Easy Vegan Holiday Season: Day 6

Post by Aine Davis

Who doesn’t love macaroons? My belly…that’s who! Macaroons were my favourite, favourite, favourite dessert. Unfortunately, regular macaroons are chock-full of egg white. Yuck! 

So, I took it upon myself to create my own! And after many trials and tribulations, I present to you: the most delicious and delectable vegan macaroon recipe I have to offer.
