Many coconut macaroon recipes ask you to make a meringue first, then fold in the dried coconut.  I’ve opted for an easier method that gives a lighter, more coconutty result and doesn’t involve making a meringue.  My recipe below is adapted from the one on the back of the Baker’s flaked coconut bag.  Since our family has enjoyed this recipe for many years, I thought I would share this really easy method with you all.

Ingredients

  • 5 1/3 cups sweetened coconut flakes (396g)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar (127g)
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.  Line two 11×17-inch cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Use your hands to combine the coconut flakes, sugar, flour, and salt in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.
  3. Stir in the egg whites and vanilla extract until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  4. Drop the mixture in rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared trays, spacing the macaroons about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake each tray one at a time for 15 minutes at 325 F, then check them.  Bake for another 3-4 minutes, until the macaroons are nicely browned.  Turn the oven temperature down to 300 F if they are browning too quickly.
  6. Let the macaroons cool on the parchment paper for a few minutes, then peel them off the paper and let them cool completely before serving.

Notes

Store leftover macaroons in an airtight container on the counter.
