5 minute Paleo Coconut Macaroons (GF/DF/V/Paleo)

Sometimes you feel like dessert, but you don’t want to go to the trouble of spending an hour in the kitchen making something. Am I right?

paleo coconut macaroons
Simple and elegant,
no one will know they only took 5 min to make!

That’s how I felt when I made a batch of these delicious coconut macaroons. They are so easy, even my kids can make them. They literally take 5 minutes to make and maybe 2 more minutes for the chocolate to harden in the fridge. They store wonderfully and are delicious cold so you can just grab and go when you need a treat. Best of all, they are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and paleo. They are low in sugar, high in nutrients and a simple healthy dessert for the whole family!

One batch makes 9-10 cookies. I used a little 2tbs measuring spoon to make these but you could also use one of those tiny ice cream scoopers or make them whatever size you like. If you use a 1tbs measuring spoon, they will be bite size. I like mine a little bigger but feel free to make them your own!
