These Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons are the perfectly sweetened holiday cookie! They are so delicious, while also being gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar free!

Passover is one week away. Coconut macaroons are a Passover staple, but for those of you who don’t celebrate; they are probably one of my favorite light cookies anytime of the year. Sweet, light, coconut-y, and of course for me, a touch of mini chocolate chips and dipped in chocolate. Perfect. And did I mention they are super easy to make?

Passover is a time where we get together with family, have our traditional Jewish eats (Swedish meatballs, brisket, rolled cabbage, etc.), and reflect. On Passover you eat only unleavened bread and flourless desserts. Perfect for a grain-free/gluten-free house! Minus the matzo… I make a mean Matzo Lasagna!

I love Passover because like some of other holiday’s throughout the year, my nanny (grandma) comes in from Florida. Her famous recipes are the ones that line the table year after year. I have learned so much from her as a person, and as a chef! This week you’ll find a recreation of Nanny’s Swedish Meatballs that taste just like her traditional dish; one that is so special to me. This year Passover falls smack in the beginning of the week; sadly, heading back to New York isn’t an option, but I’ll go the weekend after to enjoy the time with my family!

But back to the macaroons, shall we? We couldn’t keep our hands off of these babies!
