Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350F/Gas mark 4.

  2. Add all of the ingredients for the Coconut Macaroons into a food processor, and pulse until all of the ingredients combine together and you achieve a mushy consistency.

  3. Form the macaroons by rolling some of the dough into balls and place them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

  5. When the macaroons have finished baking, remove from the oven and let them cool for approximately 30 minutes.

  7. Dip the macaroons in chocolate and enjoy.

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
