Raw Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Macaroons

I found these on the website Civilized Caveman.  Here is the link:

Fast, easy to make and oh so good! Enjoy!

  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup pecan flour (or almond flour) - i ground my own in my coffee grinder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (i made my own from roasted pumpkin)
  • 1/4 cup raw organic honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter or sunbutter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or almond extract or orange)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  1. Combine your coconut, pecan flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and mix well
  2. Add in your pumpkin, honey, coconut oil, almond butter and vanilla and stir well until all ingredients have been evenly incorporated
  3. Use a medium cookie scoop or tablespoon and scoop rounded balls onto a plate or cookie sheet     
  4. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to solidify
  5. Store in the freezer or refrigerator and serve cold
I got 35 of these using a 1 TBSP scoop. as you can see, i rolled some into balls and used the measuring spoon for the rest. I then rolled mine in coconut.
