No-Bake Cocoa Macaroons {recipe}

no bake cocoa macaroons

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.

Ingredients

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.
