Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. Amazing. Best Ever. Fantastic. I can’t say enough.
If there was ever a recipe that I want everyone to try, because it’s insanely easy and incredibly delicious, it’s THESE best ever gluten free chocolate coconut macaroons.
And the best part? They are dipped in chocolate . . .
AND these babies only require 5 ingredients. 5 ingredients! No egg whites, no vanilla. . only 4 ingredients if you only use one kind of chocolate.
You simply start with sweetened shredded coconut and mix it with sweetened condensed milk. Then, you add some almond slices and – I used my cookie scoop– scoop out tablespoon sized coconut balls and place onto a prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
While your coconut macaroons are cooling, cut up your chocolate (I used a mix of semi-sweet and bittersweet) and melt it.
When the coconut macaroons are ready and have cooled a bit, simply dip them into the chocolate and let cool on parchment paper (I used my Roul’Pat non-stick countertop workstation mat). You can also pop the gluten free chocolate coconut macaroons into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to help the chocolate set faster.
Enjoy these gluten free chocolate coconut macaroons!!
Best Ever Coconut Macaroons
- 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup almond slices
- 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chopped
- 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate; chopped
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or your silicone non-stick baking mat. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk and the almonds.
- Using a cookie scoop or spoon, place tablespoon sized macaroons on your baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the macaroons are lightly golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
- While the macaroons are cooling, using a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chopped chocolate in :30 intervals until softened and melted. Whisk together until smooth. Dip in the coconut macaroons and set on parchment paper to allow the chocolate to set. You can also place the chocolate dipped macaroons in your refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes if desired. Enjoy!

<3 this brilliant theme, Alice. <3 your must-make macarons. And very much appreciate all your hard work in hosting this very fun SundaySupper party!
I am completely loving this five ingredients series… just read a couple of other contributor posts and I’m feeling inspired! So great to have easy recipes up our sleeves when guests drop around. These macaroons look DELICIOUS! Definitely drooling right now! x
Ohhh how I wish I could have a couple of these amazing looking macaroons right now! I love coconut and chocolate together… I think they make a fantastic combination!
Run DMT says
Those looks INCREDIBLE and so simple. Can the nuts be omitted? Would it still produce the same results or is it a necessary ingredient? Thank you for hosting #SundaySupper this week!
Marjory @ Dinner-Mom says
Perfect! Beautiful. I know a coconut lover who will loooove these! Thanks for hosting this fun event!

Thanks for hosting Alice. Your macaroons look oh-so-delicious. My dado’s favorite kind of cookie

Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet) says
This is my kind of baking: quick and simple…and includes chocolate! Thanks for hosting, and for letting me share one of your ice cream recipes in my Ice Cream and Frozen Treats slideshow.
I really dislike coconut, but I know my husband loves macaroons. I think I’ll be making these for him!
Thanks for hosting, this is such a fun theme and as been great building up my list of simple things to try with few ingredients.
I don’t think this recipe could get any easier! Thank you for being such fabulous host this week!

Gorgeous! And if you are allowed one more ingredient, try them with a tiny splash of almond extract. Sublime.
Ah, great idea Dorothy! I will have to try that next time!

These could literally be the greatest macaroons I have ever seen. Love the pics and hope to try them soon. So easy!
Haha, thank you, Matt! I hope you do give them a try! These are great for my friends who are allergic to eggs!
Nancy @ gottagetbaked says
I love your macaroons, Alice! They’re gorgeous and perfect dipped in the chocolate. What a fabulous theme. I’m so sorry I missed it! Now that you’ve hosted and survived, you’ll have to do it again so that I can participate. I hope you had a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Thanks so much lady! and re: hosting, I figured I hosted once this year. . so that should give me at least another 6 month window before I do it again, right?! Just kidding. . it was a lot of work but not as bad as I thought!
Brilliant recipe!!I love sweetened coconut and the chocolate coating just takes it to a new level 🙂 Thanks for hosting this exciting event Alice!
Thank you so much, Soni! My pleasure!
Golden beauties! I ADORE coconut macaroons, and they are even better when dipped in chocolate! I would have a hard time not eating the entire batch…
Thank you, Katie! This is why, after I ate 3 or 4, I had to give the rest away! 😛
If I wasn’t so allergic to coconut I’d be scarfing these!
Jamie@ Milk 'n' Cookies says
I absolutely love macaroons — they’re probably my all-time favorite cookie. I’ve never made them using sweetened condensed milk, though. And I’m sure those little almond slices must add some great texture. Will definitely have to try this recipe!
Hi Jamie! yes, I hope you do and yes the almonds are a great addition and add some texture!
These macaroons look delicious. Even more incredible, you’ve made these using 4 ingredients only. Makes it a far easier & delicious recipe than many out there for sure!
I’m also a choc coconut fiend 🙂
Thank you so much, Alice!! And these are great for my friends who are allergic to eggs!
Tammi @ Momma's Meals says
Wow you make it seem so easy!! I love these little pieces of sweetness! Great job hosting this week!!!
Allie | Baking a Moment says
Mr. Allie is a huge fan of coconut macaroons- pinning these for him! I love that you added almonds 😉
Thanks, Allie!! The almonds added some great texture! I hope you try these! 🙂
Miss Kim @ behgopa says
Makes me giddy to see the chocolate from my blog giveaway being used for something yummy! Love simple and delicious recipes.
Yes!!! Thank you again!!
Indre @ cupcakesnmiracles says
I made these with 2 ingredients (coconuts and condensed milk) and they are amazing! Going to post them soon 🙂
Courtney @ Neighborfood says
No way! I had no idea you could make macaroons with sweetened condensed milk. I can’t wait to try this!
I just made macaroons for Passover, but didn’t use sweetened condensed milk. It must add such an amazing thick/creaminess to the cookies…I will have to try that next time!
Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen says
These look amazing! I wish I had a plateful right now. They could be my dinner, you wouldn’t tell would you? Hehe Thanks so much for hosting this weeks Sunday Supper!
Dionne Baldwin says
Your macaroons are so beautiful! The recipe looks like something I should be able to make but I wonder why I’ve never made them before? Perhaps because deep down inside I know that I would eat most of them… 🙂
Connie | URBAN BAKES says
Your macaroons look amazing… then again, everything you make always look gorgeous! Thanks for hosting this #SS. It was a fantastic idea! Who knew there would be this many simple recipes 5 ingredients or less?!
