Emmy's Macaroons

I was lucky enough to be allowed to sample Emmy's Organics delicious/raw/vegan macaroons.

The most difficult part of this assignment?

Deciding which flavor to try first.

I was given six delicious flavors:

Coconut Vanilla, Choco Chili, Dark Cacao

Lemon Ginger, Mint Chip, and Choco Orange

I surprised myself and started with Coconut Vanilla (I thought for sure I would tear into the chocolate).

I was kind enough to share these with my kids.  My daughter thought they tasted like vanilla ice cream...just not cold.

I have to agree with her the vanilla had a nice light and pleasing flavor.  A completely fantastic way to end a meal.

The only flavor I did not try was the Choco Chili...I don't like the two mixed together.  So I gifted them to a friend of mine, and he thought they were wonderful.

So I mentioned that they are delicious but they are also made with a short list of ingredients (always a plus sign in my book).

The coconut vanilla are made up of seven things (all of which I can pronounce and more than likely probably have in my pantry):
  • organic raw shredded coconut
  • organic raw agave nectar
  • non-gmo almond flour
  • organic raw coconut oil
  • fair trade vanilla flavor (alcohol-free)
  • raw vanilla bean
  • himalayan crystal salt.
Not only does Emmy's make a delicious and well thought out product but they carry that through to their packaging.  The macaroon packages can be composted.  How cool is that?

I love getting behind companies that subscribe to the same types of ideals that I do.

I am happy to say I would recommend these to everyone...you just need to like coconut!

You can find Emmy's on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.


  1. Oh I love coconut. I wish I had a bag with me! Thank you for sharing them with us Rachel! I'm glad to be back home after a week of traveling...and finally catching up on my favorite blogs. I hope you have a blessed week!

  2. I love coconut, but it's amazing how so many people don't? Ha! Lucky you, take care,
    Shauna xo

  3. Love coconut and so do the kiddos- I'll have to look for these!

  4. Rachel, don't think I am a snob (it may be true) but I think I've lost the taste for store bought cookies. I know crazy right? I bake a lot and I just love knowing they're fresh from my kitchen instead of sitting on a store shelf for who knows how long.

    That said if these showed up on my doorstep I would try them all!
