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!

I had heard that BabyCakes NYC makes a lot of their baked goods with high protein Garfava Bean flours and I love baking with bean flours. I've been wanting to visit BabyCakes for awhile now, but it's a long drive for a cookie!  So when I saw this recipe on the back of the Bob's Redmill Gluten Free Garfava Bean Flour bag I had to try it. 
I made some changes to reduce the sugar, carbs and added flax for even more protein.  They turned out wonderful with no bean flavor at all. 

You have to try these easy Gluten free Blondies!  They have that wonderful crisp brownie edge all the way around and taste like a cross between a brownie and a chocolate chip cookie.  Super yummy and very healthy!  Hope you enjoy  xx
