Raw Brazil-almond Vanilla and Chocolate Macaroons

These are adorable and absolutely delicious – especially the vanilla  ones.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup brazil nuts (or other nuts if desired)
1 handful almonds (or walnuts)
1 cup shredded coconut
2-3 tablespoons agave syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter (peanut is OK)
3 teaspoons coconut oil
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 heaped teaspoons cocoa (or cacao)
cinnamon
generous pinch salt

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend all ingredients in a food processor except cocoa and cinnamon. Make sure this is sticky and dough-like. If not add more almond or peanut butter. Split in two halves.

For vanilla – using one half of the mixture, place bite-size biscuits onto a tray and sprinkle with cinnamon.

For chocolate – blend the other half of the mixture with cocoa, then place bite-size biscuits on the tray.

Chill in the freezer briefly, then enjoy.
