Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

As a self professed lover of all things that contain coconut, these little treats satisfy my coconut addiction without being heavy on the sugar.

The little jammy gems will embellish any party or afternoon tea. These would also be great for a Halloween party as the raspberry jam can look like splashes of blood, these will go so fast you’ll have to make another batch.

These are naturally dairy and gluten free, so everyone will be able to experience these colorful taste sensations.
