    Your macarons look wonderfully decadent! Love walnuts and with our many trees, I can certainly add them to some macarons!

  6. Wow! Great minds do think a like - used the same ingredients in my 'coconut & banana loaf' porridge. Yummy. Will be making these macaroons today. Makes a nice mini sweet treat.

  7. Good stuff - thanks for a sugar fix that's actually a good idea. I added a bit of sesame seeds because I used a whole small banana. They came out lovely!

    ~ P.S. Just found your blog and will be by again VERY soon! Nice photography, some easy treats to choose from, and food that makes my body and wallet happy (i.e. I don't have to get any odd, new ingredients I probably won't use elsewhere!).
