No Bake Chocolate Macaroons

Macaroon recipes contain almonds, coconut or other varieties of nut, which are held together by egg whites, and on occasion, condensed milk. Rather than using high-fat nuts, this no bake chocolate macaroons recipe uses large flake oats, which provides a chewy texture, as well as plenty of nutrition to these cookies. Large flake oats contain little fat and provide three grams of fiber per third cup. As a result, these chewy cocoa cookies are healthier than the average macaroon cookie. Additionally, large flake oats, provided they were processed in a facility without gluten products, should be gluten-free. These drop cookies also include cocoa powder which is very high in iron and dietary fiber and also contains plentiful amounts of flavonoids. For these reasons, these homemade cookies are a dessert one can feel good about eating. The best thing about this chocolate macaroon recipe is that they are chocolatey and chewy, and are no-bake. These cookies can be prepared in summer without heating up the kitchen.
