As a coconut lover, I’ve tried dozens of recipes for coconut macaroons recipes over the years — be it for the holidays or for friends who eat gluten-free. These are my favorite. Chewy and moist on the inside, crisp and golden on the outside, they’re delicious plain but even more irresistible dipped in dark chocolate. They also keep well for days, making them the perfect treat to bake ahead or give away during the holidays.

What You’ll Need To Make Coconut Macaroons

how to make coconut macaroons

The key ingredient in this recipe is sweetened condensed milk, a canned milk product from which water has been removed and sugar has been added. It’s sticky-sweet and makes the best macaroons. Many recipes call for it but, in my experience, they all have the same problem: too much liquid, which causes the sweet batter to pool around the edges of the macaroons and burn in the oven.

This is because recipe developers want to keep their recipes neat and tidy with one whole bag of coconut and one full can of sweetened condensed milk. After all, it’s annoying to have leftover sweetened condensed milk; there’s not much you can do with it except add it to your coffee. For this recipe, you’ll use just shy of one can so you’ll have to sacrifice some sweetened condensed milk, but your macaroons will be perfect.

How To Make Coconut Macaroons

Begin by combining the coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla.

Mix until well combined.

If you’d like to dip the macaroons in chocolate, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, stopping to stir every 30 seconds, until just smooth and creamy. (Alternatively, melt in a double boiler over simmering water.) Dip the bottoms of the macaroons in the chocolate and return to the lined baking sheets.

Refrigerate for about 10 minutes, or until the chocolate is set. That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!

Coconut Macaroons

Soft and chewy on the inside, crisp and golden on the outside — these are the perfect coconut macaroons.

Servings: 26 macaroons
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 14-oz bag sweetened flaked coconut, such as Baker's Angel Flake (see note)
  • 7/8 cup sweetened condensed milk (see note below on measurement)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, best quality such as Ghirardelli, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Set two oven racks near the center of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Use a large rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.
  4. Using a mini ice cream scoop or two spoons, form heaping tablespoons of the mixture into mounds on the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for 23 to 25 minutes, rotating the pans from top to bottom and front to back, until the tops and edges are golden. Let cool on the pans for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. If dipping the macaroons in chocolate, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at medium power, stopping and stirring at 30 second intervals, until just smooth and creamy. (Alternatively, melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water.) Dip the bottoms of the macaroons in the chocolate, letting any excess drip back into the bowl, and return to the lined baking sheets. Place the macaroons in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. The cookies keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for about a week.
  6. Note: There is a lot of variability in coconut depending on the brand you purchase. For the best results, I recommend Baker's Angel Flake (see package in the first picture on this page).
  7. Note: 7/8 cup = 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons
  8. Note: Make sure to use parchment paper (NOT wax paper) on the baking sheets. The macaroons will stick to wax paper.
  9. Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The macaroons can be frozen for up to 3 months. (If you plan to dip them in chocolate, wait until you thaw them to do that.) Let them cool completely and store in an airtight container separating layers with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Before serving, remove the cookies from the container and let them come to room temperature.

  • After watching GBBS I wanted to find a recipe similar to Prue’s coconut macaroons, but in American measurements. In order to get Prue’s more cake-like macaroon I pulsed the coconut in a food processor for about 10 seconds and added 2-3 TB of white flour (Prue’s calls for rice flour, but white flour works just as well). I then substituted the tsp vanilla for 1/2 tsp almond extract, as I like the combination of almond and coconut flavors. They came out great!! I’ll try adding some chopped roasted almonds some time, and maybe chopped maraschino cherries another time. Great recipe!

  • I made these yesterday, and while they are delicious, I did experience some pooling at the base of my macaroons. I tried to research and troubleshoot, and one website suggested lowering the oven temp, but that didn’t help. Any suggestions? I followed the recipe exactly, so I’m not sure why they came out a little runny on the pan. Variance on egg whites? Maybe if I weighed in grams it would be better? Like I said, baked up great and I covered the pooling at the base in chocolate anyway, but I want to get them perfect!
    Thank you! 🙂

    • Hi Rachel, A little pooling around the bottom is normal, but the macaroons may be a little runny on the bottom if the egg whites aren’t stiff enough. Make sure you beat those egg whites to a stiff peak. Hope that helps!

    • I made them with unsweetened coconut (“Let’s do…organic” brand) and they turned out yummy. Definitely the saltiness came through more and it was less sweet than I would get at local bakeries. But it was very similar to the level of sweetness in coconut mochi.

  • I’d been making the Ina Garten recipe for years which is very similar and I didn’t think could be improved upon, but Jenn’s little touches take them over the top! Not using the full can of condensed milk makes all the difference and means my macaroons no longer puddle and dipping them in chocolate… omg, amazing! Perfect recipe for Christmas, Easter, in fact, easy to make quickly any time of year because the ingredients can be kept on hand and they are also gluten-free, major win!

  • I’ve been making these macaroons every year over the holidays, and they are always a big hit! They are easy to make and addictively delicious. The chocolate and coconut pairing is divine. And since they are naturally gluten free, it’s a great dessert to have for anyone on a gluten free or wheat free diet.

And one recipe let’s you do both!

  • My family gobbled these up fast. They are quick and simple with not too many ingredients. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the strong taste of the sweetened condensed milk which I did not care for. It did not bother the rest of the family. I would love a recipe that makes these without that ingredient or some substitute. Overall, great. The chocolate makes it even better. I ended up dipping them sideways because they were not sticking as well on the bottom. Same great taste.

  • For Christmas 2020 I decided to shake up my usual baking repertoire and try out some different recipes. I already had all the ingredients for this recipe so tried a batch. They were a huge hit in our household, so I froze some to send in gift packages … but they didn’t last long enough! I bought enough stuff for one more batch but ended up making 3 more batches because after the first shipments got rave reviews I had people asking when their box would arrive! I mentioned to my husband that a designated scoop for baking would be nice and on Christmas Day one of my gifts was a collection of 3 different sized scoops that I have now set aside strictly for baking purposes. The smallest is my preference for these macaroons and it makes the process even easier and faster. This recipe will remain in the Christmas goody rotation for some years to come.

  • The tips such as how to set up the oven, rotate pans, use higher-quality chocolate, and measure 7/8 cup of condensed milk were really helpful in getting a good result the very first time. These macaroons truly are perfect. I’ve made them twice now. Everyone loved them.

  • Made your version for the first time and they are perfection! I did add some orange zest and used bittersweet chocolate for dipping, plus a little drizzle on top.
    Was wondering if folks that had issues may have used extra large, vs. large egg white. Certainly the size difference can add extra, unnecessary moisture. Something to consider.
    Once again, your recipe and blog are outstanding! Simply wonderful
