Chocolate Coconut Macaroons - Gluten, Dairy, Egg and Soy Free

Chocolate Coconut Macaroons
Gluten, Dairy, Egg and Soy Free!

This recipe is a combination of 2 great macaroon recipes I have, a gluten free coconut macaroon recipe from The Flying Apron and a RAW chocolate macaroon recipe from my Aunt.  

Preheat oven to 350

In mixing bowl add the following

 6 cups shredded coconut 
(unsweetened if you want it healthier...I used sweeted because that's what I had)
1 cup cocoa powder or raw cacoa powder if you have it
1 cup Maple Syrup (real maple syrup!)
1 cup coconut milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt
2/3 cup gluten free flour (whatever blend you have or just use rice flour)

Combine all ingredients together until combined.  
Take a cookie scoop and pack with coconut mixture and then release onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Option- Press a raw almond into the top of each cookie, or press a couple straight into the cookie
Bake for about 15 minutes and then let cool completely on cookie sheet.
