I love this recipe because I love lemon!

My step father cannot eat chocolate, so I am always trying to make a little treat that is chocolate-free for him. These are the perfect little piece of heaven to have with a cup of hot, delicious tea.

Makes: 20 Macaroons

Prep time: 20 minutes


3 1/2 cups dried coconut
1 ½ cups almond flour
1 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil
3 tablespoons poppyseeds
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon extract
½ teaspoon salt


Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Use your hands if you want to make more fun! (Washed hands only, of course.)

Using a small ice-cream scoop, your hands, or a big tablespoon, scoop out balls of macaroon mixture. Place on a dehydrator tray with teflex sheet. Next, you can shape the macaroons a bit more, if you wish. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 12 to 24 hours, or until crisp outside and nice and chewy inside.
