And we’re making progress with our move! Slowly but surely our new place is coming together and starting to feel like “home”. Posts about the Greek Fest and Caffeine Crawl are still coming very soon but while I continue to unpack boxes, I’ll leave you with a recipe from a few weeks ago.They involve not baking, chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal. Yes, please!
Hope everyone has a great week … who’s loving fall as much as me?
Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies yield: about 1 1/2 dozen
-- adapted from Food Network.com
- 1 1/2 cups organic cane sugar
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 cups oatmeal
- Waxed paper
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, cocoa, coconut oil and milk. Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by tablespoons, until cooled and hardened.
Note: I stuck mine in the freezer since I was too impatient to wait for them to cool, and we ended up leaving ours there because we loved them chilled so much! Also, feel free to lesson the sugar if you don’t want them to be too sweet, as they do turn out pretty rich
