Chocolate Macaroons

I made these delicious chocolate macaroons last week and promised on Facebook to share the recipe soon. So here it is:
1 cup organic shredded coconut
1/4 cup organic melted coconut oil
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons organic maple syrup
1/2 organic vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
First mix the shredded coconut and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Then add all the other ingredients and mix well. Form approximately 10 balls using a tablespoon and place on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Store in the freezer.
These are fantastic because they're gluten free, vegan, and you can play with the recipe. If you're allergic to nuts, omit them. You could also add more nut, or add flax seeds or chia seeds, just whatever you like. They're super good!
Definitely try these! :)
