I’m not one to love sweets… I’m more of a chip gal, but when my Mom sent me this recipe for No-Bake Cocoa Macaroons (thanks Mom!) I thought I’d try it out.
Can I just say, YUM!
And only 5 ingredients!
And no bake!!
It’s a perfect snack for busy parents to make for the kids and they won’t even know it’s healthy. Just tell them it’s a chocolate ball ;) It’s also great for busy people who like to enjoy a low calorie treat.
They take less than 5 minutes to make, which is my kind of recipe.
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup tahini
¼ cup pure cocoa
¼ cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Use a wooden spoon or your hand to blend it well.
Drop batter by spoonful onto parchment lined sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour. Makes 16 small balls.
