Macaroons with Pistachios
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the coconut, flour, sugar, pistachios, chocolate, chia, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and mix well.
Let the dough sit for 5 minutes, then, using your hands, form about 10 small cones / pyramid shapes.
Delicately place the cones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake until golden, about 18 minutes.
Mason Jar Gift
In a mason jar, add the shredded coconut, sugar, spelt flour, ground flax seed, baking powder, salt and chopped pistachios one by one to create visible layers. Add the chocolate chunks last.
Seal the jar, and tie with ribbon, decorative string or wrap in furoshiki!
On the kraft label, write out the ingredients that need to be added as well as the baking instructions.
Tie a decorative ribbon or string around the neck of the jar and attach the gift tag, or, if you have furoshiki cloth, cover the jar and tie at the top
