The 'Food52' blog recently published a recipe for gluten-free macaroons. Macaroon are small circular cakes made from ground almonds, coconut and other nuts. The biscuits are a popular gluten-free dessert because they are traditionally made without flour.

This recipe offers a nutritious alternative to conventional coconut macaroons. Instead of using shredded coconut as the main ingredient, this recipe calls for the addition of shredded carrots and ground almonds. The carrots help to keep the cookies moist while the almond flour holds the ingredients together. To give the cookies a bit more flavor, users can also add garam masala, pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon to the mixture.

The gluten-free macaroons are a tasty dessert option for those who cannot consume wheat.
