The traditional recipe for marzipan contains egg whites but fear not fellow vegans, we don't have to miss out on this delicious paste of almondyness (made up word).
This marzipan is quick and easy to make and super delicious and only needs a hand full of ingredients. I guarantee it won't last long in your fridge.
1 and 1/2 cups of almond meal/flour
1 tsp lemon juice
3 Tbs Pure maple syrup
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp water
Add the almond flour to a large bowl
Now add the rest of the ingredients.
Give everything a stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.
Now with clean hands, get in there and squish with your fingers to form a sticky dough.
Now place the marzipan onto a piece of plastic wrap and shape it into a log.
Wrap it tightly and twist it a few times.
Put the wrapped marzipan in a freezer bag and let it set in the fridge for an hour or over night.
Now your marzipan is ready to use however you wish.
The marzipan will last in your fridge for several weeks but I guarantee it won't last longer than a day ;)
