Where’d They Go!? Choco No-Bake Cookie Chews
December 21, 2011 § 3 Comments
My mom refers to these cookies as the “disappearing choco-balls.” My aunt told me the word “dream” had to appear somewhere in the title because, as the suggestion implies, she dreamt of them. I’ve taken a liking to eating two of them after every meal. And let me quell any concerns if you’re not in Camp Coconut (my mom and I join you, there) – the coconut imparts great texture and only a mild flavor that’s superseded by the chocolate.
1/2 cup rolled oats*
3/4 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup natural peanut butter, chunky
*If following a strict gluten-free diet, be sure to purchase oats that have been processed in a facility without wheat to avoid cross-contamination.
Combine dry ingredients and toss with a fork. Stir in honey and peanut butter with a large wooden spoon, electric mixer or by hand. Roll into balls about 1″ in diameter and refrigerate for at least an hour before eating. These freeze and thaw well, too.
