Chocolate Omega Macaroons (vegan, gluten-free)

Chocolate Omega Macaroons
Craving chocolate? Chocolate Omega Macaroons  are fast to make and contain no butter or margarine. The flaxseed meal provides Omega-3 fatty acids and teams up with oatmeal for an excellent source of soluble fiber.  Cocoa is rich in antioxidants.... All in all, a pretty good excuse to eat chocolate, no?

[I have gotten my hands on some Avocado oil, which does not have as strong a flavour as olive oil. I'll try this out and make an amendment if it's a good idea- Laura @ Stealthy Mom, May 2013]

To make about four dozen Chocolate Omega Macaroons:

3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups sugar
3/4 cups water
1 cup flaxseed meal
3 cups quick oats
1 cup flaked coconut

In a large sauce pan, mix olive oil and cocoa powder. Slowly heat, constantly stirring. When the powder is completely melted, stir in the sugar and water. Heat until it starts to bubble, constantly stirring. Add the flaxseed meal and stir again until bubbly. Stir in the oatmeal and coconut, maintaining a low heat for a couple more minutes.

Turn off the heat.  As soon as the mixture is cool enough to touch, start breaking off chunks and rolling into 1" balls, and chill at least an hour before serving. (If you are short on time, spray a pyrex cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and press the mixture into it. Cut when chilled.)


  1. These look amazing AND I already have all of the ingredients in my house today!

    I might make some if I have time this evening.

    YUMMY! : )
