A night of sewing is in store for my mom and I. We are making curtains, and I have had a sweet tooth sense dinner. I need chocolate!!! My mom doesn’t have any chocolate, so I am going to make my own chocolate dessert. I need something simple and quick; no-bakes sound perfect. Godiva Carmel coffee is brewing, and us girls are hard at work.
These simple delicious no bakes nearly taste like you melted Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and poured it over oats! I know its not the healthiest dessert, but organic ingredients + home-made = simply perfect!
You will need a pot, cookie sheet, wax paper, mixing bowl, and a wooden spoon….
5 cups organic oats
1/2 cups organic light brown sugar
1 cup of sugar in the raw (or your preference)
4 T organic cocoa powder
3/4 cup of half and half (or milk, almond milk, etc.)
1/2 stick of unsalted organic butter, cubed
1 cup or organic peanut butter
1/2 cup organic applesauce
2 T pure vanialla extract
1 T of brewed coffee (optional)
Hint: Coffee brings out the flavors in chocolate, its my special ingredient!
Bring the butter, applesauce, sugar, peanut butter and cocoa to a boil. Pull the pot off the heat and pour in the half and half and vanilla. Place 5 cups of oats in a separate bowl. Pour the hot mixture onto the oats and mix thoroughly. On a cookie sheet place a piece of wax paper and use a spoon to drop spoonfuls of the no-bake mix onto the cookie sheet. The recipe can yield about 30 depending on how big your spoonfuls are. Place the cookies in the ice box for 15 minutes. Serve with coffee or milk and enjoy!
