Raw chocolate macaroons

As I’m nearing the end of my university semester I thought I’d share with you one of my final assignments. Don’t worry, it involves food!

For a social media group assignment we were required to create a YouTube video on the topic of our choice. As my group members and I enjoy making (and eating) healthy food we decided to create a ‘how to’ video demonstrating a simple recipe.

I hope you enjoy the demonstration of raw chocolate macaroons!

I would like to thank my group members Emily and Uma for participating in the video.

The macaroons will keep in a sealed container in the pantry for up to four days.
