My Easy Gluten and Dairy Free Macaroon Recipe

Hi and welcome back.

I hope you are all okay and doing well.

When I was first diagnosed as a coeliac, I was overwhelmed by how much my diet had now changed. I struggled so much to find a gluten free treat that I could snack on. I had never been much of a fan of coconut before, until I found the Mrs Crimbles Macaroons.

I loved them so much, but after a few months of everyone getting them for me, I fell out of love with them and began looking for new products. I soon came back to them; the chocolate and coconut mix are an indulgent treat that I always go back to. If you have tried them, what did you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Lately, I have been on a dairy free diet as well as gluten free so these tasty treats from Mrs Crimbles were now restricted. I decided to try and re-create my own gluten and dairy free coconut macaroons.

I was looking at so many recipes online and most of them involved adding condensed milk which sadly is not dairy free. I decided to try and adapt a recipe and to try and create a gluten and dairy free.

This recipe is the result. To make the coconut macaroons I use 1 egg white and 20g gluten free plain flour instead. The macaroons are sweet and hold their shape well without being to try. I dip mine in melted dark chocolate (which is naturally gluten and dairy free but please check before using).

I hope you enjoy My Gluten and Dairy Fee Coconut Macaroons. If you re-create them, please let me know by tagging me on Instagram using #livingcoeliac or by sharing photos directly to my Facebook Page.
