Chocolate Oat Cookies that satisfy the hunger for a hearty afternoon snack, and taste like an Almond Joy?
Chocolate Oat Cookies (originally found at 12tomatoes)
3 C quick oats
1/2 Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
3/4 C honey
2/3 C Almond Butter
1/2 C Coconut Oil
1/3 C Cocoa (the unsweetened kind)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
Combine honey, almond butter and coconut oil in a saucepan. Heat, stirring continuously, until the ingredients are smooth and blend well.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Using a small spoon, drop cookies onto a cookie sheet, which is lined with wax or parchment paper. Place in freezer about an hour to set. Store cookies in a ziplock, in the freezer.
My kids like to pull one right out of the bag, let it sit for just a moment, then eat. These cookies are a satisfying cool treat after a long day of studying, working or playing.
