Coconut rochers recipe (gluten free), also known as coconut macaroons

Pic by me

Coconut rochers are one of my favorite go-to recipes for my sweet tooth. One of those I don't even remember that is gluten free. What is gluten anyway with these? :-)

Macaroons are common here in Belgium, ever present in supermarkets and bakeries, but they are so easy to make that I got a 2.5kg (5lb) bag of dried organic coconut so I can make them whenever I want, especially in my in-the-middle-of-the-night baking sessions; it's also rather quickly baked, so you save some firewood/electricity as well in comparison to making, let's say, a cake. And of course you save hassles and inconvenient gluten free flour mixes. It doesn't lump together like regular flour so it will also be easily mixed. And, of course, it costs a fraction from the coconut macaroons in the shop, and they can be endlessly customized!
