Are you looking for a super simple cookie that is sure to please a crowd?

Look no further than these chocolate chunk macaroons!

Not only are they delicious and chewy but they are also gluten-free!

If you want a less sweet cookie, replace the sweetened shredded coconut with unsweetened coconut. However, sweetened is typically easier to find.

I made these macaroons with chocolate chunks but you can also use chocolate chips if you can’t find chocolate chunks.

These super easy chocolate chunk macaroons are the perfect easy cookie! Made with just a few simple ingredients they whip in no time!


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, egg whites, chocolate chunks, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Use your hands to mix well, completely combining ingredients.
  5. Dampen hands with cold water. Form 1-1/2 tablespoons of mixture into a loose haystack shape, and place on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Repeat with the remaining mixture, placing macaroons about 1 inch apart.
  7. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Remove baking sheet from oven to a wire rack, and let macaroons cool slightly on baking sheet.
  9. These are best served warm from the oven, but can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days; leave in a warm place for 1 hour before serving to allow chocolate to soften.

Great minds think alike. I'm making a coca coconut cookie. A little bit different but not much! Yours looks delicious. I'd eat a couple for breakfast with my coffee this morning if I had any. ;-).
