Almond Macaroons

The first recipe I would like to share with you comes from my Study Abroad spring semester in London. A sure life changing experience I would never forget. This was a favorite snack of mine on the go.

FAST, EASY & AFFORDABLE!


Health Benefits

Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce hunger and promote weight loss. All things considered, almonds are as close to perfect as a food can get.

Great for a Passover cookery.  I hope you try it & enjoy it as much as I did.
