Easy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Servings: Approximately 12 macaroons
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: Approximately 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Shredded Coconut: 1 3/4 cups (unsweetened)
  • Condensed Milk: 1/2 cup
  • Egg Whites: 2 large
  • Vanilla Extract: 1/4 teaspoon

Equipment:

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or silicone baking mat
  • Mixing bowls
  • Hand mixer or whisk
  • Spoon or cookie scoop

Instructions:

1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent the macaroons from sticking.

2. Prepare the Batter:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded coconut and condensed milk. Stir until they are well mixed. This mixture will give your macaroons their sweet and coconutty flavor.

3. Add Egg Whites:

  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer or a whisk until they form stiff peaks. This might take a few minutes, but it’s essential for the macaroons’ structure.

4. Fold in Egg Whites:

  • Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the coconut and condensed milk mixture. Use a gentle folding motion to preserve the fluffiness of the egg whites. This step ensures that your macaroons are light and airy.

5. Add Vanilla Extract:

  • Stir in the vanilla extract to enhance the flavor of your macaroons. This step is optional but adds a lovely aroma.

6. Form Macaroons:

  • Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. You can shape them into small mounds, as they won’t spread much during baking.

7. Bake:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the macaroons turn golden brown on the outside.

8. Cool and Enjoy:

  • Allow the macaroons to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, they are ready to enjoy!

9. Optional Drizzle (If Desired):

  • For an extra touch, you can melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the cooled macaroons. This adds a delightful chocolatey contrast to the coconut flavor.

Your homemade coconut macaroons are now ready to be savored! These sweet and chewy treats are perfect for sharing with family and friends or indulging in your coconut cravings.

Notes

  • Make sure to use unsweetened shredded coconut for this recipe. Sweetened coconut can make the macaroons overly sweet.
  • Allow the egg whites to come to room temperature before beating them. Room temperature egg whites whip up better and create a lighter texture.
  • Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This means the peaks should hold their shape when you lift the beaters. Properly whipped egg whites provide structure to the macaroons.
  • When combining the egg whites with the coconut mixture, use a gentle folding motion. This helps maintain the fluffiness of the egg whites, resulting in light and airy macaroons.
  • Get creative with your macaroons by adding chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried fruit to the mixture for different flavors and textures.
