Meyer Lemon Coconut Macaroons

Meyer Lemon Coconut Macaroons

Coconut macaroons are delicious little mounds of goodness. They’re the perfect sweet snack (assuming you can stop at one or two)…and they’re surprisingly simple to make.

The great thing about coconut macaroons is that they couldn’t be easier to make. Once you’ve made them once, you’ll soon realize how highly addictive they are. I personally love the bright, lemony, vibrant sweetness of these Meyer lemon ones…which are sweet without being too sweet. You know what I’m talking about, right? But if you’re in a chocolate kind of mood, I’ve got you covered with chocolate coconut macaroons. Or if you’re in a pumpkin mood, check out my pumpkin spice coconut macaroons.

Either way, you can’t go wrong. And I find these Meyer lemon coconut macaroons span all seasons to be appropriate (and delicious) year round.
