Coconut and chocolate delights (vegan and gluten free)

Hello little fruits,

I hope you are enjoying life, spring, sun, nature, friends… and all that is given to you in general 🙂

I have always known that one should appreciate the present moment and be grateful for what we have, but in the daily life, when you run from early morning to late night to get things done and you have an endless “to do” list in your mind, it is hard to really stop a second, relax, take a deep breathe and just enjoy the minute. I am in the process of trying to do that more often, and I encourage anyone to try, it feels good, really. To help you, I came up with a quick and easy recipe, you will need 15 minutes to prepare these little vegan coconut and chocolate delights (or bites, or biscuits, or wannabe macaroons, as you want). So you can already have quarter of an hour for you to do nothing but mixing good ingredients, bake them and then the rest of the time you can just enjoy eating them 🙂

Talking more about these little gems, they are soft and moist, they taste the real thing of coconut (nothing like industrial coconut) and the little chocolate hat melts in your mouth…It is a bite of paradise 🙂

So, appreciate your time baking (as I have no doubt you will love the eating part!!!) and remember that life is short and that you should enjoy every little bits.

Here we go: vegan, egg free, dairy free and gluten free coconut and chocolate delights.
