Gluten-Free Treat Idea: Rickaroons: Enjoy Your Sweet Treats without Guilt [Review + Giveaway]

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to try out some amazing macaroons by this place called, "Rickaroons" and I can't wait to tell you about it. It started by a guy going gluten-free who wanted a cookie too. I totally have been there! And he also wanted to make the gluten-free treat pretty healthy too. And that's not an easy balance to find. (Read more about how Rickaroon got started here!)

Rickaroons are a flourless experience, which I prefer in my gluten-free treats. I also am so loving the macaroon experience of these treats as well and I think it's something you can buy without feeling guilty at all!

I had the chance to try a variety of flavors - Chocolate Blonde, Mint to Be, Mocha and Megaroon. I have to say that of all the flavors I tried, my favorite is a toss up between Mocha and Mint to Be. I love the zing of coffee mixed in with the mocha flavor but I love the spark of mint mixed with the chocolate of Mint to Be. The texture to the "Rickaroons" are a little grainy but I think it matches the unique quality of the cookie.

One thing that makes me really enjoy these cookies are their simple ingredients. Here's what's in the Mint to Be -

 Shredded Coconut, Almond Butter, Coconut Palm Nectar, 70% Dark Chocolate (Cacao, Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquer, Cocoa Butter, Tapioca), Cacao, Coconut Oil, Vanilla, Peppermint Extract

Can I just say that I'm REALLY happy to see that there is 70% Dark Chocolate in this? I'm so happy about that. I love all the great ingredients here - that's HUGELY important to me. Rickaroons take great care in their ingredients too and you cann tell when you see which ingredients they choose and what is so healthy about them - read about it here.

Overall, the next time you are in the store, find these Rickaroons and buy them (find out if they are in a store near you I know you won't be disappointed, especially if you are already a fan of macaroons.  If you can't find it in a store near you, purchase now by following this link and you can buy them online.
