Coconut Macaroons

My third day straight of posting bright and early in the morning. I am on a roll, baby.

Truth is, I have to take a rest day today in preparation for my race… and I hate it. I hate it with everything inside of me. Today is always bike day and I don’t know what to do with myself now thats it’s sit-on-your-butt day. I’m trying to distract myself by telling you about my woes. It’s not working. I’m sitting across from grapefruit and I just did a double take because at first I thought they were bike wheels. Ok well maybe not but almost. Life is rough, man.

I wonder if I can steal away for a few hours on my bike and my body somehow not notice…. Can you keep this a secret for me? Thanks.

In exchange for you covering for me, I made some Macaroons for you. Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Sugar Free, Paleo, Vegan, and delicious Coconut Macaroons to be exact.

That’s a pretty sweet deal on your end, if I do say so myself. I’d take it if I were you.

Coconut Macaroon Energy Bites

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Sugar Free, Paleo, Vegan, Raw

makes about 14 energy bites

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dates, pitted and soaked for 15-20 minutes so they’re soft
  • 3 Tablespoons almond meal
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

  • Put dates and almond meal in the food processor and pulse a few times to break the dates down.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until everything is well combined.
  • Scoop out by the tablespoon and put them in the fridge for 15 minutes, or eat them right then and there. It’s worth it to wait for the fridge, though.
