During the holidays, my grandmother would spend hours baking treats with so much care and love - I did not inherit that trait. I looooove to bake, it's incredibly therapeutic, but I'm more of a quick-n-dirty kinda gal and love to work off of recipes I already have.

 This is based off my original SIMPLE-E DELICIOUS MACAROONS but with chocolate, because everything is better with chocolate.


Chocolate Macaroons



    • 2 cups dates , pits removed (soaked for at least 1 hour)
    • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
    • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
    • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup dark chocolate (optional for dipping)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place dates in food processor and mix until smooth.
  4. Once dates are smooth, add remaining ingredients EXCEPT DARK CHOCOLATE and mix until well blended
  5. Place 1" ball of macaroon batter onto baking sheet, bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Allow them to cool before dipping in melted chocolate.
  7. Makes 2 dozen cookies
