Little Bird Chocolate Macaroons
I have said it once, and I will say it again, a girl has got to have treats. Even if you are striving for the healthiest diet in the world, forgoing treats is in my mind the quickest way to fail. I find that when I deny myself the small pleasures in life, I really want to rebel.
So with this in mind I wandered into our local organic shop, and found these – Chocolate Macaroons. These babies are quite simply heavenly, and not only that they are raw, organic, sugar, dairy and gluten free. As usual my co-taste tester was my non – vegan husband, and he adored these!
One of the primary ingredients in these is Raw Cacao. Cacao is a superfood, containing the mood-enhancing ( natural!) chemicals Phenylethylamine and Theobroma. No wonder they taste so good.
All of the other ingredients are clearly labelled on the pack and include Coconut, Coconut Oil, Vanilla Bean, Vanilla Extract, Agave, Maple Syrup and Himalayan crystal salt.
Little Bird make 4 types of macaroons, my other favourite flavour being Passion fruit and Macadamia. They also have a variety of other products.
Now I have to be honest and say these macaroons are not the cheapest on the shelf at $8.90 NZD for a packet of 5, but less than $2.00 a macaroon is a pretty good deal in my opinion for pure organic deliciousness!
Note – Little Bird did not ask me to review this product. I just really really like them!
