Recipe by KelBel
A nice spin on the traditional coconut macaroon. Use whatever dried fruit mixture you like.

I was looking for diabetic-friendly, low-carb treats and I've always liked macaroons. These are good; I've made them a couple times. I usually use xylitol instead of sugar and put craisins and pecans in them. Thanks for posting.
