Homemade Macaroons with Oats & Honey Clusters


Ever bitten into a freshly baked macaroon? Perhaps you’ve tried your hand at making them! But we bet you haven’t gone as far as to tweak the recipe for a custom creation. Unlike its French rival, the easily alterable macaron, the macaroon leaves little room to explore new flavors, but a bunch of coconut and chocolate can get pretty repetitive after the first dozen (or so) cookies. Mix in KIND Healthy Grains to add a delectable crunch and sweet honey flavor to this traditional confection.
