I recently stumbled across this amazing coconut almond macaroon on a wedsite called savvy vegetarian .I have tried this recipe a few times with great success , each time altering and tweeking till I had the best final product ( to the agreement of all who tried them ) . I added some coconut extract and switched from ground almonds to almond paste , this gave the macaroon a more moist , chewy texture . I added a little salt and baked them in mini muffin tins to hold their shape better ……just delicious success !
