Luvy’s favorite cookie is a “no bake cookie”. Easy for me, right??
When I was little, we never called them a no bake cookie. We called them Cow Patties…. kinda fitting if you look at them! HA! I suppose the country is coming out in me. ;) We all used to get so excited when we would see that our cafeteria had cow patties that day!
I figured I would call these no bake cookies, because you all would be more likely to eat them than if they are called a “Cow Patty”.
I have always made my cow patties no bake cookies the same way my grandma and mom did. That was until I was starting to make them, and realized I was out of butter.
Am I the only one that never looks to see if she/he has all the ingredients before starting to cook?? Yep… do it all the time.
I was determined to make those cookies for Luvy, so I improvised and it turned out better than ever! Sorry, Grandma.. I have a new recipe now.
Coco-Nut No Bake Cookies
- 2 cups of organic sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup milk (I used flax)
- 3Tbsp cocoa
- 3 cups oatmeal (gluten free if necessary)
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (make sure it is gluten free if needed)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
Put peanuts in a pastic bag and crush them. A rolling pin works nicely for this.
Mix sugar, coconut oil, milk and cocoa in a pan. Heat to a boil and boil 1 minute. Stir frequently to keep from burning.
Remove from heat, add vanilla, oats, peanut butter, and peanuts.
Spoon onto waxed paper to cool.
fight over who gets to lick the spoon and pan… right Mom??
You could also add in shredded coconut instead of the peanuts as well. We didn’t have any…. Imagine that!
What add in do you think would be good for the no bake cookies?
Did anyone else call them Cow Patties??
