Coco-Roons: vegan macaroons

Remember when I made those decadent chocolate coconut cupcakes with hazelnut cocoa spread icing

Well, I made them again- only this time I had the ingenious idea to garnish them with the most appropriate garnish ever: Coco-Roons! For those who don't know, a Coco-roon is an organic, live [raw], gluten-free, vegan, paleo macaroon (macarOOn...not to be confused with macaron). Like typical macaroons, Coco-roons are made with coconut.

From the company:
"The Original Superfood Cookie We think that says it all!  Sweetened with pure, organic, maple syrup, Coco-Roons are decadent enough for dessert, yet wholesome enough for breakfast.  Have them with your morning coffee or take them on your next adventure.  Share with your friends or keep them all to yourself.  However you choose to indulge, we're sure you'll love these tasty treats!"


So, this combination came to fruition because Coco-roons was kind enough to send me two flavors to sample: brownie and vanilla maple. I had no idea how I was going to make the best use of them...until I found myself daydreaming about said cupcakes. Shown here: the rich and chocolatey brownie flavor on the chocolate coconut cupcake.

But don't get me wrong, you don't always have a coconut cupcake lying around upon which to rest your Coco-roon. Sometimes you just have to eat them plain. It's a hardship.

Showcased here: the light and sweet vanilla maple.

Rest assured: with or without a corresponding cupcake, these bites are decadent, flavorful, and filling.
And, if these aren't your favorite flavors, Coco-roons has you covered; they have 15 varieties to choose from.


  1. I loooooove those cookies! Vanilla maple is the best!

    1. We're going to have to start conducting samplings at Pine Box.


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
