Yumm!! These are great! I did not use as much sugar and used whole wheat flour and they were still great. I ussually don't use whole wheat flour but I did not have all purpose. Also I used about 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon almond, and a little more coconut than what was called for!



I made these for my husband who LOVES macaroons. I on the other hand, can't stand coconut and have never tried them before (nor will I). His feedback was that the flavor was good, but he wished they were a little bigger and had more uniform crispiness around the outside. They are moist and look pretty. He keeps eating them though, so something must be right!



Taste great and low fat. Egg White! I added a couple TBSP of smashed almond. yummy!
