Not only are these 4 Ingredient Macaroons super easy to make, but they are also vegan, gluten free and paleo.  If you wanted to, you could drizzle a little melted chocolate over them.  My 3 Ingredient Chocolate Bar recipe would be great for that.

  1. In a food processor , combine all ingredients.

Keep these in the fridge or freezer. They should last a few weeks! Enjoy!

  1. I just discovered your site as I am planning for a new adventure with food to feel better! Anyway…I’m not a fan of maple syrup in a lot of things. Do you have a good substitute?

  2. I love the idea of only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make. Can’t beat it. Macaroons are the best, coconut being mine and the girls favorite! Better still, my husband (and I find a lot of men put themselves into this category) think they don’t like coconut when they really do. So maybe these will last more than a day!

      1. Is there a substitute for coconut oil in general? I love coconut but for some reason not the flavor of coconut oil. And it seems to be used as a binder in so many no bake recipes.

    1. No, EVOO won’t work because it does not harden in the frig. The only sub I can think of is butter, which, like coconut oil, is soft at room temp, but gets hard when cold.

  3. These macaroons are lovely. Unfortunately I couldn’t get them to stick together. I tried an extra tablespoon of coconut oil, water on my hands…. it just wasn’t happening. So, I packed them into a 8×8″ pan and voila! I did however use dessicated coconut as it was what I had on hand, maybe that was my issue? However, I cut them into bars and stored them in the freezer… we finished them off this evening with our tea. Thanks ever so much, I’ll make these again and again.

  4. I have everything but the vanilla beans. Do you think you could make it with vanilla extract or is it the crunchy beans that’s the winner? Also – the fewer the ingredients the better. Now I don’t have to plan a shopping trip for today’s mid afternoon snack. 🙂
