This recipe is for perfect coconut macaroons that won't fall apart. They're free of refined sugar, but still sweet. As they bake, the coconut toasts and takes on a delightfully nutty flavor. You don't need any special ingredients to make these, either—everything you need is likely already in your pantry.
