Preheat oven to 300°F. Combine coconut, flour and salt in a small mixing bowl. Add milk and vanilla, stirring to combine.
Using an ice cream scoop, drop scoopfuls of the mixture onto a sheet tray lined with parchment or waxed paper.
Bake until outsides are light golden. (Check at 5-minute intervals.) When done, remove to a cooling rack.
Note: If you would like to have chocolate-dipped macaroons, melt the chocolate chips and dip the top of each cooled macaroon in the chocolate. Place on a plate and then chill until chocolate is set. Or skip the chocolate and enjoy plain with a cup of coffee.
