Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons are elegant, yummy and really easy to make! 


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup good quality maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • round 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips {I use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips}
  • 3 large egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 325 {F}
  2. In a mixing bowl add in your shredded coconut, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and chocolate chips and mix it all together well.
  3. In a seperate bowl beat your egg whites until they’ve reached the “stiff peaks” stage. You can either do this by hand, with a stand mixer or a hand mixer!
  4. Slowly combine your beaten egg whites with your coconut mixture. I’m talking a scoop of egg whites into the mixture, fold it in and then add more egg whites until it’s all combine. Be super careful not to over mix – you don’t want to mix out the fluffyness you’ve worked so hard to achieve!
  5. Once it’s just combine use either a small cookie scoop {I used my usual #70 cookie scoop} or a teaspoon to scoop your macroons onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. You want to work somewhat quickly so you don’t give your batter time to deflate at all.
  6. Bake in your oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top and edges are golden brown and the macroon is set. Let cool and enjoy!
