Vegan Oatmeal and Chocolate Cookies

Another no-bake wonder, these cookies contain the superfood coconut oil! The coconut flavor goes well with the chocolate and oatmeal to add just a bit of sweetness and tropical flare. They also pack a little bit of a punch with the addition of peanut butter. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1/4 cup oats gluten free if necessary
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil measured as liquid
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 cups Raw Sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 9 Minutes
  • 15 Cookies
  • Freeze
  • Vegan, Gluten-Free, Vegetarian

RECIPE

  1. Measure out the oats into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Place a piece of wax paper on the counter for the cookies once cooked
  3. In a large sauce pan, combine coconut oil, peanut butter, cashew milk, raw sugar, cocoa powder, and salt
  4. Turn heat on medium (no higher) and stir consistently until it comes to a rolling boil
  5. Set the timer for 4 minutes and continually stir, making sure to scrap the sides and bottom regularly
