Germans love to bake, especially around Christmas. I wanted to provide you with an abundance of recipes so that you do not just have to nibble on that one cookie whilst everyone else enjoys 3 – 4. These recipes are a bit different from my usual blog posts. Shorter, with no educational parts, but a section to give you hints and tips so that they all turn out perfect. One photoshoot, 8 recipes over the next two weeks. Enjoy! 🤗
I love, love, love these orange chocolate macaroons. They are simply gorgeous, divine and super tasty! I am so happy with how these turned out. It took me several attempts to find the right balance of orange, coconut, and chocolate – but this version is perfect 💫 .
These cookies look fancy – but I promise they come together super easy and can be made in no time.
Tips for baking these Orange Chocolate Macaroons
- Gluten-free baking is a bit different than normal baking. As there is no “gluten”, which basically binds the dough, we are adding psyllium husk to the mix. This will act as a binding agent. The dry dough has to be mixed very thoroughly in order to ensure that the psyllium husk is everywhere and can “bind”.
- Do ensure that the oven is sufficiently hot. Gluten-free baking requires your oven to be at the optimal temperature before putting something into it.
- I used an ice cream scoop in order to scoop out the perfect amount and make the Orange Chocolate Macaroons look pretty.
These orange chocolate macaroons are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and if you use vegan chocolate – vegan. Enjoy this delight of a macaroon!! I hope you will fall in love with them as much as we did 🤗.
