Vegan Blondie Macaroons

I thought I’d give you a little afternoon delight.  A Blondie Macaroon Delight that is.  Glad you were enjoyin’ the Thai-Inspired Homemade Peanut Sauce from earlier today. But these mack-a-rooney’s are where it’s at right now.

I was feelin’ like whippin’ up something yesterday while Skylar was napping and since I can’t run the VitaNoiseBox while she naps, it had to be something I could stir quickly-n-quietly.  Think mouse-like.  So after a quick peruse of RFRW, I decided to tweak up Sarma-n-Matthew’s recipe a little for my own Blondies.

Into a bowl went coconut, maple syrup, vanilla, and 2 other secret ingredients.  Any guesses as to what they are?  I may or may not tell you, because I’m evil that way. 

Then, I put 16 pretty little balls of coconut fat onto my Magic Box screens and popped ’em in at 6:30pm.

Pre-cookin’ close up shot.

And 6 hours later I fethched them.   For those that are doin’ the math, it’s about 12:30am at this point.  I cooked the Macks about 15 degrees hotter in the Excal than Sarma & Mathew recommended but things totally worked beautifully up in here. 

After their un-baking stint…

As a sidebar I think that you could totally do this recipe in a low oven for an hour, give or take, watch ’em like a hawk so they don’t burn.  But there ya have, a recipe where no VitaGod and no Magic Box would be needed.

Two other Huge Notes-To-Self…or to You.  Boy, I have just saved your bootay with these tips.  Pay attention.
1. It is cruel and unusual punishment to have the scent of vanilla & coconut wafting through your house for hours.  Over the pre-dinner, dinner, dessert, and midnight snack hours just makes it even more like ridic.  Bake these when you’re not already hungry or if you are dehydrating them, try either when you’re leavin’ the crib or sleepin’.  The smell is like living in CandyLand for hours.  Insane!

2. After staying up waiting for these badboys to be done, I went to the magic box just before 1am only to find that the Blondies had dripped a mixture of coconut jizz-n-grease congealed with maple syrup all over every single dehydrator rack and screen.   Lucky for me, I had cooked them on the 2nd to the highest shelf.  So I only had a mere 8 screens and 8 racks to wash.  At 1am.  So ’bout 1:45am I that was done and I got into beddie.  Use parchment paper to line your trays and cook them on the lowest rack so in case their is drippage, you ain’t cleanin’ 7 freakin racks!!!!!!!

However, the net result is soooo worth it.  Ever so slightly crunchy on the outside, totally gooey and decadent on the inside.  And the smell.  Heaven on earth, or in my case, in my kitch.

See you in the a.m. kiddies with a weekend recap….

But before I go, tell me what you did this weekend that was super fun-n-cool and made you happpppy!  

Oh and would there possibly be any interest in a contest to win some of these Blondies?  Let me know and I just may be able to hook that up…

  1. Awesome blogger package and pancakes!

    how about some pumpkin/fall recipes!


    I have a total sweet tooth now…off to get that apple I packed!

    ps..I just gave you an award…go see!

  3. delish pancakes! I have a very real concern that my computer might explode with all this fab baking and cooking going on… Skylar is adorable- I love that she enjoys your great dishes! My mom used to make zuchinni bread all the time when I was little and I got teased by my friends for my weird 'cake' and snacks of raw mushrooms and raisins…I was happy with them :D What do her friends think when they come over?

    I'd like more recipes! Bonus points if it's easy and doesn't require vita/high powered equipment or dehydraters. I have an oven, a microwave and a George Foreman!

  4. Yum, yum, yum!
    Those cookies look delish!
    Do you think you could substitute a flavourless oil mixed with dessicated coconut instead of the coconut oil?
    And a different seed (chia, sunflower) instead of the flax seed?

    I (unsuccessfully) tried that pose that you posted on Monday. You make it look so easy!

    As for something that I would like you to post about in the future – I agree with the others. More recipes, that don't require special equipment. Is good. Is nice. :D

  5. oooo cant wait! you know i will be back, cheesecake or not :)

    i love the happy dance! what a doll.

    and that is so interesting that the flax gave it a peanut buttery taste. those look really delicious.. and i am so hungry right now!

  6. I would LOVE to see more recipes! You are so talented in the kitchen and you motivate me to eat more raw and healthy!

    Those breakfast cakes are amazing, and so are the macaroons! I can't wait to see that cheesecake!

  9. I can't believe that is only 3 ingredients – for reals?!? It just doesn't seem possible, but I totally believe it!

    I keep forgetting to comment on the raw cheesecake – I've been anxiously awaiting that recipe!

    Thanks for your nice email and responses – I promise I will write back soon. Or just CALL like I keep sayin' I will! :)

  11. OMG! OMG! I was just thinking tonight I was something new and different for breakfast tomorrow, I think this could be it!! I can't believe the timing of this post.

    I LOL'd at you holding the banana soft serve vitamix upside this morning – love that thick and creamy goodness.

    The last post only showed up once in my reader so republish was good thinking.

  12. yummy pancakes!!! i can't wait to try my bread.

  13. Oh my!! YUM! I want to sink my teeth into that!

  14. Hi,
    I just wanted to say I love your blog! Those pancakes look fantastic. All of the recipes you post look so delicious and inspiring!
    I just started a blog at
    if you have time to check it out!

  15. What lovely looking pancakes! If I were Skylar, I'd be doing the happy dance, too! haha

  16. Ahh those breakfast cakes sound awesome! Even better is that they're only 3 ingredients :D

    I'm with, Liz, I'd like to see more recipes!!!

    p.s. how do you get in on the bread action over at Foodbuzz? I always seem to miss those things.

    Hope you have a wonderful day, love!!!!


  17. Those cookies look amazing, I really must try to make some myself…I'm just such a lazy cook!

    Hope you're well,

  18. I've always wanted to try those pancakes! Looks like I am coming over for breaky!

    Your daughter is adorable!

  19. I just knew you'd make the pancakes. They are so quick, easy and satisfying. I need to make some again.

    Unfortunately, I don't really know if it is her recipe. Another well-known foodie told me she got the idea from him, but never gave him any credit.

    I don't know if this is true or just coincidence. You've got to be careful about these things when you put out a uncookbook. That's one of the reasons I never did.

  20. Sweet baby!! Yummy cookies *drooling*
