Marvelous Macaroons

Courtesy of Diane Blanchard This recipe is from an awesome vegan restaurant in my home town called Green Cuisine. If you ever visit Victoria, BC, they really should give it a try, they'll love it.

Ingredients:

2 cups coconut (roast for 4 minutes)
2 cups grated carrot
1 cup brown rice (ground into flour) or
1 1/2 cups brown rice flour already ground
1/4 cup oil of your choice
1 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
Zest from 1/2 an orange (zest grated peel)

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together. Place a sheet of baking paper on a cookie sheet. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop them with. Try to make sure that any pieces of grated carrot are tucked under the macaroons. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes.

* To do some plain and some chocolate, make up regular recipe and scoop out 6 plain macaroons and then stir 1/2 carob chips into the remaining mix.
