No Bake Chocolate Macaroons

The desire for change is strong, this need to explore and grow roots somewhere that will make the next stage of our lives fall into place. Eric and I are searching and questioning where that should be. Maybe it’s the process of searching that makes life fulfilling; the constant quest to grow, explore, and see more of the world. To make more of an impact and step outside of our comfort zone. Or maybe it’s the opposite – feeling content wherever you are and loving it anyway.

Moving is by no means a foreign concept to me. Growing up, my family moved around a lot due to my dad’s ever changing jobs and I often wonder if that’s why I have a personality that loves to be in constant motion. The first 4 years of my life were spent in Riverview, New Brunswick living and breathing everything that snow forts and a snowsuit could offer.

From New Brunswick, we ventured to Florida (Oldsmar and Palm Harbor) to North Carolina (Charlotte) to Georgia (Woodstock) to Ontario (Cambridge) back to New Brunswick (Riverview) and finally back to Ontario (Milton, Guelph, Toronto, Milton, Oakville). Each move brought about a lot of anxiety, but it also promised adventure, new experiences, and new friends. In my case, it also resulted in a strange mixture of accents, or at least that’s what my friends told me. The Maritimer with the southern accent! She talks funny!

When we sold our house and moved last spring, we decided to rent for the time being because we had no idea where we wanted to buy. Well, we still have no solid idea. It’s probably safe to stick around nearby, but something seems to be nudging us to explore other parts of Canada and beyond. Do we take the leap and try something new or do we stick with what feels safe and familiar? Whether we end up making a big move is yet to be seen, but we’re keeping our eyes open, evaluating options, and listening to our hearts. In the meantime, we’re trying to appreciate life right now as directionless and unsettled as it may seem at times. Really, what else can you do?

I found myself with a macaroon craving this weekend, but the thought of turning on the oven just didn’t appeal to me after a marathon cupboard clean-out session earlier that day. Maybe it’s because spring is just a couple days away (can you believe it?), but I’ve been looking to get outside more and enjoy simpler foods. Well when the sun is shining, that is.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit tired of winter produce. It’s a bit like how I feel about pumpkin at the end of November. I don’t want to even look at it. So I couldn’t bring myself to peel the darn butternut squash that’s been sitting on the counter for way too long. Maybe in a few days, I tell the squash. For now, chocolate seems like a good alternative to peeling squash as I eagerly await spring produce. Even better if I can throw it into the freezer and head outside for a brisk walk.

No Bake Chocolate Macaroons

Vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, grain-free

Email, text, or print this recipe

Yield: 12 macaroons

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, finely mashed
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)*
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • small pinch of fine grain sea salt, to taste

 

1. In a medium mixing bowl, mash the banana until most of the clumps are gone. Stir in the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.

2. Sift in the cocoa powder and stir until combined. Now stir in the coconut, optional chia seeds, and fine grain sea salt to taste.

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick mat. Using a spoon or retractable ice cream scooper, scoop rounds onto the sheet. Place sheet in the freezer for around 20 minutes, or until macaroons are firm. Store in the freezer until ready to enjoy. They will soften at room temperature.

Note: 1/4 cup pure maple syrup results in a lightly sweet macaroon. Feel free to adjust the sweetener to your own taste buds, especially because some cocoa powders may be stronger than others.

I believe we were both on our third macaroon when this picture was taken. Thankfully it’s blurred or you would’ve witnessed chocolate spread all over my mouth and face. That’s the sign of a good dessert!

I am a big fan of “leap and the net will appear” rather than staying “safe and secure” – every time I’ve taken a leap of faith, it’s paid off- or at the very least, I’ve learned something valuable.
My husband always reminds me that we can change our minds at any time- if we don’t like where we’re living, we can pick up and move easily.
Best of luck, Angela!!

Could you substitute agave nectar for the syrup? Would you use less or more then? I ask only b/c I have a ton of agave nectar and no maple syrup in the house.. Thanks!

Reply

20 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 18, 2013

Yes I think that would work just fine! Agave is a bit sweeter than maple syrup spoon for spoon, so I’d probably think 3T would work fine. Add it to taste and you can’t go wrong.

I had just been thinking about macaroons! All of the recipes I’ve seen use sweetened coconut, but I prefer to add my own sugar so I’m excited to try this recipe out. I also like that it’s a small batch because my boyfriend doesn’t like coconut so I’ll be on my own. Are you considering a move to the US? Washington DC is super fun…. :)

Yum! Chocolate no-bake cookies were my favorite at the dining hall in college, though I’ve never made them myself. And coconut only makes things better!

These remind me of “Fiddle Diddles” from my cookbook as a kid (although both oats and nuts were in that recipe!) Can’t wait to try this version out.

