St Patty's Day Macaroons

YAY for St Patrick's Day. Love all the green hype. Today I'm sharing my version of something green - matcha & spirulina - macaroons!

Next to Kale Chips, coconut macaroons are my favorite raw food treat. I just LOVE them. I make them in all flavors - stay tuned for lavender vanilla, lemon creme and orange crush. Mmmmmmmmmm. 

Today is something new - a flavor I have never made. I just figured I wanted them green but also healthy and flavorful. So I chose spirulina and matcha as my flavors. Both are dark green super foods.

I ate these little gems while simultaneously making Easter crafts and signs for a baby shower I'm throwing for a dear friend on Saturday! {hence the party theme above}

ST PATTY'S MACAROON RECIPE

1 cup raw walnuts or macademia nuts

2 cups shredded coconut

3 Tbls coconut oil {melted}

1/3 + 2 Tbls cup agave and/or maple syrup {I mixed the two}

1 pinch sea salt

1 vanilla bean {scraped} or 1 tsp vanilla extract

1 heaping Tbls matcha or spirulina {or half and half}

In a food processor pulse nuts until chopped very fine. Add sea salt and coconut and blend again until all finely chopped and thoroughly mixed.

Add liquids {agave, vanilla and coconut oil} and mix until completely wet and thoroughly combined. Add green powder and pulse again until entire mixture is green. 

Using an ice cream scooper put cookies onto a mesh dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for 14-16 hours at about 110 degrees F.

ENJOY!
