Sundays without running are worse for my waistline than you’d think.
I bake. A lot.
Today I made cinnamon scones for breakfast. Then did some Sunday errands, made up some hummus to eat with lunch, then got bored again. As I was browsing the latest Runner’s World UK magazine I saw a recipe for healthy macaroons. I make at least 1 recipe from the magazine a month. (Their salmon & sweet potato coconut curry is my go-to dinner now).
Happy Heart Macaroons
170g desiccated coconut
2 egg whites
50g sunflower seeds
25g dried apricots
Buzz it all together in a food processor, shape into 15 balls, place on a baking paper lined tray, and bake for 15 minutes (mine were done at 12) at 180*C.
SO easy. They’re delicious and a great grab-and-go sweet snack. But, I was taking them over to a friend’s for dinner so I tweeked the recipe a bit…
Extra chocolate. Surprised Runner’s World forgot to add that. Choclate makes my heart happy.
Hmmm! Thank you for this recipe!
YUM, these look delicious. I have all the ingredients already in my cupboards, and they are Whole 30 compliant… all I need is a food processor! Going to try these asap!
The dinner guests didn’t even know they were the healthy option! Someone had 4! Defo worth a try. 🙂
Mmm these look delicious (I am saving the recipe). I also wish I could bake more often ( we just can’t eat that much cake and cookies).
Going to give these a try, they look so easy
I discovered them as well in the runner’s world. Love your version with the chocolate and that’s why I added chocolate to mine as well.
I read the recipe in Runners’ World and wondered if they’d be nice- and now I know the answer! Going to add them to my ‘to bake’ list of running fuel.
They’re perfect for a quick bite that will fill you up with good stuff!
