Considered to be the world's most delicious nuts, macadamias are small, crispy buttery flavored powerhouses full of good fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Yes, these babies are very high in fats, but their fat profile balances our essential fatty acids to provide a nice mixture of both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. These fats also increase the production of protective high density lipoproteins (HDL cholesterol) while suppressing the unhealthy low density lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol).

Chocolate Macadamia Macaroons [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]


  • 2 cups desiccated coconut (another half cup for rolling)
  • 1 cup raw macadamias
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar (please use more if you prefer them sweeter)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt


  1. Quickly pulse the macadamia nuts in a food processor (careful they turn into butter quickly).
  2. Combine all other ingredients with pulsed nuts.
  3. Form small balls or press into a mold.
  4. Roll or sprinkle these in finely shredded coconut.

please find some recipes without coconut oil. Cardiologist says to stay away from coconut oil. Too much- saturated fats

This recipe is not "raw", because the recipe calls for Coconut nectar.

Here is why...

For a food to be considered "raw", some experts state it can not be heated up past 104°F - 120°F. Coconut nectar or syrup, is produced by slowly heating this sap between 105°F - 250°F (or more depending on the company) for a period of time between 1.5 - 3 hours to thicken it into syrup. This process also causes the sap to deepen in color.

This looks yummy...as do many of the recipes on your site. I would love to be able to print directly from the page so I can take the recipe into the kitchen. Do you think you might consider incorporating some means of doing that when you share recipes with us. Meanwhile, I can figure some work around. This recipe looks irresistible today!
