolatey, coconutty, sweet, bliss...
I just finished the batter for RFRW Chocolate Macaroons, I added 1/2 agave about 1 more cup of coconut to keep the mixture thick and an extra dash of vanilla, it's in the fridge cooling so I can drop it on my teflex easier, omg it is soooo gooood!

It's in the Raw Food Real World cookbook~

I've got to say - I've only made 5 things out of that book so far and they all were RAWSOME!! Seriously. Loved it.
See if your library has it if you want to check it out. Yummmmmm.:)

Please, can you post the recipe? I am dying to try it! (I googled all over the place and couldn't find it.) :confused:

I've been making Carol Alt's chocolate macaroons as fast as I can eat them! They are GREAT! Eating the dough before they are dehydrated makes you feel like you are eating raw (cooked) cookie dough!
Death By Chocolate Macaroons
2 cups dried raw coconut flakes (I use shredded)
1 cup raw chocolate powder
3/4 cup raw agave
1Tbl. vanilla extract
2 Tbl. coconut oil
1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with your hands(messy!)or a spoon. Form the mixture into 1 inch balls and place on Teflex-lined trays. Flatten the cookies slightly with your hand or a fork and dehydrate at 115 degrees (I only go as high as 105) for approximately 20 to 30 hours ( I only leave them in for about 10 hours).
I might throw in some chopped almonds next time I make them.

Carol Alt's recipe looks good too, here is the RFRW recipe:
3 C dried unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 C cocoa powder (I used cacao)
1 C maple syrup
1/3 C coconut butter (I used the creme de coco virgin kind, and melted it in my dehydtrator first)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
In large bowl or standing mixer combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Using a small ice cream scoop (I used a cookie scoop it worked beautifully) your hands or a big tablespoon, spoon rounds of dough onto teflex or parchment paper.
Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 12-24 hrs or until crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside (I did 105 degrees, and I just passed the 24 hr mark)
Hope this helps!

I took these out of the dehydrator and there were a few crumbly pieces that broke off, I found that I loved the crispy clusters better than that whole macaroon, so next time I'm going to spread the mixture over some parchment and dehydrate till crisp, then crumble to get clusters... like a chocolate coconut granola cereal! Perfect for the munchies!

Do you think the recipe would be just as good with only agave. I am not sure maple syrup is raw.
03-13-2008, 09:15 PM
Maple syrup isn't raw, but it's one of those "questionables" that people differ on, lots of people use it, lots don't, but I've heard it's ok in small quantities and as long as it's least refined as possible...
to answer the question yes, agave would work, but I think the dehydration time would need to be increased

Wow, they ARE good but potent!!! My friend and I made them the other evening and while waiting for them to dehydrate overnight we both found out we were up at the same time in the middle of the night just from scraping the bowl! SAD hubby also loved them. :D
