The first time I tried a coconut macaroon was from a package that I picked up at Whole Foods to take on a long (very long) car ride on vacation to New York City. (I love NYC. I should have moved there after I graduated from college instead of spinning my wheels in Ohio. Anyway, enough of my issues and regrets. Let’s continue…) I fell in love immediately with these nuggets of deliciousness. Now, I have never been a fan of coconut growing up, but that was artificial processed crap coconut. I have found that real coconut is delicious and has the ability to make me happy. Funny how good REAL ingredients can be!
An FYI about these recipes is to use the type of shredded coconut recommended. If the recipe does not say what type of to use, then use finely shredded coconut (like this). Not that I know from personal experience that thick shredded coconut just does not work.
I hope you enjoy these easy to make recipes! However, if you do not feel like making macaroons, these Hail Merry Chocolate Macaroons or the Hail Merry Assortment Pack are a delicious alternative!Banana Bread Macaroons (courtesy of Empowered Sustenance) Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of Primal Palate) Creamy Coconut Chocolate Chip Macaroons (courtesy of Paleo Parents) Easy Egg Free Paleo Coconut Macaroon Recipe (courtesy of Grass Fed Girl) Homemade Caramel Sea Salt Hail Merry Macaroon Recipe (courtesy of Fitness In An Evolutionary Direction) Honey Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate Dipping Sauce (courtesy of Gourmande In The Kitchen) Lemon Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of Ditch The Wheat) Maple & Pumpkin Spice Macaroons + Maple, Cinnamon, and Toasted Vanilla Bean Glaze (courtesy of The Foodie Teen) Mexican Chocolate Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of The Urban Poser) No Bake Chocolate Macaroons (courtesy of Oh She Glows) Paleo Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of Planks, Love & Guacamole) Peppermint Chocolate Macaroons (courtesy of Against All Grain) Raw Chocolate Macaroons (courtesy of Tessa The Domestic Diva) Raw Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Macaroons (courtesy of Civilized Caveman Cooking) Raw Paleo Strawberry Macaroons (courtesy of Tessa The Domestic Diva) Tangy Coconut Lime Macaroons (courtesy of Primal Palate) Vanilla Bean Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of Mommypotamus) Vanilla Blonde Macaroons (Gluten Free, Raw, Vegan) (courtesy of Dandelions On The Wall) Vanilla-Strawberry and Raspberry Coconut Macaroons (courtesy of The Urban Poser)
