Angie Carl

Tart and fresh macaroons keep your taste buds cool. The perfect healthy dessert to take to a barbeque!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup Lemon Zest coconut butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp raspberry preserves
  • pinch of salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine the coconut butter, shredded coconut, maple syrup and salt in a medium bowl. Add the preserves and fold them into the mixture.
  2. Scoop out by teaspoonfuls and place on a plate. If the mixture is too soft, refrigerate for a few minutes. If it is too hard, warm for a few seconds in the microwave or over simmering water (double boiler).
  3. Refrigerate to set. Can be stored at room temperature for a few days but will last longer if refrigerated.

Nelly's Amazing Ginger Lemon Cremes

Angie Carl

Oh snap! Ginger cookies stand back. These grain-free gems are as delicious as they are gorgeous and they might even help an upset stomach.

 

INGREDIENTS

Cookies

  • 1/2 cup dates firmly packed (about 6 dates)
  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal or finely ground almonds
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp water

Filling

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a food processor, process the dates into a sticky ball. Add the almond meal, vanilla, ginger, salt and water. Process for about 30 seconds until well combined.
  2. Place this mixture between two pieces of parchment or waxed paper and roll with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut mixture into rounds and transfer them to a parchment lined plate. Proceed rolling and cutting until you’ve used up all the cookie mixture.
  3. Freeze cookies for about 30 minutes to firm.
  4. When cookies are ready, soften the coconut butter to a spreading consistency (this can easily be done by warming the jar for 15 – 30 seconds in the microwave). Spread or pipe (#12 tip works well) coconut butter on half of the cookies and then lay another cookie on top of the filling to create a cookie sandwich.
  5. Prepare your taste buds for an amazing treat and enjoy!
