No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies

I don’t know who took initiative to come up with some cookies – good and healthy – but we loved them and they appeared back the next day! (sorry no pictures, we ate them all!)

No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies

1 cup sucanat – raw sugar (or 2/3 cup date sugar)

¼ cup chocolate powder (or carob powder)

¼ cup of almond milk (or rice milk, or soymilk)

2 tablespoons oil

1/3 cup peanut/almond butter (smooth or crunched)

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

1 ½ cup oat flakes

1. in medium saucepan, combine sucanat, chocolate powder, the almond milk and oil. Stir constantly and bring to a rolling boil. Cook for 1 ½ min.

2. Add nut butter and vanilla and mix well. Add oat flakes and mix again. Drop the mixture by the spoonful onto a sheet of waxed paper. Cookies will harden as they cool.

If you like, you can add raisins and/or walnuts as they are cooling; or use more of your imagination.
