Chocolate Crunch Hazlenut Macaroons

I found this recipe last week on my blogger friend Kristen's site. I might just have to smack her for posting it because they are so addictive, easy and fabulous!;) Thanks so much for letting me post this Kristen, you are a daily inspiration!

I would wait until next week to post it but I promised a few friends I would put it up. It doesn't matter if you're Raw, vegan or SAD, these are a great treat! Enjoy!

By Kristen Suzanne of

1 cup hazelnuts*

1 cup raw chocolate powder

1 cup dried coconut, shredded & unsweetened

1/2- 3/4 cup raw agave nectar

2/3 cup coconut butter

1/2 cup raw cacao nibs

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt

Using a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, grind the hazelnuts to a fairly medium/fine grind. Transfer to a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Stir all the ingredients together well by hand, or use a mixer with a paddle attachment to make it easier.

Use a tablespoon measurement to spoon out the batter and place on a cookie sheet (I like using a tablespoon size ice cream scoop). Freeze for up to an hour and enjoy.

Yep, they're that easy!

*Kristen's favorite way to make these is with hazelnuts, but if you don't have those on hand, you could try other nuts or seeds.

Yield 35 macaroons(unless I make them;D)
