Grain Free. Vegan. Paleo. Low Carb. Low Sugar. Super Good.
Macaroons may seem like they would be tough to make, but it only takes six simple ingredients and little bit of time to make these delectable and beautiful treats. Each bite is slightly crunchy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. YUM...writing this blog is making me want to eat another one.
Instead of using sweetened condensed milk like most macaroon recipes do, we substituted a can of full fat coconut milk and some honey that we boiled down to make a thicker, sweeter milk. It is similar enough to sweetened, condensed milk but with healthier fat and a cleaner sugar choice...and it really pulls these treats together nicely!
If you are on a low or little to no sugar diet like I am, these beauties fit the bill. They are under 5 grams of sugar and 8 grams of total carbs per serving, making them a great low carb dessert for your holiday, special occasion or for when a sweet tooth strikes. A must try for anyone wanting a simple, elegant dessert that is light on sugar and carbs.
