While I’m camping with my family, please enjoy this summer recipe…
When it’s summer time and you don’t want to heat up the kitchen, or perhaps your oven broke like ours did last month, it’s time for some No-Bake Cookies!
This variety of No-Bakes is gluten-free and dairy free. The oats, coconut, and peanut butter make these a great energy-treat on a busy summer day.
Here Chef Joel whips up a batch…
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup almond milk
2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups gluten-free oats
1 cup shredded coconut
In a large sauce pan, cook the coconut oil, milk, sugar and cocoa over medium heat, stirring constantly. When it starts to boil, keep stirring and let it boil for one minute. Then remove the pot from the stove to a pot holder on the counter. Now add the peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until combined. Add the oats and coconut, one cup at a time until well mixed.
Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper. With a small ice cream or melon scoop, scoop the mixture onto the pans, about 20 per pan. Place the pans in the frig to firm up. Now, stand guard, they will disappear quickly! If you prefer them a bit softer, you could add less oatmeal.
Happy summertime, dear friends!
