Coconut Macaroons Recipe




Coconut Macaroons are small cookies made from coconut. The name of these cookies came from the Italian word “Maccarone which means paste. Typically these are made with egg white and almond flour. But with time almond flour got replaced with coconut and/or other nuts.

As much as these coconut macaroons are delicious, there is an interesting story too behind these cookies. The traces of Macaroons are dated back to the 9th century in an Italian monastery. In 1533, the monks came to France and joined a pastry chef. Sooner Sister Marguerite and Sister Marie-Elisabeth joined the monks in France. They started baking Macaroons to earn their livelihood. Later, they became famous as the “Macaroon sisters”.

Italian Jews adopted these Macaroons because of the absence of leavening agent and flour. They could eat these Coconut Macaroons during the eight-day observation of Passover.

Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Keep the oven for preheating at 180 °C.  Line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, add coconut, condensed milk, and almond essence. For this recipe, I have used Homemade condensed milk that was without refined sugar. But you can use regular market one.

Mix everything until condensed milk and coconut are completely mixed. The mixture will be little sticky but not wet.

Note: Do not add milk or any other liquid.

Divide the mixture into 9 equal portions. Gently shape them into a rounded mound to form classic macaroon shape.

Place them on a baking tray by leaving some space in-between.

Bake in the preheated oven at 180 °C for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

When baked, remove from the oven and transfer baked coconut macaroons on a cooling rack. Allow them to cool.

Personally, I like to have these coconut macaroons while they are still warm, I like their chewy texture.

  1. Hi Sonia,

    Tried these and came out quick and lovely. Only one point though, the flavoring essence needs to be added depending on the brand. I used Ossoro’s and it was just too strong, almost like detergent when i used 1/4 tsp. Maybe you can update the recipe to say that flavoring essence can be as per the brand and taste of the person baking it. I tried the next batch without essence and it was just yummy.

  2. Thanks dear for your easy and tasty recipes. In microwave how much time it takes not in convention mode just in micro please must reply
