Coconut-Almond Macaroons Recipe Is Perfectly Poppable and Ready in Under 30 Minutes!

Our chewy, nutty cookie sensations are a breeze — and gluten-free too

When you’re looking for an easy dessert, macaroons are the perfect poppable treat. Often, people get confused between macaroons and macarons. We know both are delicious, but the spelling is the only similarity. One is made with coconut and condensed milk, while the other is a delicate French dessert that requires a little more skill in the kitchen. We’ll take the easier one, please! Our Coconut-Almond Macaroons are sweet and uncomplicated, so give them a try!

The main components in this delightful dessert are coconut (obviously!), egg whites and sweetened condensed milk. Sweetened condensed milk is a thicker dairy product that functions almost like a syrup to hold the other ingredients together. It also doubles as a sweetener since there’s no regular sugar in this recipe. These are light and airy, and if you want something extra, try dipping the bottoms in melted semi-sweet chocolate.
