Recipes: Coconut Macaroons

Here’s to the weekend and if you are looking for something to indulge and pamper yourself, I found this coconut macaroons recipe which only require 4 simple ingredients! It is something fun to do it with your kids too in the kitchen.


  • 5 1/4 cups shredded or flaked coconut
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut and flour. This will help the sweetened condensed milk to stick to the coconut better.
  3. Add the vanilla extract to the can of sweetened condensed milk (it’s easier to mix it in this way).
  4. Then, mix in the sweetened condensed milk with the coconut.
  5. Refrigerate for 10 to 20 minutes.
  6. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a VERY greased baking sheet, parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  7. Bake 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
  8. Immediately remove from baking sheets.
  9. Store at room temperature.
  10. Optional: Drizzle with melted chocolate

Note: Contains gluten and lactose.
