Instead of going into my usual spiel about how you should not make any substitutes, let me make this short and quick and free from “no’s”! 😉 Use this 4 Ingredient Paleo Coconut Macaroons Recipe instead. I created this recipe specifically around almond flour, so you’ll know exactly what amount to use. 😉
Tools for the Best Gluten Free Macaroons!
- Small Coconut Flakes: it’s very, very important that you use small coconut flakes in this recipe. If you use large coconut flakes, shreds or chips, your macaroons will bake into flat, spread-out cookies. This is the brand I use and love!
- Food Processor: this is the exact food processor that I use to make everything. It blends like a champ, has lasted through 1,000s of recipe tests, and is super easy to clean and use. I loved it so much that I bought another, just in case they stop making it. Lol.
- Coconut Flour: for years, I’ve been asked if there was a grain-free, nut-free alternative to the usual flours in coconut macaroons. I thought, what better flour to use than coconut flour? This simple, healthy ingredient absorbs wet ingredients like woah, and works beautifully in this recipe.
- Where to Buy Ingredients: Small Coconut Flakes (do not use large flakes or chips) | Coconut Flour | Coconut Oil | Pure Maple Syrup
