These are the *best* macaroons I have ever tried. Even non veg*ns have begged for this recipe. Make a batch of these when you want to show your carnivore friends how tasty vegan food can be.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bring coconut milk, maple syrup and salt to a boil.
  3. Whisk in flour.
  4. Cook over medium-low heat until thickened, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the coconut extract or vanilla as soon as it's done boiling.
  6. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  7. Using a cookie scoop (preferable) drop onto cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

The final result was amazing, but I docked a star because I had to change the recipe. I cooked the coconut milk mixture for longer than the suggested 3 minutes, but apparently that wasn't enough because when I added the other ingredients it was much too moist. Next time I'll try cooking it longer to thicken it more. However, I added 1.5 additional cups of coconut, 2 more teaspoons vanilla, and 1/3 cup more sugar (I used Sucanat, or unrefined cane sugar which is healthier and gives the cookie a delicious hint of molasses) until the consistency was workable. I fully expected a failure, but they were quite the opposite. Once cooled, I dipped half the top of each in orange-chocolate. They were absolutely stunning, according to a large group of non-vegans.
