EASY Coconut Mocha Vegan Macaroons {Video Tutorial}



  • 1 cup or more whipped aquafaba from my recipe tutorial. This is basically just chickpea brine that’s whipped. see notes of alternative
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Madagascar bourbon vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp ground espresso or coffee (regular or instant)
  • Pinch of salt


  • Dark chocolate (vegan)
  • Or use my vegan/paleo Magic Shell Recipe (see notes)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325F
  2. In a large bowl, mix the aquafaba peaks and vanilla together
  3. Add the coconut and sugar to the aquafaba mixture and stir until all the coconut is evenly coated.
  4. Gently fold in your maple syrup, espresso, and pinch of salt and mix again.
  5. Pack the macaroon mixture into a cookie scoop to form dome shapes.
  6. Place the macaroons on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until they start to brown slightly.
  8. Remove and Allow them to cool.
  9. Once the macaroons have cooled, make the chocolate topping.
  10. Melt baking dark chocolate and drizzle or dip on your macaroons. You also use my vegan chocolate magic shell recipe
  11. Place them on parchment to cool completely before eating.
  12. Store in the fridge.


  • Dark Chocolate Magic Shell Recipe for topping, recipe is from this post – chocolate magic shell recipe
  • You can try using agave nectar but it might not be as thick to hold macaroon together as maple syrup. It’s best to use a cookie scooper to pack the coconut mix in then place on baking sheet.
  • Egg replacer alternatives- Aquafaba alternative If you are paleo, 2-3 egg whites whipped works great. IF you are vegan and don’t want to use aquafaba, you can try adding 1 -2 tbsp of a pea protein or another egg replacer. I’ve also heard that you can use Agar Powder – For each egg white, dissolve 1 tbsp plain agar powder in 1 tbsp water. Whip, chill and whip again.
