We have a new rainbow recipe for you! Vegan coconut macaroons (without eggs) with rainbow glaze. Making coconut macaroons is really easy, but usually egg whites are used. So we’ll replace that and we also share our tips for glaze making.
With our rainbow recipes we try to make the world a little more colorful and accepting from the kitchen! Will you help? Share your creations via #rainbowrecipes.
Coconut Macaroons Recipe
The basis of every coconut macaroon recipe is simple: egg whites, sugar and desiccated coconut. We will replace the egg whites for our vegan recipe and for the taste, we add vanilla extract.
How do you make coconut macaroons? You beat the egg whites stiff and mix all ingredients together. You can make little balls out of this sticky batter. Bake the coconut macaroons at 160 °C / 356 °F in about 20 minutes (depending on the size of the coconut balls). They are ready when they have browned a bit. Allow the macaroons to cool completely.
Vegan Coconut Macaroons
We make coconut macaroons without eggs! There is a perfect substitute for egg whites: aquafaba. The word sounds very chic, but it is not: aquafaba is simply chickpea liquid. So next time you make hummus (or rainbow hummus), save the liquid!
1 egg white can be replaced by 2 tablespoons of aquafaba. You can whip this liquid just as stiff as egg white. It’s important for this recipe that you whip it up so stiffly that you can keep your bowl upside down and it won’t fall out.
We decorate our coconut macaroons with rainbow glaze! Making glaze is very easy. All you need is powdered sugar and a liquid. I like to add lemon juice to make the icing nice and fresh, but you can also use plain water or (vegetable) milk.
For this recipe, we also add a coloring to the glaze. Do this before adding liquid or your icing will become too thin.
We use gel food coloring, but you can also use liquid coloring or natural colors. If you use liquid coloring, you need less or no extra liquid. If you use powdered colors or gel coloring, add a liquid of your choice (water, lemon juice or milk) to make the glaze. The glaze should be thin enough to decorate the coconut crown with a spoon, but not so thin that the glaze overflows.
