Coconut Macaroons recipe | Sweet Treat tea time snack | Flavour Diary

simple easy coconut macaroons recipe

Today's recipe is an incredibly simple to make tea time sweet treat called Coconut Macaroons.These are crispy and golden on outside and moist and soft inside.
These are irresistible to stop at one but you can bake big batch and store for few days, and these are one of the best homemade gift to passover.
If you are coconut lover and have a sweettooth then these are yum for gobbling them at any time of the day.
This month MFB challenge was to cook a recipe from the blog "This Muslim Girl Bakes". She has got very lovely recipes in her blog with step by step pics and beautiful photography.
As her blog represents bakes, i just wanted to try baked products and It was hard for me to decide which one to choose from her recipes but finally decided to do Coconut macaroons. I tweaked the recipe a bit, i was out of stock of Almond flakes so i used desiccated coconut instead.
I totally forgot about the challenge and this is was last moment prep. Because of time constraint, I skipped the decoration too. But the recipe turned out super yummy and my elder one gobbled up few before her Gymnastic class and she said they tasted similar to store bought one. I was really happy that i did visit her recipe and tried it.
