super green matcha coconut macaroons



the texture of these macaroons is my fav. they are slightly crunchy and soo tasty. you can bake them, dehydrate them, or keep them as is. for a raw vegan option, leave out the bone broth collagen powder and just do the greens powder. add anything else that sounds yum to you!

3 c organic unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 c coconut oil
1/3 c almond meal
3 T organic bone broth collagen protein
3 T raw organic powdered greens mix (mine has oat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, matcha, and a few other super foods including ashwagandha and reishi!)
1 t vanilla bean powder
1/4 t sea salt 
stevia to taste (i did 1 dropper full of my favorite omica organics)

-add coconut and coconut oil to a food processor and blend on high for 1-2 minutes.
-add all other ingredients to the food processor and run until combined well. 
-using a small cookie scoop, make about 30 individual bite sized pieces and set them on a parchment lined baking sheet or dehydrator trays. sprinkle with more dried coconut & dehydrate at 115F for 2 hrs or bake on oven's lowest temp until barely starting to turn golden (watch closely). alternatively you can just set the macaroons in the freezer until firm, but they will have to stay chilled.
-store in an airtight container.
