Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons


1 cup coconut cream

1 Tablespoon orange juice

1 teaspoon almond extract

¼ cup raw honey

1 ½ cups unsweetened coconut flakes

½ cup almond flour

½ cup dark chocolate

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

2 to 3 Tablespoons orange zest

Preheat your oven to 350, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a saucepan, combine coconut cream, orange juice, almond extract and honey.

Bring to a low simmer and whisk together for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add coconut and almond flour to a mixing bowl.

Pour liquid from the saucepan into the bowl and stir to combine.

Use a tablespoon to scoop batter, then shape each cookie into a mound and place on the baking sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies begin to brown.

Remove cookies from the oven and immediately place baking sheet to the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate, coconut oil and add half the orange zest in a double boiler.

Let chocolate cool for 5 minutes, then dip each cookie halfway into the chocolate.

Place each cookie back on the baking sheet.

Sprinkle the remaining orange zest over the cookies.

Put cookies back in the freezer for 10 minutes to set. Enjoy!
