Raw Macaroons {with our Vanilla Bean Infused Honey}

This amazing recipe is appropriated from our friend Aubrey Griffin's blog,homegrownandhealthy.com!

I don't know about you, but when I think of summer-time I think of vacation - and instantly my mind pictures a warm white beach, sounds of steel drums playing softly nearby, and the subtle sweet aroma of coconut wafting in from the salty sea. Nowadays, after work I speed home as quick as I can to lounge back in my lime green Adirondack chair, pour myself a tall glass of iced tea, and slowly start to hear those steel drums chiming in my head. While looking at Aubrey's blog, I thought to myself "Wow self! These raw macaroons would make a wonderful addition to your tropical island-getaway fantasy!" And there you have it, these all-natural raw macaroons are perfect as a sweet snack, tropical party favor, or even a healthy dessert!


  • Raw Macaroons
  • 1½ cups finely chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, macadamia, cashews etc..)
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • ¼-1/2 cup Cloister Honey: Vanilla Bean Infused Honey
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir till all ingredients are incorporated.
  3. With an ice cream scoop or a spoon, scoop out about enough to make a 2 inch ball. (This part gets a little messy)
  4. If using a spoon, really work the mixture in your hands. Squeeze and shape in to a ball.
  5. If using an ice cream scoop, mash in the mixture as tightly as possible.
  6. Place the balls on to a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. This prevents the any sticking when they are cooled.
  7. Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for at least 30 min to cool and harden.


Helpful tip! Use the same measuring cup for the coconut oil and honey. By measuring the coconut oil first, when the honey is measured it should slip right on out of the measuring cup.
