With the start of Passover, I usually start getting a lot of questions about gluten-free foods versus unleavened bread (ie: “Oh, you can have matzoh right? There’s no yeast!”) Even though I don’t know the ins-and-outs of the holiday, I know that sometimes unleavened does end up meaning that a food is also gluten free (flourless chocolate cake, meringue).
And, as happened to be the case today with… coconut macaroons!
We had a potluck lunch at work, and one of the expert bakers brought these lovely macaroons, made from a recipe from Real Simple. I love that these are naturally gluten free, Passover friendly, and a boost from your traditional macaroon.
These were really light, chewy, and snackable. I could have eaten four or five easily. I will definitely add this to my list of “impressive but easy” desserts.
In other news: G-free NYC is opening tomorrow! I think I may have to stop by after work, even though it’s totally out of the way.
