    Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroon Cookies Recipe

    Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroon Cookies Recipe

    Over the holiday season, I added some sinfully delicious coconut macaroon blossom cookies to my Christmas cookie repertoire. Some of my favorite recipes are blossom cookies including my peanut butter Kiss cookies and butter pecan blossom cookies, so the new coconut blossom cookies were a huge hit. For Valentine’s Day this year, my kiddos and I are heading to a homeschool party. I modified my blossom recipe to make some equally delicious chocolate chip coconut macaroons. The recipe is gluten-free and egg-free. However, you can also use regular all-purpose flour instead of gluten-free to make a conventional macaroon.

    Ingredients

    • 2/3 cup of all-purpose gluten-free flour
    • 14 ounces of shredded coconut
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    • 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk
    • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    • 12 ounces of chocolate chips

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    3. Combine the gluten-free flour, coconut, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir thoroughly.
    4. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract to the coconut mixture. Stir thoroughly.
    5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
    6. Drop tablespoon balls onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. The cookies do not spread so place the balls fairly close together. Pat down any stray coconut shreds to prevent burning.
    7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the bottoms turn slightly golden.
    8. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
    9. Store the cooled gluten-free chocolate chip coconut macaroon cookies in an airtight container.
