These are really good. Glutenfree baking can be tricky but this recipe is easy and delicious.I did make a few minor substituions. I used half the sugar plus stevia powder and they were plenty sweet! I whipped the egg whites to soft peaks . I added some crushed almond slices to the coconut mixture. I used Pamala's GF pancake mix for the flour and vanilla for flavoring. I dont have parchment but my macaroons did not stick at all to the sheet. I used a small ice cream scoop to shape them . Even with all my changes I think they came out perfect! This is a keeper.
