Coconut Macaroons

Moist and chewy coconut macaroons are not just for Passover! They are pretty addicting, and naturally gluten free, so enjoy them any time of the year!


… and making macaroons couldn’t be easier, you simply combine coconut flakes, egg whites, and sugar, simmer on the stove, cool then bake in the oven.  If you want to get fancy you could add some slivered almonds or drizzle them with chocolate, but here’s a basic recipe.
