Brownie Coconut Macaroons

Photos Updated June 2014

My poor daughter is sick for the first time. This is the first time I’m experiencing taking care of a sick child, and as a mother, it is so hard to watch her suffer. Luckily, it’s nothing big, (no H1N1), but even if it was only a few sniffles, it would still be hard to watch. I’ve spent 90% of the last day and a half with her in my arms. I know that when I am sick, cuddling always helps!!

Brownie Coconut Macaroon Recipe

Needless to say, I haven’t done much cooking in the last 2 days. It’s a bit difficult to do anything when you’ve got a 20 pound child in one arm! But these brownie coconut macaroon cookies – they would seriously be easy enough to make one-handed!! I do have to say, I’m not a big boxed brownie lover. I think from scratch is almost just as easy and a lot tastier. But I will seriously keep boxed brownie mixes on my shelf for these cookies! If you can’t decide which you are craving – a cookie or a brownie – then these coconut macaroons are for you. But they are addictive – I’m warning you now!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Only 5 ingredients make up these fudgy, coconut filled cookies.
Serves: 24 cookies
  • 1 (19.5 oz.) pkg. brownie mix*
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 egg
  1. Heat oven to 350F. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; beat 50 strokes with spoon. Shape dough into 1½ inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheet; flatten slightly.
  2. Bake at 350F for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are set. (Centers will be soft.) Remove from cookie sheets.
*The original recipe calls for a 19.5 oz box of brownies, but the recipe has also been tested with the 18.4 oz size that is on the market today. It works with both sizes.

    That's such a bummer. I hate it when kid's get sick. I hope she gets better soon! These macaroons look so good!

    So sorry your daughter is sick…I don't see any reason not to take cooking shortcuts when you are caring for her. Besides, these turned out wonderfully.

  4. Grace says:

    there's nothing good about being sick, especially when it's a little one–i'm sorry!
    there's nothing bad about these cookies. quick, chocolatey, and delightful!

    I hope your baby is feeling better soon and that you both can get a lot of rest until then.

    These look really good. I love chocolate and coconut together. I wish my kids liked coconut. Now if I make it, I'll be forced to eat them all. Just kidding, I'll have some happy neighbors who get whatever I don't eat.

  8. Jones says:

    I have made these before and oh my gosh, they ARE seriously addictive!!

    hope your little girl feels better soon.

    I'm a believer in shortcut mixes. It's the final outcome that is important. I'm sorry your baby is sick. There is nothing worse. Sending good healthy vibes. 🙂

    Ohhhh I hope she gets better soon! That makes me sad. I hope it's nothing.

    I couldn't make these cookies and have them around. I would eat them all…

  12. Andrew & Carlene Wood says:

    i tried them and loved them…I bet ya they'd be good also to omit the coconut (or use half) and substitute peanut better chips….mmm mmm good.

    Mmm what a great modification of a box mix! I love coconut. Hope your daughter is feeling better by now!

    Children's hurts are our hurts. I hope she is well again.

    You created a great cookie. Easy is good. Chocolate is better.

    I was looking for a quick and yummy cookie recipe, and this looks perfect for using up that box brownie mix hiding in my pantry. Thanks!!

    These brownies are exquisite. I highly reccommend this to anyone who wants diabetes or feels as if they dont have the will to live anymore

    • Deborah says:

      @Chubbo, I’m an everything in moderation believer. I don’t think one of these will kill you! (and by the way, I can see your email address and IP address, so I know the reply you made to your comment was also from you, so I’m not publishing it. I’m not sure if you are trying to get a debate going on here, but I try to keep everything nice and friendly and positive around here!)

  19. Shayla says:

    I LOVE this recipe! Instead of baking them as cookies, I bake them in a mini-cupcake pan so they’re like little brownie bites! I am making them for a graduation party this weekend and was wondering if you thought this recipe would be okay to make ahead of time and then freeze until the party? I’ve never frozen coconut or brownies before and I don’t want to ruin them! Thanks!!!
