Crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle, classic coconut macaroons just so happen to be naturally gluten-free and Paleo-friendly. For a fun twist, stir some earthy matcha powder into the batter—not only does it balance out the delicate sweetness of the cookies, but it also turns them a lovely shade of light green.
