Recipe Notes

If you are using unsweetened coconut flakes increase the sugar to 1 cup (200gms).
If needed you can dip the macaroons in melted chocolate.
Its best if eaten the same day but this can be stored in an airtight container for a few days. It tends to become soft the next day but still tastes good.
