These almond joy bites are the perfect bite of sweetness. I don’t know about you, but I love a good coconut macaroon. This is very similar being crunchy on the outside and perfectly chewy in the middle.
Back around Christmas time Heather Christo totally delighted me by sharing a vegan macaroon. When Gluten free cookies were everywhere these totally saved me. This recipe inspired me to create these almond joy bites.
The chocolate chips gently melt into the coconut and give a wonderful sweetness. Don’t be scared of the aquafaba – I’m telling you, you can’t taste it and it works as a wonderful binder. Give it a try! Also, when you form these into balls it’s very important you use your hands and make them tight. You don’t want to use an ice cream scoop or they will flatten and not stick together.
If you give these a try be sure to let me know if you loved them! They have been a sweet treat for us this week and I’ve been staying away from the mini Cadbury eggs (ugh! they are so addicting!) Have a fab weekend friends!
