Stovetop Choc-Oat-late Cookies

Clever name, huh?  These are no-bake cookies yet do require a stovetop.  They are easy, rich and chewy cookies that I made up to tote along to a picnic with friends; quick and yummy.  And fiber-ful and filling, which is always a nice attribute for a cookie.

Stovetop Choc-Oat-late Cookies
Yields 12 medium/large cookies


1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup organic coconut oil
1/4 cup sunflower seed milk or other nondairy milk
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
2 cups gluten-free oats
1/4 cup raw coconut flakes
3 tablespoons raw cacao nibs or nondairy chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla or vanilla bean paste


1.  In a saucepan mix the cacao and honey, heating over medium heat until fully combined and soft.  Stir in nondairy milk and coconut oil and boil for about one or two minutes while stirring.
2.  Remove from heat and add in oats, sunflower seed butter, coconut flakes and vanilla.  Stir in cacao nibs or nondairy chips last, if using.
3.  Use a ice-cream or cookie dough scoop and portion out several mounds.  Chill in the fridge to set for 15 minutes.  Will keep in the fridge for several days.
