Preparation time: 10 minutes Baking time: 15 minutes
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, stir together the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
- In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
- Fold the beaten egg whites into the coconut mixture until well combined.
- Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop the coconut mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each macaroon.
- Bake the macaroons in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.
- Remove the macaroons from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the macaroons are cooled, serve and enjoy!
