After months of buying similar macaroons online that were quite expensive, I decided I wanted to made my own and this recipe is affordable and simple. These homemade coconut macaroons are sweet, moist and chewy on the inside and are made using no flour, no dairy and no grains. These macaroons can also be dipped in dark chocolate. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
