Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I love the sweet chewiness of a coconut macaroon but the sugar content in the commercial products was always too much for my tastes. Until I made these...They are divine and healthy! And guess what? they are super easy to make gluten free!

Skinny Gluten Free Chocolate Chip cookies

These are Skinnier than my original recipe and they are Low Glycemic if you use the palm sugar alternative or try the sugar free alternative! 

                So live it up and make yourself a cookie darlings, without too much guilt.
