King Arthur’s Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons


King Arthur’s Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons


  • Generous 5 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened coconut cream; one 16-ounce can
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut flavor, optional
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk powder, optional


  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup or honey

Prepartion Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with parchment
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut, coconut cream, salt, and coconut flavor, stirring till thoroughly combined
  3. Add the coconut milk powder, stirring to combine
  4. Drop the sticky mixture in ping pong-sized balls (about 1 1/2″) onto the prepared baking sheets. It helps to use a tablespoon cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop here. For best results, pack the coconut mixture into the scoop; each ball should weigh about 1 ounce. You can space the balls fairly close together on the baking sheet; they only need about 3/4″ to 1″ between them
  5. Bake the macaroons for about 10 minutes; they won’t brown. You may see the merest hint of brown on top
  6. Remove from the oven, and cool completely on the baking sheet
  7. To make the coating, heat the chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup until the chips are very soft. A microwave oven works well, as does a saucepan set over very low heat.
    Dip half of each cooled macaroon into the chocolate. Set the macaroons back on the baking sheet, and allow the chocolate to set completely before serving

To store, place in one layer in a closed container. They’ll keep for 2 or 3 days, but will gradually become less moist as they sit.

Yield: 33 Gluten Free Macaroons
