Detox Pumpkin Pie Macaroons

 Detox and pumpkin pie in the same recipe title?

That’s pretty much an oxymoron, right?

I do what I want.

So that’s why I made you healthy macaroons.

You would never know they are healthy but because I told you…the secret is out.

Pumpkin is the reason for the season.

Pumpkin is not only delicious, but it is a great source of fiber, vitamin E, and iron.

  • 1 c. unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • ½ t. ground cinnamon
  • ½ t. pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ t. salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients together until you get a crumbly cookie dough mixture.
  3. The mixture should tighten together when you press down on it using a spatula.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, portion the dough out into small cookies, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms begin to turn golden brown and the cookies are slightly crispy.
