In a large bowl, stir together coconut, cocoa powder and salt. Add syrup, oil and vanilla and stir until well combined. Using your hands (dampened, if you like), shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls and transfer to a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. (Alternatively, use a small ice cream scoop to form macaroons.) Cover and refrigerate until cold and firm, about 1 hour. Macaroons will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
