This recipe made 3 dozen Coconut Macaroons for me! I did find that they also freeze well if you want to put some away to eat later but honestly if your kids get a taste of these delicious snacks, they will be done before you know it!
I know that it’s a bit of a stretch to say this is a snack, they might be more of a cookie to be honest. But how many times do you crave something sweet for your afternoon snack time? This is the PERFECT option!
These little cookies are amazing and I LOVE that they are so much healthier than several other cookies that I’ve made. They’re a great option to make as after school treats and even add to my Christmas Cookie trays this year!
