Nut-Free Sunflower Seed Coconut Macarons

Made for my friend Shulie and her son who has tree nut allergies. Dessicated coconut doesn't grind up as fine as nuts so these have a bit of texture. Almost like a love child between French macarons and American macaroons ^_^. Story and recipe on my blog.

 

No idea why I chose this color background and should stop taking photos after 4 pm...couldn't get the color balance to look quite right. Any ideas what color background might've been better?
