Homemade Dehydrated Macaroons (3 kinds!)

Oh these are good! My friend Leslie lovingly made these for me once and since then, I've been hooked! I don't have a dehydrator, but I am seriously considering getting one after tasting these! 

They are homemade macaroons. Addictive, chewy, insanely delicious and HEALTHY!
Thank you Leslie for making a fresh batch today that we could feature on our blog! 


The orange chocolate ones are good (they taste just like the chocolate oranges that come out at Christmas time), but he lemon macaroons are my favourite! 


My 16 month old would BARELY let us even take a picture before grabbing one off the plate. 
But we understood, because they are pretty much irresistible!
