Almond Coconut Macaroons







I love the rich aromatic smell of roasted coconut wafting it’s way through the kitchen and what I love even more is that I have delicious lightly golden almond coconut macaroons cooking in the oven. Generously drizzle them with raw chocolate, double drizzle, or even dip the whole the macaroon in chocolate. It’s sweet, it’s aromatic, it’s coconutty, it’s covered in chocolate, it’s yummy and it contains all things HEALTHY (sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free)! Afternoon tea, anyone?!

    Is it best to use full cream/fat coconut milk or light coconut milk?
    I’m so excited to try this recipe tomorrow!

    Hi Kay,
    It’s best to use full cream/fat coconut milk, but light coconut milk also works perfectly fine as well.
    Enjoy! xx.

    Loved finding your page today! so many amazing recipes – have shared your page with so many of my friends already. I was just wondering if there is something else you could use instead of cranberries or if it would work if you didn’t use them? Thanks

    Very easy recipe to follow. Just finished baking a batch, However are the macaroons supposed to turn out soft (sponge cake like ) or more like a biscuit. Thanks

    I’ve tried these twice now and both times they crumble once in oven.
    Am I using too much or too little of something? I use hard coconut oil if that helps?
    Thanks claire

    I have tried this recipe because they look so good, but the mixture was quite soft/liquidy. Nothing like the picture.

    I used almond milk instead, and liquid coconut/sunflower oil.

    Would that be the issue ?

    Thank you !

    Hello!! Love your page! I tried this recipe but it came out really wet? Not sure why! I might give it another go soon!

    I had the same issue of the mixture being too wet and therefore not binding and resulting in crumbly macaroons!It also made less than 12..
