Coconut Orange Holiday Macaroons

Holiday Cookies 😊

Orange, almond, peppermint, and clove are my favorite flavorings this time of year. I’ve also been working on recreating the cookie favorites I had as a child into healthier more nutrient full versions. It’s been a treat to experiment and make new creations that are just as good, if not better than their original version. All while knowing I’m filling my body with good nutrition even when I’m treating myself.

Here is an orange flavored cookie similar to a macaroon. I made mine into a round dime shape, however you could definitely make them into ball form like the more traditional macaroon. I hope you enjoy and happy holidays.
