I just came back from NYC where I attended the spirit junkie masterclass. I am on a very high buzz from the excitement of the weekend and I’m going to blog about it tomorrow. Tonight, my friends, how about a yummy vegan recipe.
Coconut macaroons are one of my favorite treats. Actually I love almost anything with coconut as much as I love chocolate. I was so happy stumbling across this recipe on One Green Planet http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-recipe/simple-coconut-macaroons/ I hope you enjoy them too. Happy Sunday.
