For the macaroons
1 scoop Whey Protein Ecuadorian Banana
¼ cup melted butter/coconut oil
50ml almond milk
70g coconut flour
2tbsp agave/date syrup
For the Homemade Blueberry Jam (pre-made)
1 cup frozen blueberries
2tsp agave syrup
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp agar agar flakes
For the Chocolate coating
1/4 cup Nutristrength coconut oil
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1tbsp agave syrup
For the macaroons:
- Combine all ingredients, except the almond milk, in a food processor and pulse until you get a fine mixture.
- Add the almond milk and then blitz all ingredients for 3 minutes or until the mixture comes together to a sticky dough.
- Roll out between two pieces of baking parchment to 4mm thick. Stamp out 4-5cm rounds - you should get about 14.
For the jam:
- Put the blueberries, sweetener, vanilla, lemon juice and water in a small saucepan on the hob. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture starts to reduce.
- Crush the blueberries in the pan, if needed. Add the agar agar to the saucepan and continue to simmer for 10 minutes until reduced and thick.
- Place jam into a jar and store for later usage.
*Note: The jam does thicken up as it cools down, so don’t worry if it appears a little too runny; it will thicken.
For the chocolate glaze:
- Melt your coconut oil over a low heat and combine with your cacao and agave syrup, whisking in a bowl to combine evenly.
- Dip half of your macaroons in your chocolate, covering them completely. Set aside in the freezer to firm.
- Spoon your jam onto your chocolate-coated macaroons and stick a cookie on top, squeezing together.
- Allow your macaroon to completely soften before eating.
