Happy Spring! Ahh… doesn’t it feel good to just say that? According to my planner, which I have right next to me, the first day of Spring was March 20. Oh, happy, happy day!
Update, I made a lemon version of these and they’re getting rave reviews already. 🙂 Check out my paleo vegan lemon coconut macaroons! 🍋
The thing is, it’s been soooo frosty and cold in Boston. Yeah, it for sure hasn’t been the worst of the worst, but it definitely is cold as all get out compared to California. Even after a decade of moving back and forth from coast to coast, I still can’t get used to snow and such.
But there is one upside to all this frostiness.The second it’s over, everyone starts dancing and laughing through the streets. Okay, that’s probably just happening in my mind, but still!
Every day the sun warms my skin, every day we get to go out in shorts and flip flops… every day we get to not wear balaclavas is a GOOD day!
And so, without further ado, let’s kick off SPRING with this irresistible 4 Ingredient Paleo Coconut Macaroons Recipe!!! Let’s kick of Easter with these coconut yummies and a few others (just for good measure):
- 5 Ingredient No Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars
- Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
- 3 Ingredient Homemade KIND Coconut Almond Bars
- Coconut Chocolate Chip Vegan Ice Cream
Back to what I was saying… 😉 Gather ‘round, because these coconut macaroons are OFF THE CHARTS good. Like, I had no choice but to yell “off the charts” GOOD. They’re the best coconut macaroons I’ve ever had.
I nervously and excitedly brought a few of these over to my sister Jenny’s house the other day. She is THE connoisseur of junk food, sweets, and all things indulgent. So if she approves of something, I know it can stack up to the traditional faves/classics we all grew up with. Case in point, her previous favorite recipes of mine: my best vegan brownies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and homemade crunch bars.
Anywho, the first thing she literally did with the macaroons was slice into one of them. She insisted on slicing one so she could save some for her little one, Dylan aka PB, who doesn’t like his food being pre-bitten into (like, who doesn’t?!?) 😉 She immediately said, “the texture is good. Firm and dense like a macaroon should be.” (I know, she loves reviewing things).
She took one bite, with the blankest, most neutral face ever (to keep things honest and fair). Then, immediately LOST it. Her eyes grew big like saucers and practically popped out of her head. Her mouth dropped open, then closed immediately so as to not lose even one bite of coconut macaroon.
Then, she exclaimed, “WOW. These taste like the REAL THING.”
To Jenny, the “real thing” means the classics. And the classics = YES. All of the yes’s!!
She then immediately squirreled away the remainder of the paleo coconut macaroons and proclaimed, “PB’s not getting any of these!!” 😂
So, let me tell you in the clearest, firmest way possible: These are the BEST coconut macaroons ever. The best vegan coconut macaroons ever. The best paleo coconut macaroons ever. The best ALL the things macaroons ever. And I hope you try them. 🙂
Speaking of wonderfully tasty things you need to try, you have to give these paleo chocolate coconut candy clusters a whirl. Trust me, you will be so happy you did.

- 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
- Paleo Vegan Chocolate Coconut Truffles
- 1 ¼ cups unsweetened small coconut shreds *
- ¼ cup finely ground, blanched almond flour
- 3 tablespoons solid coconut oil**
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
- Add all ingredients (coconut, almond flour, oil and maple syrup) to a food processor. Here are the gluten-free small coconut flakes that I use--you must use small coconut flakes in this recipe, about the size of sprinkles--see the Video above the recipe for visuals. Using large coconut flakes will result in flat, spread-out cookies.
- Blend until you get a thick and sticky mixture that holds together, with smaller, but still noticeable coconut pieces. If any maple syrup remains at the bottom of the processor, fold into dough until well mixed.
- Using a 1.5-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop firmly packed balls of coconut mixture. Drop onto the prepared baking sheet, making sure to space balls evenly apart--they will spread.
- Bake for 12-16 mins, until golden around the edges and slightly golden on top. Mine took 15 mins for large ones. Place baking sheet onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 30 mins-1 hour. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
Try the LEMON version here: Lemon Coconut Macaroons (Paleo, Vegan, GF).
- **Solid coconut oil is best for this recipe. Using melted coconut oil will result in smaller macaroons.
- You can easily double the batch to make more cookies! For smaller, 1-tablespoon cookie scoop sized cookies, bake for 11-13 mins.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month at room temperature. If freezing, store in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for up to 2 months. Allow to thaw for 15 minutes before enjoying.
- Nutrition Info: is an estimate calculated based on 15 total macaroons (halfway between the medium and large macaroons).
