Lazy Day Coconut Macaroons
2-Ingredient Coconut Macaroons are perfectly sweet, beautifully toasted on the outside and moist and chewy on the inside. With this lazy day recipe, I must have eaten about 20 and made another batch to take on our road trip. They are absolutely perfect for the coconut lover!
Lately things seem to be so much busier, even though we are taking more time to spend with our family. Maybe that is why work time seems busier. LOL. Needless to say I have been turning to a lot more quick and easy recipes. 5 ingredients or less is a pretty happy recipe for me these days.
When Chad told me he loves coconut, I decided to whip up these 2-ingredient Coconut Macaroon that I had seen all over social media a few years ago. All I could remember was that it was coconut and sweetened condensed milk. The rest I played with until I found what worked for us.
This is really one of the easiest cookie recipes I have ever made. Not to mention these cookies are down right addictive (see prior comment about eating 20 of them).
I am playing with reformatting our page to place the recipe higher up in the page and the related recipes at the bottom. What do you think? Do you like it this way, or prefer the way we have been doing it? Leave a comment below.
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

2-Ingredient Coconut Macaroons
SERVES 30 | ACTIVE TIME 10 Min | TOTAL TIME 25 Min
1 (14 ounce) bag sweetened coconut flakes
7 ounces sweetened condensed milk (about 1/2 of a 14 ounce can)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat Mat.
In a medium bowl combine add coconut. Then pour condensed milk over top. Mix with a spoon until the coconut and milk are completely mixed and all of the milk combines with the coconut.
Use a 1 tablespoon scooper. Scoop and then press the mixture into the scooper to make sure you get a well packed scoop. Place them on the baking pan about a finger apart. They will not spread so you can place them pretty close together.
Bake until the tops are golden brown, about 14-16 minutes. If the tops are not perfectly browned but the bottoms are, you can turn the broiler on and broil until the tops are perfectly browned, about 1-3 minutes.
*Do not walk away when broiling, you can go from golden brown to crispy in a flash.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes, if you can wait that long.
Serve and enjoy!
Silpat Baking Mat or Parchment Paper
1 tablespoon scoop
This recipe can be doubled. Simply use double the ingredients and 2 sheet pans. I bake one while I scoop the other, so the cooking time remains the same for each pan.
If your macaroons will not stay together check to see if you used sweetened condensed milk. Evaporated milk can NOT be used in this recipe.
Store in a resealable plastic bag or container, in the refrigerator.

Crockpot Candy is the easiest and most impressive homemade candy ever. A rich chocolaty, peanutty 4-ingredient recipe that you simply toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out. It doesn't get much easier than that!
3-Ingredient Brownies are moist, chewy, chocolaty and oh so fudgy. They come together in just 5 minutes. And the taste is spectacular. They are sweet enough to be a treat and not overly decadent. Definitely my new go to everyday brownie recipe.
4-Ingredient Peanut Blossom Cookies are billowy and soft, chewy and peanut butter-y. As if that isn't enough it's then topped with a Kiss. They are incredible! I can't keep my hands off of them. Just stir scoop and bake. This simple recipe will be ready to go in the oven before it is done preheating!
