These gluten free coconut macaroons are deliciously sweet and so easy to make! You will wonder why you didn’t make them sooner! These gluten free coconut macaroons are deliciously sweet and so easy to make! You will wonder why you didn’t make them sooner from no diets allowed When I made these coconut macaroon cookies for the first time I was amazed at how easy they are to whip up. All you do is combine all the ingredients (there are only three!) and then bake. It was amazing! I wanted to keep this recipe simple, but you could totally make these super fancy by dipping them in chocolate and adding some orange extract. Chocolate and orange go so good together (I even made scones with those flavor combos!) Or you could add vanilla extract and then melt down some Andes mints and dip them in there! Or you could keep them simple and just whip up the easy recipe above! The possibilities are endless! These gluten free coconut macaroons are deliciously sweet and so easy to make! You will wonder why you didn’t make them sooner from no diets allowed For this recipe I used unsweetened coconut flakes and you may be wondering why not use sweetened? I personally try to avoid sweetened coconut flakes because a lot of manufactures use propylene glycol to sweeten it and that’s a compound that is in antifreeze. These gluten free coconut macaroons are deliciously sweet and so easy to make! You will wonder why you didn’t make them sooner from no diets allowed Anyways, you won’t even miss the sweetness in these coconut macaroons- the sweetened condensed milk will take care of that! Since these coconut macaroon cookies are held together by the sweetened condensed milk they can be pretty sticky. However, they are oh so delicious and not to mention full of coconut flavor! I did notice after they were done baking that some of the condensed milk had come out of the macaroons and wasn’t the prettiest, but this was easily wiped away and no one was the wiser. These gluten free coconut macaroons are deliciously sweet and so easy to make! You will wonder why you didn’t make them sooner from no diets allowed I hope you enjoy these macaroons!
