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!

 Gluten Free Chia Plus Coconut Granola Cereal Recipe, sugar free

I have to tell you a story. I think you'll relate. I bought a box of Nature's Path Chia Plus Coconut Granola. It was a great price at Aldi and cheaper than I could make it myself...
No, it didn't say gluten free but it looked so good and it was organic. I munched some when I got home (it was so good!) and I had a mild gluten reaction the next day, so I put the box away. I know that was silly, but I'm not perfect!

Not long after that, my sister mentioned how much she loved this cereal and I gave her my box. Then it disappeared from Aldi and she couldn't find it anywhere for a good price! 

So, I made up a recipe for her and now we both get to enjoy it! Of course, it's not exactly the same as the original, but it's pretty darn close.
