Coconut Chocolate Chip Macaroons

These macaroons are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and almost Paleo. Do you have anyone in your life that once they hear these words they automatically pass?! My sister is the queen of this. Once I tell here something is Paleo she gives me “that look” and I know she’s already skeptical before she even tries it. I promise you these are an exception though. They just have some really great quality ingredients packed with flavor so you don’t need a lot of them. They get crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Perfect cookie in my book. So when you make these don’t tell anyone they are free of anything! Let them try them, make their opinions and then inform they just how good they are. I bet they’ll be surprised!
