Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

Hello… Today I may present you my Coconut Macaroon recipe. These are macaroons that succeed quickly and easily.  I love coconut macaroons because of the egg whites and the coconut. That is what makes them so special. It is really something different than a usual cookie!
My family loves the macaroons because they are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside… hmmm
For Christmas the coconut macaroons are a great pastry and complement the colorful biscuit plate wonderfully. Good baking success!

1. Coconut Macaroons, so fast and easy it goes

Our delicious ‘Kokosbusserl’, as they are also called in Austria, are quick and easy to prepare. The coconut macaroons become particularly beautiful when they are sprayed with a piping bag with a large star spout.

2. Egg Whites for Macaroons

No fear of preparing beaten egg whites. It works perfectly if you pay attention to a few things:
  1. First I advise you to sieve the icing sugar.
  2. It is important that the bowl and mixing sticks are clean and absolutely fat-free so that the egg whites become really firm.
  3. Beat your eggs individually. Make sure that no egg yolk gets into the egg white during separation.
  4. Use 1 pinch of salt when whipping.
  5. Beat your egg whites for 1-2 minutes. When your egg whites start to set, gradually let the icing sugar trickle while beating.
  6. Then continue beating your egg whites until they are stiff and the icing sugar has completely dissolved.

3. Variants for Baking

After cooling down you can dip the underside of the coconut macaroons in melted dark chocolate or simply put some chocolate on a spoon and pull over it. Of course, this also works just as well with white or milk chocolate. You can also vary the taste with flavours such as rum, vanilla or bitter almond oil.  At Christmas time a pinch of cinnamon or gingerbread spice fits perfectly. You can add ground almonds, chopped pistachios or chopped candied orange peel as ingredients if you like.

Coconut Macaroons with Nuts and Fruits

Preparation Time

30 Min.

Cook Time

15 Min.


100 g trail mix (or another fruit, nut mixture)
100 g coconut flakes
4 pc eggs, only the egg-white (whipped)
200 g powdered sugar/ icing sugar
30 g Flour (I use gluten-free flour)
1 pc abrasion and juice of 1 lemon (an organic lemon)
1 pinch Salt
30 pc wafers (it works for gluten-free macaroons even without wafers)


Crushed trail mix

Preheat the oven to 160° C. Find some nice fruits and nuts from the student food and put them aside. Finely chop the remaining student food in a blender.

Freshly whipped egg whites
Beat 2 pieces of egg whites with 2 pinches of salt, then beat with 2 tablespoons of icing sugar until stiff.

Beat the 4 eggs separately and separate the egg white from the yolk. Beat the pure egg whites with a pinch of salt using a hand blender at the highest speed. Add the icing sugar as you whip. Continue beating until a firm beaten egg white is obtained.

Coconut macaroons batter

Carefully fold in the finely chopped student food, coconut shavings, flour, lemon grater and juice with a large spoon. Do not stir too much to preserve the airy structure of the dough.

Coconut macaroons on wafer

Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Brush the wafers with the dough. Place the baking wafers coated with dough on the baking trays.

Place the dried fruits and nuts in the middle of the macaroon as decoration.

Put the macaroons in the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Switch off the oven for another 5 minutes and leave the macaroons in the oven for another 5 minutes with the oven door slightly open.
