Coco-roonsCoco-roonsIt’s my birthday! We’re gonna party like it’s my birthday! Today calls for a special treat. I wanted to share something extra delicious on this extra special day…. my 30th birthday!!! Those that are closest to me know that I LOVE my birthday. July 15th is pretty much the best day of the year. Hee hee. So. I thought I’d share a healthy treat that you are sure to enjoy (if you love coconut that is). A few months ago my friend introduced me to Banana Coconut Snackaroons. One bite and I immediately fell in love. I also appreciated the ingredients and was thoroughly impressed that they weren’t loaded down with lots of sugar. Within the week I made a special trip down to Whole Foods to pick up a bag for myself. The only downside was the price tag. These babies will run you $9.99 a BAG for appox 13 snackaroons. Yowsa. I recently visited Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago and tried a new brand that was on sale for $6.99 a bag: Wonderfully Raw Coco-Roons. They were delightful! I bought the Vanilla Maple and the Lemon. Both were DELISH! I decided it was going to get expensive buying them, so I found the recipe and made them! They are SO yummy!!!  Try them out and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

  1. 1 1/2 c. almond flour
  2. 1 1/2 c. dried shredded unsweetened coconut
  3. 1/3 c. coconut flour
  4. 2 big pinches of salt
  5. 6 tbsp. Grade B maple syrup (or honey, or agave)
  6. 4 tbsp. lemon juice
  7. 2 tsp. vanilla
  8. 1 tbsp. lemon zest
  9. 1/4 c. + 1 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  1. Mix together dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl: almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut flour, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine the maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon zest. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.

    Have you ever used the finely shredded coconut? I just saw it on another blog and have been dying to find a recipe to try out. This one sounds awesome!

    1. Yvonne

      Hmmm finely shredded coconut?? I think the kind that I finely shredded actually! I buy mine in the bulk food section of the health store. Now that I think about it, the shreds are much smaller than the “Bakers” version. So I think you would be fine to use it! Thanks for the comment 🙂

    I made something similar and my guys LOVED it – this needs to be next! Lemon and coconut sounds heavenly !

    Yvonne, I have LOVED the Lemon Pie CocoRoons ever since I found some at Marshall’s. I just tried your recipe for an Easter family gathering and they taste just like the ones I bought! Thanks so much for sharing! They were a big hit, BTW!

    1. Yvonne

      Joanne that makes me so happy! Aren’t they the best?! I’m so happy you tried them and even happier you loved them as much as I do – woohoo!

    1. Yvonne

      Hee hee, that’s pretty funny! No I have not, but I have tried that flavor and they are SO good! I need to experiment more with them!

    any idea how much cocoa to add if you wanted to make the chocolate brownie version? Thank you

    1. Yvonne

      Hi Keri! I’m not sure.. that’s an excellent question. Hmm, I would think 1 tbsp wouldn’t be enough, maybe 1/4 c. Let me know if you try it! I need to do that version. Sounds delicious!

    Yvonne, this recipe is puuurfect — way better than any of the others I looked at! I brought them to all of my coworkers for Christmas. I actually modified the recipe by splitting the batch in half and making 1/2 chocolate brownie and 1/2 strawberry. THANK YOU!

    1. Yvonne

      Oh I’m so happy! What were the alterations you made to make chocolate brownie & strawberry? I’d LOVE to try them!!!
