Raw Recipe of the Week #2: Chocolate Crunch Hazelnut 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!

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)
