Imagine a bite-size coconut key lime pie. 30 seconds of island summer bliss in your mouth. And it is absolutely good for you.

Makes 36-40

  • 1 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded coconut, divided
  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 2-3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Reserve 1/2 cup coconut for garnish. Pulse your ingredients in a food processor until the mixture will hold when pressed together. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl during blending and add a little extra lime juice to create a nice moist mixture.
  2. Form into small balls using a mini cookie scoop, then gently roll macaroons in remaining coconut. Chill for about 10 minutes in the fridge before serving. Store in fridge.
