Oddly enough

I have tucked away somewhere a newspaper health column that talks about the anecdotal evidence that eating macaroons helps with post-chemotherapy diarhhea, so it sounds like macaroons may have some helpful digestive effects.

I do have a macaroon recipe that looks interesting because, although it is high in fat, it also has oatmeal in it. I haven't tried it, but now that I've looked at it again, I think I will:

From The Compleat I Hate To Cook Book by Peg Bracken (copyright 1986)

Overnight Macaroons

(These are mighty speedy cookies if you remember to mix the oil and oatmeal and sugar together the night before. They have a chewy texture and an almond-macaroon taste.)

The night before, mix together:
4 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil

Next morning, mix in:
2 beaten eggs (substitute 4 egg whites or use Egg Beaters)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract

Drop them from a teaspoon onto a greased (use Pam) baking sheet, bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes, and remove them promptly when they're done.

The entire recipe has 6060 calories, 2120 from fat, so 35% CFF.
