Got 10 minutes? Then all you need is four ingredients to make Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons. Tasty, easy, and as a bonus, gluten free!
Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons are the easiest cookies you can make:
So, this is just a quick little post to share a super simple cookie recipe. I threw a batch of these together for Easter because I wanted a gluten-free option on the dessert table. Some of my family members can’t eat gluten and I wanted to make sure they had a tasty dessert choice.
These are so quick to make I literally made the batter before the oven was even preheated.
I mean, the only thing better than coconut, is coconut with chocolate, right? Even non-bakers might want to try making Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons. Whip up egg whites and sugar, fold in coconut and mini chocolate chips, scoop and bake. That’s it.
The cookies bake up light and chewy. They keep for days in a cookie jar or covered container. And as I mentioned, they also happen to be gluten-free since there is no flour in the batter.
That’s it. Hope you like them. But, why wouldn’t you? Unless you’re one of those coconut haters…

Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons
- 3 large egg whites
- 3 oz granulated sugar (¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon table salt
- 14 oz sweetened coconut flakes
- 3 oz mini chocolate chips (½ cup)
- Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk 3 large egg whites until soft peaks form, slowly add 3 oz granulated sugar and whip to full peak. With the mixer running on low, add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and ⅛ teaspoon table salt to the egg whites. Fold 14 oz sweetened coconut flakes into the egg whites, making sure to break up any clumps. Fold in 3 oz mini chocolate chips.
- Scoop the dough into 1 ½" balls using a small cookie scoop or spoon.
- Bake for 10 minutes and then slide a second pan under the cookies to keep the bottoms from over-browning. Bake another 10 minutes until lightly golden brown and the cookies bounce back when you squeeze gently.
- Transfer the parchment with the cookies to a cooling rack.
