Key Lime Pie Macaroons (Coco-roons) are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and raw!

A few weeks ago I shared the recipe for Lemon Pie Macaroons. Since many of you sent me pictures and feedback saying you loved them, I knew that I had to share another variation of the recipe. Everyone loves Key Lime Pie and it is no secret that so many of you love key lime and coconut. After all, my Key Lime Coconut Energy Bites recipe is one of the most popular recipes on this website. These little cookies are the perfect treat because I know that I always have the ingredients on hand and they require little time or effort. Key Lime Pie Macaroons are made with a few simple ingredients, including coconut cream, coconut oil, almond flour, fresh lime zest, lime juice and coconut.

Coconut cream adds the creamy flavor and consistency that you love about key lime pie. They are just like cookies but you don’t feel bad about eating them. I would be lying if I said I didn’t have one for breakfast one day along with a bowl of fresh fruit.

I know that the recipe only calls for a few tablespoons of coconut cream, but there are plenty of other options to use up the remaining can of coconut cream. No Bake Raspberry Lemon Cookie Cups come to mind. For the limes, I just use whatever I have available. Both Key Limes and Persian (traditional) limes work well.

Yields about 1 dozen small cookies

Save Recipe



  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until well blended and the mixture starts to clump. Using a one-inch cookie scoop, pack the mixture into the scoop and place cookie on cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Turn off oven but leave the cookies inside for 15 additional minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days (see notes for completely raw version).


**You can use regular limes or key limes.

*To make these raw, rather than baking them in the oven, dehydrate them for 8 hours on 110 degrees.

These cookies are soft. They do not firm up like a standard cookie because they are meant to be (almost) raw. When you slow bake or deydrate they should firm up a bit though.

    Since key lime pie and macaroons are two dessert staples for me, I’m loving this version, Ashley! They’re just gorgeous!

  13. Julie | This Gal Cooks

    After reading over the ingredients, I realized that I have all of them in stock. I’d love to try the raw method so I’ll have to look into how to do that. A while back, I found a small bag of vegan/raw macaroons at Homegoods of all places (they actually have a decent gourmet foods section) and absolutely loved them. Your recipe reminds me of them so I’ll have to give it a try sometime, especially considering I almost always have the ingredients in my pantry!

  31. Matt

    are these meant to finish up hard or soft?

    • Ashley

      Hi, Matt! They will be quite soft. The are meant to be (almost) raw so they are not like your standard hard cookie. The slow bake or deydrate should firm them up a little though.

      • Matt

        Thanks for the clarification.
        Eating them as soon as they cooled down I was a little underwhelmed mainly by the texture and wished that I had cooked them a little hotter for a bit of crunch on the outside and the softness on the inside.
        However, after 24 hours in the fridge I see the method in your madness! They are like coconut, lime rum balls. Fantastic!
        Thanks for sharing the recipe.

        • Ashley

          Yes, the refrigeration is key for this type of recipe. I am so glad to hear that you loved them!
