As you all know, I cannot keep a good thing to myself and these cookies are no exception. These are a culmination of tastes and textures sure to please the pickiest of palates. They are moist while maintaining the crispness expected form a macaroon; but are rich in chocolatey flavor. Most importantly, these are every bit of that naughty indulgence you crave when you want a sweet treat; except these are good for you...and so very divine!
2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil, melted
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup to taste
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 pinch baking soda
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup fresh raspberries, placed in center after baking but while still warm
4 chocolate chips placed onto each cookie prior to baking (not Paleo friendly)
Bake 350 degree oven 20-30 minutes
These cookies are so quick to make and follow with minimal cleanup. Absolutely perfect for a late night snack attack!
Makes between 10-12 cookies ranging between 62-75 calories per cookie; 1 gram fiber and protein; 5 grams of fat*; 2 grams of sugar and 39 grams of sodium
