Are you looking for some sweet and easy treats that are also refined sugar and allergen-free? These cocoa and coconut macaroons are dairy, nut, and gluten-free. They come together quickly, satisfy a sweet craving, and are kid-friendly! I sometimes roll mine in a little extra shredded coconut, or sprinkle some shaved dark cocoa on them. Enjoy!

- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2–4 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1-2 Tablespoons coconut oil
