Recipe: No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies
Posted by Tamana
Sometimes it’s ok to be lazy. But you can be lazy and still make cookies without the extra hassle of baking. This recipe is a no-bake recipe that a colleague of mine shared with me a few months ago. These little bites turn out amazing and satisfy that sweet craving ever-so nicely.
Here’s what you need:
3 cups cooking oats
1 cup sweetened coconut shreds
2 cups white sugar (I only use 1 1/2 cups because the coconut is sweetened too)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
Here’s what you do:
In a saucepan, roast coconut until slightly golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes, then add oats and mix. In a separate saucepan bring sugar, cocoa powder, milk and margins to a boil. Pour mixture over oats and coconut mixtures and combine until all oats are evenly coated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place spoonfuls of mixture into parchment paper and cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and then enjoy!
See! These are my lazy no-bake cookies and they’re husband approved! Try them out and let me know what your loved ones think.
