Secret-Ingredient No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Macaroons (gluten, dairy, and sugar free)
These Chocolate Coconut No-Bake Cookies are Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Sugar Free. And delicious. A great easy dessert for Valentine's or anytime.
Combine the oats, dried coconut and salt in a bowl and set aside.
Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat.
While the coconut oil is melting, place the almond milk in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin overtop. Let it sit for a few minutes to let it “bloom”. This will prevent hard gelatin “globs” in the final product. After a few minutes whisk the gelatin into the milk.
Add the milk and gelatin mixture, cashew butter, and cocoa to the saucepan and whisk to combine.
Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and stevia (remember to adjust the stevia to taste).
Add in the oats, coconut and salt mixture and stir to coat.
Drop by spoonfuls (may have to use your hands to squish them) onto parchment paper. OR press them into cookie cutters or molds (I greased mine with coconut oil). Once you have pressed them in you can push the macaroon out of the cookie cutter gently and place them on parchment paper.
Allow them to cool in the fridge or freezer. They will set and hold together after they have cooled.
Eat ‘em up!
