Coconut macaroons are a classic favorite! But change them up a bit by making them chocolate drizzled coconut macaroons and they will be a hit during the holidays!

I love making cookies….all kinds of cookies! And since it’s now the holiday season my yearly baking has begun! I’ve been wanting to make these for a while and since I had a long weekend, I felt like it was the perfect time to whip up a batch of these tasty macaroons. Yum with a capital Y!  These little tasty gems are gluten-free and grain-free.

You can make these cookies sugar-free by using monk fruit as your sweetener with a stevia sweetened chocolate chip for the drizzle!

I drizzle on some melted chocolate that is soy, grain, and dairy-free. This is one of my favorite brands of chocolate chips!   It is relatively clean but does have sugar. If you’re looking for a sugar-free option, use these chocolate chips!

I combine the melted chocolate with a little bit of virgin coconut oil which is a huge nutritional bonus!

These macaroons are perfect for holiday entertaining, for family get-togethers, and for everyday desserts!
