Hail Merry's Gluten-Free Blonde Macaroons
After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.Â The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.Â It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
When I took my first bite I noticed that the texture of these macaroons was soft, slightly chewy, but not overly sweet – I guess they read my mind about my usual complaints about most macaroons – they tasted great. I found the size of each macaroon (just short of the size of a golf ball) was just the perfect size to get satisfaction for a sweet tooth like me, but the best part is that they only have 70 calories and 5.5
Upon further reading of their packaging I noticed that Hail Merry didn't cut any corners when they developed these little bites of goodness! The ingredient list is short , wholesome and surprisingly these macaroons are not only raw and vegan, but are only lightly sweetened with maple syrup. I must also mention that shredded coconut has twice the fiber of oats, and that coconut oil is known to contribute to healthier hair, skin and can help aid proper digestion.
I absolutely loved the taste of these macaroons with their real coconut flavor and texture! These macaroons give a "junk food" taste with the quality and nutrition that you wouldn't expect from such a nice little treat – in my book they are definitely worth trying!
