Coconut Cookies (Gluten-Free)

These Coconut Cookies are a hybrid of coconut macaroons and a meringue cookie, but with added corn flake crumbs. Delicious and gluten-free!

To-Die-For Coconut Cookies

The first time I made these meringues, I nearly inhaled them right out of the oven! A few of my other favorite varieties of meringue cookies include Sprinkle Dipped Meringues, Black and White Chocolate Chip Clouds, Chocolate Chip Clouds and Peppermint Meringues.

With the holidays quickly approaching, I’m sure lots of you are busy baking! This recipe was emailed to me a while ago by a woman who told me these were “to die for” hence the name. I held on to it for a while with intentions of trying it for the holidays, and I was super pleased with the results–I think you will be too!

Helpful Tips:

  • For the corn flake crumbs, you can buy gluten-free crushed cornflakes in many supermarkets or make your own, just put them in the food processor and crush until very fine. If gluten free is an issue, check the labels on the cornflakes, not all are GF.
  • Don’t have cornflakes? Crushed rice chex cereal also works great.
  • As these are meringues, you want to make sure your beaters and bowls are very clean, I prefer metal or glass bowls. Also make sure none of the yolk gets into the egg whites, or they may not turn out.
  • Fold in some mini chocolate chips at the end for variations.
