You know those days where you’re in a hurry but you promised you’d bring something to the baseball game/pot luck/friends BBQ? Don’t worry, i’ve got you covered with these no-bake coconut macaroons.
There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done, plain and simple. Even when you think you’ve created a timeline or a to-do list that will get you going, something always happens.
I have been busy busy. It’s not an excuse, I chose to be busy. Let’s talk multi-tasking. I’m a self-proclaimed expert multi-tasker. I can have 9 projects on the go, and frankly I feel better if I have more than one thing to focus on. It’s flow of consciousness, your brain naturally flows through the different things going on in your life, and sometimes these are the thoughts that lead to great ideas, or things you may have not thought of.
The project nearest and dearest to my heart is a dog rescue called Sit With Me. I have been their co-chair of events & fundraising and there’s always more I can do, and I know it. This rescue is such an amazing group of people, and they have to face some pretty challenging situations that not everyone can face. They pull dogs of all shapes, sizes, and conditions, and together, we find a home for them. Our committee plays a role in this too, by helping to raise funds we help the rescue be able to save more dogs, and that makes me feel amazing!
You’ll likely hear more about Sit With Me in the future, it’s a big part of who I am!
All this to say, there’s not enough hours in the day to do it all, and sometimes you need a little cheat. These no-bake coconut macaroons taste like you’ve spent a lot of time on them, but other than the refrigeration (which takes about 30 minutes) it’s the easiest, and delicious-est quick and easy cookie you can make.
Did I mention they taste like more?? No but seriously. It was hard to STOP eating them, they’re sweet but not too sweet, and I added some cinnamon
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/4 cup condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
- Using your hands, or a spoon, form cookies into small rounded drops and place on a lined cookie sheet.
- Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes or until solid.
