Coconut macaroons on a table.

Must Make Simple Macaroons

All of the flavors of a classic French patisserie, without any of the fuss! While these heavenly treats may be irresistible, they only contain low FODMAP ingredients that are no stress to digest. They have the perfect combination of feel-full fiber and satisfying fats to prevent you from running on empty (and to the bathroom). Not to mention, they are lower sugar alternatives that help keep your health goals in check. Compared to store-bought options that often contain high FODMAP corn syrups, these must-make macaroons get sweetened with dark chocolate and maple syrup. Enjoy them trigger-free! Have them as a sweet treat, mid-day pick-me-up, or decadent breakfast. They are must-make macaroons for a reason!
