No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
This recipe results in chewy and but not too sweet No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies that you will want to make often, and keep around for every one in your family to snack on. They are a great combination of raw ingredients that even the youngest cook in your family can likely pull together. The portions are not even all that important, although you may want to watch the butter that goes in. Butter could be substituted, in part, with coconut oil. Coconut oil is a solid that blends the same way that butter does, but contains far less saturated fat.
This recipe contains several blockbusters of nutrition including oats, walnuts, and coconut. The recipe calls for flaked coconut, which usually is not sweetened. Look for this variety at your organic food store, if it is not available at your usual grocer’s. It does make a substantial flavor and texture difference. Oats are a fantastic food to eat. Buy an organic variety and check that they have been processed in a wheat, rye, and barley free facility if you want this treat to be gluten free. Oats contribute fiber, lower cholesterol levels, and are a heart smart grain to eat. Walnuts are possibly the king of nuts, action packed with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories. Buy walnuts whole, and when you break them open be sure to also eat the thin skin that surrounds the nut for important nutritional components.
This is a delicious cookie recipe that probably most members of your family can make up. It is quick and easy. It will vastly improve in flavor if you refrigerate the dough overnight (most cookie dough improves with 24 hours in the fridge). Keep the cookies in the fridge in a jar where people can grab and go.
