3-Ingredient Coconut Macaroons

3-ingredient coconut macaroons! (Madame Cocos Copycat) Use sweetened condensed coconut milk for a lactose-free version. These macaroons are gluten free too.

In The Netherlands, we have a concept called “Madame Cocos“. They sell fresh made coconut macaroons but also sell tubs of macaroon “dough”. A few weeks back my “bro-in-law” bought a bag of these macaroons. The shop is super cute and they sell all kinds of macaroons: regular, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and rum and raisins. So good. I’m not sure how much my sis’ bf paid for the fresh macaroons, but when I saw the tubs of “dough” for € 5,50 each on their website I was a bit shocked! (One tub makes 8 large macaroons) And so I decide to make my own recipe (as usual). Coconut macaroons are really super easy to make. Really. Anyone can do this; it’s a matter of stirring. In addition to needing no skills, this recipe takes only three ingredients! Three! So if you’re a true coconut lover, you can’t skip this easy treat. This recipe makes 10 macaroons and the ingredients will cost you about € 3,50. Read more

Sorry guys, I’m not over my blueberry addiction yet. They’re just too freaking delicious. I combined my addiction with a healthy recipe for a change though. In addition, it’s a recipe for two people! Recipes for two are perfect for my household. No waste but still super delicious. Today’s baked oats are full of blueberries and so fragrant from the spices. I love spices. And did I tell you this recipe is glutenfree, lactosefree, nutfree ánd free of refined sugar. I wasn’t even aiming for that, but I take no (healthy) bonuses for granted. Total damage? 171 kcal. Best.breakfast.ever. You’re welcome 😉

How’s everyone coping with the weather? Strange things are happening over here in The Netherlands. Like I said before, one day it’s cold and the next it’s hot. The past few days the weather decided to be cold again. Too cold for my liking. I would just love to hug a big bowl of steaming hot pumpkin soup 24/7. Seriously, I think I have, what I like to call “Tropical-Genes”. Because I feel cold when other people still feel like it’s warm-ish ^^” The other day at work, all my colleagues were discussing whether to  Read more

But surprises are what makes life fun, right? Just like Read more
