Macaroons are naturally gluten-free and delicious, making them a great treat for celiacs and other folks keeping to a gluten-free diet. Many countries produce their own variations on macaroons but the traditional macaroons, originally from France or Italy, use almonds as the main ingredient.
St Julien’s macaroons are exceptionally yummy. Descending from a 17th century French recipe of crushed almonds, egg white, sugar and honey, they are made without any added nonsense. No flours, fillers, artificial colorings, flavorings or preservatives get anywhere near these tasty treats!
White Oaks Farm, the makers of these gluten-free goodies, is a family business and they have been baking their macaroons since 1974. As well as their honey-almond treat they also make chocolate-almond macaroons using rich Dutch cocoa. These are extremely addictive.
Soft and chewy, both the honey and cocoa macaroons are wonderful either cold or warmed. It’s hard to stop once you taste them and perfect with a warm cup of tea or a chilled glass of wine, depending on your mood.
St Julien’s macaroons can be purchased on their website and are available in 7.5oz or 15oz tubs.
