About the Recipe
About 18 months ago I adjusted my diet significantly to address some health challenges. The program I’m following is called, AIP (the Auto-Immune Protocol). On this diet, I avoid any foods that could potentially cause my immune system to “overreact”, which includes:
- All grains
- Anything artificial
- Refined sugar
- Nuts and seeds (including spices that come from seeds)
- Nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, goji, chilies, etc.)
- And more!
Needless to say, when I had my first craving for sweets – I had to get creative!
As a result, coconut macaroons, have been a favourite of mine over the last several months. Recently, I created a spiced up version to add some Christmassy flair! Now, I’m sharing it with all of you!
These are a great treat to bring to a holiday potluck, as they are quite allergen-friendly, easy to make, and delicious!