That being said, have you ever considered the West Coast? Vancouver is great 4 months out of the year. ;)

Reply

45 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 18, 2013

ha- fiddle diddles…that is a much more creative name than mine. I think they can also be called haystacks?
We’ve considered the West coast and love it, so it’s an option. Just not sure if we’d be able to afford it the way the housing market is these days.

52 Christa @ Edible Balance March 18, 2013

Oh Angela, I can certainly relate to the desire to explore and step out of comfort zones. My husband and I have had the very same conversations (sometimes out of longing for a warmer climate than what we have in Calgary, but now it’s getting more serious).

The wonderful thing for us about not being parents is that it’s easier to pick up and give it try, take that leap of faith and just go for it. All of our family is here, but I’m so used to moving around too (although mostly within the City, does that count? haha), I’m ready to be uprooted a bit and be challenged! We’ll be exploring a bit on our next vacation to see if we’d like to move, I’m pretty excited about the thought!

Honestly, no matter what you and Eric choose to do, your passion will follow you wherever go and you’ll be that adventure together… what could be better than that?!

Yes there is banana flavor in them.

I have a lifelong aversion to banana’s but thought i’d give the recipe a try anyway. Even at the point of making the macaroons I tasted the mashed banana and literally shuddered at the taste. However! The banana flavour was for me well disguised enough to enjoy the macaroons to their fullest :)

Yum – can not wait to whip some up. Question, I don’t have coconut oil and not sure Ill get to store today. Can you make without or what is a good substitute?

Thanks!

Reply

63 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 18, 2013

Hi Jill, That’s a tough one since coconut oil is responsible for hardening them up when chilled. You might be able to get away with using peanut or almond butter for binding reasons, but I don’t think it would firm up as much. Also, cocoa butter should work too! goodluck

Reply

64 Angela Liebenberg August 10, 2013

I made these with peanut butter instead of coconut oil (trying to minimize saturated fat) and they turned out amazing! Not sure if they were softer than they would be with coconut oil, but who could complain? They are delicious.

My husband and I made the big leap a few years ago from Ottawa to Vancouver Island. We left with a few suitcases and our cats and have never looked back. I cried so much on the ferry over to the island and was so happy/excited to finally be somewhere that felt like home. The ocean, the outdoors (little to no mosquitos, no black flies, no deer flies and little to no bugs make for wonderful camping and adventuring all year), the mild winters, the amazingly beautiful summers and the access to fresh produce year-round, plus all of the awesome vegan foods are some of the many perks of living here. The laid back culture is a major plus too. The first year was tough, but so worth it – in between bouts of crying and stress, I was hiking in the woods or swimming in the ocean and feeling my spirit soar! Whatever you and Eric decide, I can’t vouch enough for following that inner feeling/intuition of movement because it’s just so worth it!

At least for now we are since I’m in school til at least next spring, hopefully for another year after that (Masters!). But we did do some moving, when we lived in Australia for 4.5 months and then in Kelowna, BC for almost 10 months! Great times. And always great when friends and family visit :)

And about moving around a bunch, I’ve moved 10 times in the past 10 years. Every single of the first 9 moves were all in Southwestern Ontario… the 10th move being to Southern California. It’s exciting but stressful – it’s hard to tell where the wind will take you =)

Cambridge, Ontario?! Heck, we probably were neighbors, since I lived there until about seven years ago. As for moving, we’re heading for PEI, to a 40 acre farm. Bought it three years ago and have been renting it. It’s time to sell here and go! Nope, don’t know anybody there but it’s what the budget allowed and the dogs will LOVE it!!

Yummy cookies – now I know what to do with that one lone and over ripe banana sitting so forlorn on the kitchen counter. (Chocolate is good for night shifts)

Hi Claire, The banana sweetens lightly and also adds a bit of volume to the batter, but I would expect they’d still turn out if you left out the banana.

Why stay in Canada?? If your thinking of moving you could leave the country. Spain is really cheap, ;) If you have got the itch get rid of your junk and move somewhere you wouldnt expect (PEI maybe?) Im Canadian and after living in Saudi Arabia with my family for a few years I moved to London (UK) for a couple years, did a stint in Germany and found my home in Tuscany Italy. Sadly Italy is in bad shape right now and because I didnt want to live under a communist regime I picked up and moved to cheap cheap Spain. Three Bedroom house, Two Bathrooms, Swimming pool, huge yard, more sun then you can handle and a view of the mediterranean. All that and more for less rent then I paid for a tiny one bedroom flat in Florence Italy. I say if you have the itch stop thinking about it cause you will always find a reason not to scratch it. Grab life by the horns and take a risk, home will always be there when you need it. Or! If you want a holiday we have a guest bedroom and bath you can use if you want a stop in Spain. My husband and I are always hosting people we dont really know cause we love to host guest (hence the extra bedroom and bath!). I have gotten so much from your site (Im not vegan or even vegitarian but I love your recipes non the less) I would be delighted to return the favor! What ever you two decide good luck!!!

