healthy chocolate macaroons

Is is Tasty Tuesday?! All year I look forward to my holiday baking. I’m lucky to have a mom who taught me that cooking and baking was fun and rewarding. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas unless I make some baked goods myself. In the spirit of keeping my treats as healthy as possible, these are low in sugar and are dairy and gluten free! So almost any guest with a food allergy can eat them. I brought them to a holiday party I went to last weekend, and the plate came back empty! What is your favourite holiday treat?! Please share with me in the comments below.
