Coconut macaroons sweetened with brown rice syrup

Many cookie recipes can benefit from the use of brown rice syrup, a natural sugar substitute. As a low-glycemic sweetener that has the consistency and taste of butterscotch, brown rice syrup is a first choice sweetener for any recipe that requires both a sweetener and a binder - as in cookies, granola bars, or energy bars.

If you love coconut, you’ll love this recipe for moist, chewy macaroons, sweetened with rice syrup and liquid stevia.