As someone who also moved around a lot in her life (Ontario, small town Saskatchewan, back to Ontario, back to Saskatchewan, currently Toronto), I understand your craving for constant movement. This is the longest we’re stayed in one living space and,I find myself drawn to either traveling or moving somewhere (I blame the warmer weather). Right now I would settle to move closer to work, since my current commute is exhausting! :)

PS: Your macaroons look delicious! I never thought to use an ice cream scoop.

Moving is stressful while you are in the process of it but usually provides great experiences and memories. My husband, I and our 2 little boys took the leap 1.5 years ago to leave Toronto and move to Australia. It has been an incredible experience and sadly it is time to go back soon. Initially we were looking to move to the Vancouver area when an Australia opportunity came up. Being so far away from family though made us realize that we belong back in Ontario (not Vancouver). We will be looking to live in the Kitchener/Waterloo/Guelph/Fergus area once we get back (we need to figure out what we like best!)

Hi Angela,

These sound amazing! I was just wondering if you could substitute cacao for the cocoa powder and if so, what do you think the measurement would be? The reason I ask is because I have all the ingredients in my house besides the cocoa, but I do have cacao and want to try this recipe ASAP :-)

Thanks so much for all these awesome recipes!

I made these last night, and I have to say that I was finding it difficult to NOT eat all the “dough” right out of the bowl. I added a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter because it’s next to impossible for me to not pair chocolate with peanut butter. The banana in the mix made the decision even easier!

My husband raved about these as well, saying how fudgey and creamy they were, unlike traditional macaroons which are sort of candy-like and crumbly (in texture and sweetness). I definitely prefer a more chocolate/less sugar type macaroon, and will probably be making these “monthly”, when those chocolate cravings can’t wait for an oven! ;) It took me less than 10 minutes to throw together, aside from letting them chill. You’re a gem!

I definitely love me a good macaroon!!! I’m so happy all these need is a little freeze time — I love these no bake varieties, but they often call for a dehydrator and I’m WAY too lazy to pull that out LOL!!!

Good luck in all your decision making. My husband likes comfort and familiarity and I love adventure and change, so while I would love to move to somewhere new and exciting, our homebase will probably always be close to where we are now —- not that that’s a bad thing; it just means we have lots of travelling to do in our future!

I can totally relate to your current seemingly directionless and unsettled life. My husband and I have been renting for a good long while and we have no plans to buy anything. Neither of us are interested in settling anywhere and we want to do a good amount of traveling (long-term traveling – like 6 mos. at least!) so it wouldn’t even make sense to buy anything. In fact, right now we’re living in a furnished, rented townhouse. It’s great and low-maintenance and we can pick up and leave whenever we need to (which looks like it’s going to be in about a month), but it’s still a little difficult trying to live with so much in “limbo.”

Anyway, good luck with sorting through everything, and great outlook on just trying to maintain a sense of appreciation for your life and how flexible it is :)

These were DELICIOUS! They were also incredibly easy to make. I’m not a vegan, but I do love making as many plant-based meals and snacks as possible, so this fits our taste buds and our lifestyle. I did not have chia seeds, but I added flax seeds (1T) because I did want as many plants in there as possible. They came out fantastic. This is definitely a keeper, along with the Peppermint Patty Bars that I love so much!

Mine weren’t frozen or as stiff as I’d like after 20 minutes in the freezer. I waited at least double that time for them to not be so soft and mushy. But hey, even soft and mushy they were great!

I made these today from the Yummly site, having all the ingredients in the house, and a craving for sweets! Their recipe calls for chai spices; cinnamon, cardamom, clove and pepper. I used them sparingly. Instead of freezing or baking the macaroons, I used my dehydrator and they came out perfect. I think I will use less coconut oil next time, as I don’t like the ‘greasy’ feel. These are an easy and delicious treat!

These are delicious! I did have to make a substitution which I don’t usually like to do on the first go round of trying a recipe. My 1 year old banana monster ate the last ripe one I had so I subbed in a small container of applesauce (~1/2 cup) for the banana and maple syrup. (I like desserts chocolate-y and not very sweet.) I also threw in 3T vegan vanilla protein powder and some raisins.

Hmmm…once I get off track I really get off track. Nevertheless they are awesome and even despite the lack of added sugar my 4 yr old and his buddy thought they were fantastic. I will try them as written soon.

And, while here, I’ll throw in a vote for my adopted home- Portland, OR. Fantastic outdoor access, great people, and amazing food for vegans and non-vegans alike.

How long would these last in the freezer? I was thinking of making quite a few of them ahead of time for the Holidays but not sure if they would last that long.
