Submitted by: PLASTIC_AVATAR
Steve(n)'s darker chocolate no-bakes

Introduction

Simple, hard to mess up, not too sweet, satisfying. Simple, hard to mess up, not too sweet, satisfying.
Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    .5 cup milk
    .5 cup coconut oil
    1 tablespoon+ of vanilla
    up to 2 teaspoons of salt
    .5 cup non-dutch cocoa
    1 cup sugar

Tips

Optional:

Add 3+ tablespoons of Benefiber when whisking. It adds an extra fiber punch to the cookies.

If you can handle it =P

You can cut back on the salt, too, if you need to. I prefer the taste with 2 tsp.


Directions

After I dump the ingredients in the pot, I set the stove to 2 out of 10, then wait until the house smells like chocolate. Yup, I leave the kitchen and go do something else until my nose knows.

It's a bubbling chocolatey mass by then, and just the right temperature.

Turn off the heat, mix/whisk until smooth. The sheen will be kinda dull but reflective. Pour in about 4 cups of quick oats.

Pack it in to a chocolate lump. Scoop out servings and let cool.

If I'm in the mood, I flatten the cookies and spread unsweetened natural peanut (or almond) butter on them after they're done. My wife prefers sweetened almond butter.

I usually cut them in half when I give them to kids.

We usually eat them with spoons. They lend themselves to being eaten that way.

They do not get hard like peanut butter infused, sugary no-bakes.

Everyone who tries them enjoys them. Except for people who don't like coconut...

Even though the smell is there, there is just a hint of coconut flavor.

To go over the top, you can roll them in shredded coconut or nuts, too.

Serving Size: Makes 18 portions, if you don't make them huge =)
