Raw Lemon Almond Macaroons


  • 4 3/4 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cold pressed, organic coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup raw, light agave
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 lemon, zested, and the juice of 1/2 the lemon


  • Combine coconut oil, agave, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.
  • Add in almond flour, coconut, and almonds. (I like to crush the almonds a little in my hand as I add them, to create smaller pieces.)
  • Zest lemon over the top and squeeze the juice of half the lemon over the mixture. Stir to combine; it will be loose but should hold together.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, place dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate to set for 30 mins. These are best after a few hours when the flavors have had enough time to blend together.

      Maria, you can virtually always substitute real maple syrup, if that has a better effect for you?
