New Design and Macaroons Cookies (no-bake)

I bring you the new design of Sugar for the Brain! I really hope you like it, I sure do! Don’t hesitate to leave me your comments!

Here is another very easy recipe of what my family and I call Macaroons cookies (nothing to do with de French macarons). Chocolate, coconut and oat, this is good!

The challenge here was to make them look great on the photo because, well it doesn’t look fantastic normally. I did want you to crave them! So a little whipped cream here and using a cookie scoop there and it’s better!

Have a great week!


Macaroons Cookies (no-bake)

Yield about 20 cookies

1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cup rolled oats
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Bring the milk, the sugar and the butter to a boil.

Stir and continue to boil for 1 minute, until the sugar melt.

Remove from heat and add the oatmeal, coconut, cocoa powder and vanilla.

Mix thoroughly.

Drop heaps onto a wax paper, chill.

  1. This looks so delicious. Would love for you to share this with us over at

  2. Ha! The cookie everyone knows, but can never find a recipe for, b/c it has 100 names. Macaroons, haystacks, mudpies, chocolate drop cookies, no bake cookies…….

    They’re so good!

  3. Such a great recipe. I try to make these treats vegan. The raw sugars can be on the expensive side. But after some experimentation, coconut milk has been the best. It adds a sweetness, which allows you to use less sugar. It is the perfect pairing with the addition of peanut butter.

  4. Love the new look!! Very sleek! And these macaroons sound AH-MAZING! I’ll be making these in the very near future! 🙂


  5. We have made these for every Christmas Holiday. We called them haystacks and no they did not have peanut butter in them and they used carnation can milk. We obtained the recipe from Home Ec Cookbooks some fifty years ago or so. But it matters not about the name but I noticed in the pics of these cookies they looked syrupy. As if there was not enough oats and coconut in the batch or they were not cooked quite long enough. Good luck with them no matter what you call them.

      😀 This recipe is in a lot of family! It’s incredible how mainstream it is! Yes lately I seem to always make them syrupy! It’s good but I liked them before too. I’ll try to cook them longer!
