    Looks great. I love that you used a whole food sweetener and coconut butter.

    I heart coconut and I heart butter. Going on my baking list for next weekend when my bossom buddy is visiting from afar :)

    These are beautiful! I make raw chocolate macaroons all the time…it’s one of those recipes that the whole family just loves so we’re always making them!

    Thanks for sharing this, I just tried these with unhulled tahini instead of the coconut butter and they’re really tasty.

    OH MY, those look wonderful! Love the PB topping.

    I have this book too and this is one of my favorite recipes. I love the addition of the PB on top. Yumm!

    Cool recipe, but I’m disappointed that a Canadian would know so little about maple syrup production. The sap collected from the tree needs to be boiled at high heat for hours-days in order to create maple syrup. Hardly raw. Dates are certainly not Canadian, but a good raw alternative sweetener that would match fantastically with coconuts.

    Hi, can I use date paste instead of maple syrup? Also, what is the texture of these macaroons? Crispy? Soft? Cakey?

    Hi Tiffany — I think date paste would be yummy too. I usually eat them frozen so they’re firm and chewy. :)
