Picture of Homemade Coconut Macaroons

In this instructable I will show you how to make coconut macaroons. This coconut Macaroons recipe is very easy to make and they are gluten free. I get asked from time to time to make more gluten-free treats so here we go. Someone asked me to make more things with coconut too, so I picked coconut macaroons. If you like coconut you have got to try these homemade treats. If I can do it you can do it, let's get baking! :)

This is the recipe that I used to use back when I was a teenager in the early 60's. It is pretty
fool proof. Of course I didn’t fancy it up with chocolate. We lived in Central Ontario, Canada, Snow Belt Country. Had them with Hot Chocolate (delivered from the farm, with the cream on top) when coming in after being out in the winter cold. :D
Getting me thinking Matt, about the recipes I used to use. None of them particularly health by today's standards LOL Time to get back in the kitchen for practice, see if I can make them a bit Doctor Friendly, before Christmas.
hahaha that is awesome David!
