Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: No Bake Cookies
Serves: 10 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespons honey
  • ¼ cup cream or canned coconut cream/milk
  • ¼ cup milk or canned coconut cream/milk
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 ounce 100% chocolate
  • 3 cups gluten free oats, or if you’d prefer grain free cookies, use 2 ½ cups toasted coconut
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. On medium heat in a small saucepan, bring honey and vanilla extract to a boil, then turn to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the cream, milk, and butter, return to medium heat, and bring back to boil. Boil for one minute, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the 100% chocolate and remove from heat. Stir as the chocolate melts into the mix.
  4. Add the oats, cocoa, peanut butter, and salt. Stir until combined.
  5. Cover a small cookie sheet or a large plate with parchment paper and spoon the no bake cookies onto the wax paper in heaps (about 2 tablespoons per cookie). You can also make these as bars: Just put the wax paper in a square baking pan and press the no bakes in firmly.
  6. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before eating. If you made bars, cut them after they have refrigerated for 1 hour.
  7. Store the no bakes in the refrigerator in an airtight plastic container.
