Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroons
These little macaroons make a lovely treat to have with a cup of tea or coffee. They are small and satisfying at under 200 calories per macaroon! Bake a batch, put them in the freezer and eat them slowly when you really need something sweet. Using all organic ingredients at least means these treats are as healthy as treats can be. Everything in moderation, eat only one at a time!
