Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate & Chai Macaroons

Every week I make chocolate macaroons to sell at the market & they sell out super fast.  Recently I decided to mix it up a little & add some chai for a bit of extra vavavoom :)  So here's the recipe,  give them a lash & see what you think !

Ingredients - Makes 16; 

300gm Coconut

360gm Icing Sugar

4 drops Vanilla

35gm Cocoa Powder

35gm Chai Powder (I use the Drink Me Chai brand)

4 egg whites

Dark chocolate pieces roughly chopped ( I use Green & Blacks, Aines chocolate or Roisins chocolate).  You could also use chocolate chips or white chocolate pieces.

Method;

I use a mixer with a paddle for this recipe, it can however be done by hand.

Heat the oven to 180c.  Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Combine all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl & add in the vanilla. 

Add in the egg whites one at a time & combine fully.

Once everything is mixed,  grab an ice cream scoop or a tablespoon , scoop out balls of the mixture & place on the baking tray.

Place your chocolate pieces on top of each macaroon & place in the oven for 15 minutes.

The will look gooey when they come out & will be very soft to the touch but be brave,  don't be tempted to put them back in the oven !  Just let them cool on the tray & then transfer to a wire rack to cool off fully.

If you place these in an airtight container they will last for 3/4 days.

Enjoy !
