TIPS from Buka Buki


  • It is a base recipe so feel free to express yourself by adding nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, chia seeds… anything that tickles your fancy when you are making a batch. Cooking should be fun and personal taste-wise.
  • I like to have bits of banana in my macaroon which is why I crush them with a fork. If that isn’t to your taste, you can blend them to have a smoother texture
  • Garri tends to soak all the moisture out of any ingredients so don’t let the mix sit out for too long otherwise you will have very dry macaroons… unless that is to your taste of course.
