Coconut Macaroons (Crazy Good, Crazy Easy)

Estimated read time: Less than a minute

A family favorite.

We tried this after I picked up a store made batch and Wonderwoman Grace thought she could do better. She was right.

These are amazing.

(I feel slightly ridiculous offering you a recipe, but it’s way too good not to share, and I’d feel like a totally bad friend if I didn’t at least give you the opportunity to try these with your family. Also, Wonderwoman Grace tells me they’re crazy easy to make. So, don’t say I never shared good stuff with you. I promise I won’t do it too often haha!)


  • 1-1/3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min./batch (Makes a 18-20 or so, depending on your scoop.)


  • Combine coconut, sugar, flour and salt.
  • Whisk egg whites until frothy, then add with vanilla into batter.
  • Mix well.
  • Scoop spoonful onto greased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 325° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

We modified it a bit from the original to reduce sugar and make it more crispy, crunchy on the outside.
