My dad bought a box of coconut macaroons a couple of weeks ago from the bakery. One bite and I felt like a six-year-old again. Some foods just instantly make you think of childhood. I used to love these delicious macaroons, but for some reason I haven’t had them in years. So I was pretty excited when my dad brought home that box. It suddenly occurred to me that those actually ought to be quite healthy. I mean – grain free (almost) and everything. I was so wrong.
I’m not the kind of person who checks calories and such things, but I do often check the ingredient-list (so funny additives here please). The delicious macaroons had more sugar in them than coconut… Like, refined white sugar. Not exactly healthy, huh? So I thought: you can make some just as delicious, but healthier and more natural. And so I did.
The outcome was these delicious, moist and actually pretty healthy cookies.
