Old Fashioned Less-Sweet Pecan Macaroons

I listen to the Splendid Table on our local public radio station.
Love that show!
Awhile back I heard a segment that included a recipe for coconut macaroons, and decided to save it for the inevitable sweet-tooth-attack.
Well, this morning I wasn’t really having a sweets craving, but … I wanted to bake something in case anybody with a sweet tooth came into the gallery today.
These are a really easy treat to make — leave out the pecans, or substitute a different kind of nut if you want.
They’re low-fat too!

No Nuts Granola

Homemade granola is one of those easy things you can make on a Saturday while you are doing household chores. You can make endless variations of granola if you make your own — and better still — you can make it many times healthier for you by adding just a minimal amount of oil or sweetener (or none at all) and leaving out the nuts if you have someone with a nut allergy.
