Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons

These keto coconut macaroons dipped in dark chocolate are so light and delicious. They are the perfect treat for the festive season! Although they are not as chewy as regular coconut macaroons, they are absolutely divine. Toasting the coconut is optional but highly recommended. Just a few minutes in the oven will enhance the flavour.

I kept these macaroons simple by omitting the traditionally used condensed milk - which gives it the chewy texture - but if you prefer them chewy, add ½ to ¾ cup of my keto & paleo condensed milk and skip the sweetener.

  4. Using a spoon and your hands, create 22-24 small macaroons. Place them on the baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Use two trays if needed. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons
  5. Bake the macaroons at 300 F/ 150 C (fan assisted) for 10 minutes, and then turn the temperature down to 130 C/ 265 F and bake for 20 more minutes.
  6. Remove the macaroons from the oven and let them cool down on a cooling rack. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons
  7. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water over a medium heat. Once completely melted, remove from the heat and set aside to cool down. The chocolate should not be hot when you use it for coating.
  8. Decorate the macaroons by dipping the bottom parts in melted dark chocolate. Place them back on the tray. Drizzle any leftover chocolate on top of the macaroons. Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until set.
    Tip: To help the chocolate solidify quickly, the melted chocolate should be cooled to room temperature before decorating. Placing the macaroons in the freezer for 10 minutes will also speed up the process. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons
  9. The macaroons can be stored at room temperature for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Mine turned very dry... any suggestions?

Hi Adelina, they are not meant to be moist but if you prefer them that way, you can reduce the baking time by 5 minutes. I hope this helps!

Hi Patrick, they are not supposed to rise a lot as there is no raising agent.

These are FABULOUS!!! I’m going to make a triple batch to give away for holiday cookies. No one will know they are sugar free! The next batch I will be generous with the chocolate. So good! Thanks

Is shredded coconut the same as coconut flakes?

Coconut flakes are bigger than shredded coconut. I suppose you can pulse them a few times in a food processor and the effect will be very similar.
