Coconut Macaroons : Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg Free Dessert

This healthier version of coconut macaroons are perfect to share with family and friends. People with food allergies don’t need to miss out on enjoying a holiday treat. This recipe uses almond flour, but leaves out the eggs whites and milk. I love that it’s sweetened with only pure maple syrup.  With just a few ingredients and a food processor, Coconut Macaroons can be made quickly for a melt-in-your-mouth delicious treat!
