4 Ingredient Macaroons – Dipped in Chocolate

Little chocolate capped coconut mountains of deliciousness

My amazing plant-based friend Stella from ‘The Edge‘ passed this recipe along to me many months ago and I had yet to try it so I knew this was the perfect opportunity. It was a simply 5 ingredient recipe, right up my alley!

I meant to alter it slightly because what I really wanted was chocolate dipped macaroons, but I somehow forgot and ended up making full out cocoa macaroons. Which were awesome because they looked like little poo mounds and I don’t know about you but, I think that’s hilarious.

So here is my little chocolate poo mound recipe adapted from Miss. Stella.

1 Cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)

3 Tbsp Coconut Oil

3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

2 Tbsp Maple Syrup (you can also use agave)

1 pinch of himalayan salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Place ALL ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined. Scoop little mounds with a spoon or mini ice cream scoop/melon baller and place on a tray. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes and enjoy!!


Because I still had chocolate dipped on my mind, I went to work creating them the following day. (These ones I didn’t have to share as much of hehe)

The only alteration to the above recipe to make these is

I did not use cocoa powder.

I used 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chunks (from Enjoy Life) & 2 tbsp almond milk

I melted the chocolate down in a double boiler while slowly adding the almond milk.

After letting the macaroons cool in the fridge, I scooped melted chocolate on top and put them back into the fridge to harden.
These were by far my most favourite yet.

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Oh you know how I love Chia Seeds! And now chia seeds made into a chocolate pudding, life is complete!
I could have made this recipe in a bowl and added some pretty fruit on top for eye-pleasing purposes but the truth is, this is how I made it and this is how it looks but trust me, it’s delicious!

This pudding is so simple to make yet packs a huge nutritional punch!

Did you know?

A  1/4 Cup serving of chia seeds contains:

  • Fiber: 22 grams.
