As a community leader at the I’m always on the lookout for terrific gluten freerecipes to share with our members. One of the biggest challenges people with celiacs or gluten food sensitivities have is finding delicious treats and desserts . Sure Udi’s Gluten Free has wonderful cookies (my favorites are the Snicker Doodles), muffins and even cinnamon roles, but sometimes you want something different. That’s where macaroons fit the bill.
Homemade macaroons are naturally gluten free and were the first GF dessert I ever made for my mother-in-law who has celiacs. This recipe from the National Mango Board is a fun twist on the classic coconut treat. A batch of these would also make a wonderful homemade holiday gift for anyone!
Note: double check to make sure the sweetened flaked coconut you’re baking with doesn’t contain any flour. According to this post Kraft’s Baker's Coconut – Angel Flake Sweetened does not contain gluten. You also may prefer using a “natural” unsweetened flaked coconut product, like the kind made by Bob’s Red Mill.
Great tips on how to shop for and cut up your mango:
