Coconut Macaroon Recipe

One of my favorite treats to make and give (usually with a tray of cookies) is coconut macaroons. The recipe is super simple and is always a hit with people. They are gluten free as well.

Coconut Macaroons

  • One 14-ounce package of sweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine sugar, egg whites, vanilla, and salt.
  • Using an electric beater, whisk ingredients until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Fold coconut into beaten mixture.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, place macaroons on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake macaroons for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Optional: Drizzle with melted chocolate once cooled.
