Mini Crunchy Macaroons #TheLeftoversClub

mini crunchy macaroonsThis month for #TheLeftoverClub I have the pleasure to send some delicious mini treats to my friend Shaina Wizov from Take a bite out, and it is amazing because I feel the we know each other even thought she lives in the other side of the country.
And I choose something not so sweet or heavy because she ask me to make her a light treat.
So I made this mini crunchy macaroons, a little different from the one you normally eat because I add some corn flakes, to make it more crunchy and lest heavy with the coconut.
This recipe is inspired by a cookbook a friend gave me long time ago, and the recipe is similar but I chance a few ingredients to make it low sugar, low sodium and low carb.
If you make this macaroons, you will notice the difference because the low sugar make them just perfect, not as sweet and heavy on the flavor and the best part you can eat 3 of these, Amazing!
So hope you enjoy and enjoy and enjoy.
Did I said enjoy? I meant devore ūüôā
