Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

These little lumps of chocolatey goodness may not look like much, but they are totally amazing. They have lots of cocoa and honey. The beautiful thing is, these are totally grain-free, dairy-free, and refined-sugar-free. They're even made with coconut oil, which is an excellent addition to your regular diet.
