Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroons
These 2 ingredient Coconut Macaroons are the perfect dessert for so many occasions! They are unbelievably easy to make and you really can whip them up at a moment’s notice!
My favorite thing about these coconut macaroons is their texture. They are crunchy and firm on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. And if you’re a coconut lover like me, you know the deliciousness of coconut in each of those ways!
My daughter and I have spent a good deal of time discussing why there seem to be several different kinds of macaroons. French macaroons are incredibly popular today (the ones with the hard shell and creamy middle that look a little like Pac-man), but when I was little, I’d never heard of those. Coconut cookies macaroons were an everyday staple in my mom’s house – and that was the only macaroon there was!
Whether you are looking for desserts for Passover or Easter, last minute guests or a bake sale, you couldn’t ask for an easier recipe. With only two ingredients, you’ll end up with about 60 macaroons. They go far!
This coconut macaroon recipe is egg-free, nut-free and gluten-free, so a great dessert option for many dietary restrictions.
How do I make coconut macaroons?
1 can sweetened condensed milk 14oz
1 package unsweetened coconut 14oz
Take out a large bowl and mix both of the ingredients together.
Let them sit in the bowl on the counter for 15 minutes so that the coconut has time to absorb some of the milk.
While waiting, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You don’t have to use parchment paper, but it will keep the bottoms of your macaroons from burning.
Using a tablespoon or a large spoon, scoop a heaping tablespoon of coconut onto the baking sheet. Pieces of coconut will be sticking out on the sides, so do your best to mold each scoop into a semi-circle.
Bake them in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until the macaroons are nicely toasted on the top.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for about half an hour. Serve and enjoy!
