I've found a beautiful (and simple!) looking recipe for coconut lime macaroons but it calls for blond cane sugar, which I haven't seen in any of my local supermarkets in the UK, nor have I ever used it in my baking.

Is anyone acquainted enough with either blond cane sugar or macaroons to suggest an alternative - especially a healthier alternative than straight up sugar?

Sucanat or turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw) would be pretty indistinguishable from blond cane sugar. One of them might actually even be the same thing under a different name.
