Man does it feel good to be back in the kitchen!  Before I left for vacation I had received a lot of requests for skinny desserts and I wanted to come up with some crave-worthy recipes that tasted just as good as their sinful counterparts.  Well I think I found a winner.
These tasty macaroons are made with angel food cake, coconut and crushed almonds…that’s it!  No oil, no eggs, no butter – NADA and they taste delicious.  They’re light and chewy with just a bit of crunch and would make a perfect treat with your morning coffee or a wonderful snack to satisfy that sweet tooth.  Best part about these little sweets is that they’re uber easy!!  Whip a batch up in no more than 5 minutes and pop them in the oven for about 25 minutes.  I bet your kiddies will love them too 🙂
Enjoy my friends!
