Passover began on Monday, which means that observant Jews are spending this whole week avoiding any sort of food with leavened wheat, rye, barley, spelt, or oats. Matzoh becomes a staple to take the place of bread, but what about when it’s time for dessert? Even the healthiest cake or cookie recipes often contain chamtez, the leavened grains forbidden during Passover. Thankfully, there’s a delicious alternative: macaroons!
Not to be confused with the French confection macarons, macaroons are small, deliciously chewy little cakes, often made with coconut and sometimes dipped in chocolate. They’re incredibly simple to make, and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser year-round, whether you’re hosting a Passover meal at your house or don’t have a clue what a Seder is!
In this video, Shana from Wellness Today shares her favorite coconut macaroon recipe. Watch her demonstrate how incredibly simple they are to make, and to see the irresistibly delectable outcome. You’ll want to whip up a batch of your own as soon as the video ends!
