Sticky Coconut & Almond Macaroons

Course: Dessert
Servings: 16 cookies
Calories: 177kcal


  • cups granulated sugar , divided use
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free corn syrup
  • 7 ounces (200 grams) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ounces (50 grams) coarsely ground almonds or almond meal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  • In a small pot, combine 1 cup sugar, water and 1 tablespoon corn syrup. Heat on medium, stirring regularly, until the mixture comes to a boil and all of the sugar dissolves.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the shredded coconut, almond meal and salt.
  • Add the egg whites, remaining ½ cup sugar and vanilla to a medium sized bowl. Whisk vigorously until foamy, 1-2 minutes.
  • With a wooden spoon, stir the egg whites into the dry ingredients until combined.
  • Use your hands to gently shape the “dough” into balls about 1½ inches in diameter. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. The “dough” will be very wet and sticky.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown all over.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet. They will still be quite fragile while they are hot, but will firm up a bit and transfer easily once cooled.


Transportation Suggestions: Store in a rigid container with a lid to keep the macaroons from getting crushed.
