These coconut macaroons are the easiest cookies you can make with just 3 ingredients and 30 minutes. Made with desiccated coconut and condensed milk these are vegetarian, eggless, gluten-free, and can be nut-free too. Ideal for a last-minute tea party, cookie platter, or gift to friends.
Preheat oven at 170 °C/ 340 °F / Gas Mark 3Tip - make sure the oven is well preheated before you put the cookies in or they will spread too much.
In a mixing bowl add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and salt.Tip - condensed milk already has vanilla extract so you can omit it. Alternatively, you can also add ¼ tsp coconut extract.
Followed by the dedicated coconut and almond meal (or coconut flour) - Combine well. Tip - at first the mixture will be wet but as the coconut absorbs moisture it will get drier so do not add more coconut or flour.
