Coconut Fit Macaroon

protein coconut macaroon

Last week we were busy in the kitchen creating more healthy, gluten free, low sugar snacks and today’s recipe is a new favorite of ours.

These coconut macaroons are filled with protein and made with a few ingredients.

We got 2 recipes for you all today to enjoy!

raw vegan protein macaroon

As we were making them, we knew we wanted a stevia based macaroon and one with coconut nectar, as we just love it.

The coconut macaroon made with coconut nectar provides more of a soft chewier cookie than the one made with stevia.

Chocolate chips were used in the stevia macaroon, as we wanted a chocolate chip macaroon. You can easily use cacao nibs or and chocolate you prefer.

Coconut Fit Macaroons (raw, vegan, glutenfree)
Recipe Type: snack
Author: purelytwins
Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins
raw vegan gluten free protein coconut macaroons
  • Cinnamon Coconut Nectar Macaroon –
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 cup perfect protein
  • 2 tbsp coconut nectar (liquid sweetener)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Chocolate Chip Stevia Macaroon –
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 cup perfect fit protein
  • 15 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 4 tbsp water
  1. For both macaroons, stir all ingredients in large bowl. Add more or less water or coconut nectar till you desired texture. You want the batter to hold together.
  2. Once batter ready, scoop macaroons onto a plate and set in fridge. Or you can dehydrate them for about 1-2 hours at 105 degrees, or bake them at 200 degrees for 30 minutes or so.

We used perfect fit brown rice protein, so if you use a different brand the taste and texture may vary.

These macaroons were soft and chewy throughout. Not your typical macaroon that is usually hard on the outside with a soft center. These are more soft chewy macaroon that will just melt in your mouth ๐Ÿ˜‰

We used perfect fit protein powder as we love it, so please remember the taste and texture will vary depending on what protein powder you use.

Do you like coconut macaroons? Do you like coconut?

Years ago we both hated anything coconut, funny now as we cannot get enough of it.

Liz September 10, 2012 - 11:06 am

I am EXACTLY like you were — you couldn’t PAY me to get within 10 feet of something with coconut in it. NOW, I want to bathe myself in the stuff. ;-p

I absolutely love coconut!! Everything about it is just so yummy. I definately have to try these out!

Ashley Lomas September 10, 2012 - 1:06 pm

Coconut nectar… As in coco water/milk/cream??
๐Ÿ™‚ thanks ladies— I LOVE all you do

purelytwins September 10, 2012 - 4:52 pm

coconut nectar is a liquid sweetener like honey or agave

Ashley Lomas September 10, 2012 - 4:57 pm

Ahhh! So I may be able to use a bit of coconut palm sugar mixed with a Tbs or so of water??

Sara Man September 10, 2012 - 2:21 pm

In the cinnamon macaroon the recipe says 14 tsp cinnamon. I am assuming that should be 1/4 tsp or 1 tsp? 14 seems like a lot!! ๐Ÿ™‚

purelytwins September 10, 2012 - 4:51 pm

haha thanks I will make that change now – it is 1/4 tsp cinnamon.

Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness September 10, 2012 - 5:42 pm

I love macaroons! This is such an awesome recipe! Can’t wait to try it out!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) September 10, 2012 - 6:58 pm

We are coconut lovers here! Jay used to hate it, but after I toasted it and make the pina colada cake, he’s a HUGE fan. These both look amazing!

purelytwins September 10, 2012 - 10:46 pm

yay for more coconut lovers!

chris September 10, 2012 - 9:11 pm

Did you girls dehydrate these or not? Do you prefer them dehydrated or not?

How many does each recipe make, and about how much protein does each chew have?

I look forward to making these real soon!!!!!

purelytwins September 10, 2012 - 10:47 pm

We dehydrated the stevia ones for a little bit, we liked both version. How many it makes varies, depending on how big or small you scoop the macaroons.

Kayla September 11, 2012 - 5:22 am

Tina @ Best Body Fitness September 11, 2012 - 8:02 am

Love love love coconut. These look so good with all the different coconut ingredients. Always a good sign when you can see coconut flaking in the finished product, too.

PS – Soft and chewy macaroons are way more my style. Can’t wait to try these!

Christa @ Edible Balance September 11, 2012 - 10:49 am

LOVE coconut, I especially have been loving coconut sugar and nectar. The best sweetener (apart from maple syrup) in my opinion! These macaroons look amazing, perfect timing to make them for my plane trip next week ๐Ÿ™‚

purelytwins September 11, 2012 - 10:52 am

we agree, love nectar almost as much as maple ๐Ÿ™‚

julie September 11, 2012 - 10:50 am

zosia September 11, 2012 - 5:04 pm

how many servings per flavour?

purelytwins September 11, 2012 - 5:11 pm

Zosia it will vary depending how big you make the cookies.

Brittany September 11, 2012 - 9:08 pm

Yum! These look great ladies. I made a similar recipe recently but used egg whites so it’s nice to see a vegan version.

Priya September 16, 2012 - 12:08 pm

These look great!
I don’t use stevia, would honey work as well?

purelytwins September 16, 2012 - 4:01 pm

yes honey should be fine

Mindy October 14, 2012 - 3:09 pm

These look great. I don’t like the taste of Stevia. What other sweeteners can I substitute in your recipes? I made the sweet potato protein pancakes today and just left it out entirely. We used mashed banana and pb&j as a light spread instead of the yogurt and my kids loved it. Thanks much for the wonderful recipes.

Morgan February 26, 2013 - 10:10 pm

Hi Purelytwins!
This recipe looks delicious! Could I substitute the protein fit packet with any other ingredients? I don’t have access to buy them online.
Thanks!! ๐Ÿ™‚

purelytwins February 27, 2013 - 8:59 am

you can use any other protein powder ๐Ÿ™‚

lulu PINELO March 11, 2013 - 2:17 pm

purelytwins March 11, 2013 - 5:55 pm

As many as you like!

Megan (The Lyons' Share) December 8, 2013 - 5:25 pm

Just made these (the stevia ones, baked 30 mins at 200) and loved them! They will definitely become a staple for me! Thanks ladies!!

purelytwins December 8, 2013 - 7:16 pm
