Craving some chocolatey goodness but don’t want to heat up your kitchen? Make these paleo No-Bake Chocolate Almond Macaroons and have a chocolate cookie without touching the oven. This post was originally featured as my guest post over at Fit Foodie Finds.
We are quickly getting into the thick of summer and Independence Day is on Thursday. That came up pretty fast -where did the time go?? It hasn’t been too hot around Wyoming (around 85° this week), but temps across the country have been setting new records (117°+ in Vegas!).
With this big heat wave, I’m pretty sure it would be a considered a crime to turn your oven on. Wherever you are celebrating July 4th this week, you can keep your house cool with these No-Bake Chocolate Almond Macaroons.
If you are looking for a healthy and easy dessert recipe for July 4th, these are the perfect treat! These cookies are simple, whole-food, allergy-friendly, Paleo, and vegetarian (with a vegan option). You can even make these raw if you use raw ingredients.
Have nut allergies? No worries! Just sub the almonds for pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds and the almond butter for SunButter so you won’t miss out on these cookies.
One of my favorite desserts is chocolate no-bake cookies! We used to make Eskimo cookies all the time when I was growing up, and I think I could have polished off an entire batch of those babies on my own! Not that I ever did that…but I sure thought about it J These cookies are reminiscent of the Eskimo cookies we used to make, but without the oatmeal.
