To combat the irony we’re sending you this stealth sweet treat. What’s so stealth about a macaroon? Well, it’s primarily coconut which is full of nutrients and healthy fats–that your body uses for energy. This fat will keep you full and curb cravings for more of the sweet stuff.
They are also easy to make and oh, so impressive to serve. Make some this weekend and let us know how it goes in the comments below!
