Cornflake Macaroons

11 Feb


I know, I know. Coconut and cornflakes? Really? Yes, really. These macaroons are extremely easy and have a satisfyingly sweet crunch.

Cornflake Macaroons
makes 12 / adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut (plus 1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup cornflakes (I’ll use more next time)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Here’s what I did:

  1. Pour the coconut, cornflakes and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Mix together with a wooden spoon, crunching up the cornflakes as you go.
  3. Add the egg whites and vanilla, mix all ingredients together with your hands.
  4. Rinse your hands and form small macaroon balls.
  5. Coat each macaroon with the extra coconut and place on parchment covered baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until golden on edges and tops.
  7. Cool on wire rack and eat it!
