Carrot Coconut Macaroons

Cookies without eggs and butter? Oh my! But believe us, these are crisp and light treats. If you want to make them even more delicious, melt some carob chips, dip the tops in and allow to cool. Vegan can be yummy.

"This was Roma's first introduction to ginger: she made a funny face when smelling it and asked “does this make my skin beautiful if I eat it?' I said yes, thinking she'd object to eating them because of its inclusion, but once baked, we couldn't really detect the ginger. Since these contain no nuts or chocolate, this is one snack I could prepare and send with my daughter to pre-school for her class to enjoy." - Kumi Verma-Des Ruisseaux, mom of Roma, 4, Laval, Que.
