Chewy Coconut Macaroons

Gluten Free Macaroons

This chewy coconut macaroons recipe will give you some delicious sweet gluten-free coconut macaroons, which are great nibbles for the game or just as a snack. These are fantastic if you love coconut.

They are quite filling, so be warned, if you eat them before your dinner you may lose your appetite!

In another post about my almond macaroon recipe, I talk about the wonderful St.Agnes bakery in Cornwall. Their macaroon recipe was wonderful and to this day I am not sure whether they were just almond macaroons or whether they also included coconut.

In any case, I have not been able to copy them, so instead have two different macaroon recipes, one coconut one and one almond one. I shall have to return there one day to try them again and see if I can work out their secret recipe.

How to store chewy coconut macaroons

These macaroons can be best stored in an air-tight container to keep them moist the longest. We tend to use Tupperware boxes as they are just what we have in the cupboard and are always properly airtight. But Rubbermaid or something similar is also fine of course.

Our Tupperware boxes just seem to last forever (these coconut cookies don’t though!!)

The coconut does not need to be sweetened for this recipe as the condensed milk will provide sufficient sweetness.

As with our old fashioned fudge recipe we all fight to lick the last bits out of the can of condensed milk in this household!
