|Me writing this post with my family in the background last night :)|
Now, next time I have a craving for dessert, I figured rather than running out to the grocery store spur of the moment, it would be nice to have that something sweet in the freezer.
Here is a No Bake Drop Cookie recipe I found in The MILF diet. I got 12 large cookies from this recipe. They are fantastic!
2/3 cup maple syrup
5 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Over medium heat, combine maple syrup, oil, cocoa, and cinnamon. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla until blended.
3. Drop spoonfuls onto waxed paper and chill in freezer for about 30 minutes.
4. Store in freezer (if you don't eat them all up!)
Last night, I used 1/3 cup maple syrup and 1/3 cup brown rice syrup instead (saving my maple syrup for Saturday pancakes!) Also, I only had quick oats, but they did the trick. I also did not have any vanilla in the house. I was thinking adding flaxseed would have been a nice addition - next time! My cookies were more ball shape so they didn't quite look like cookies, but I suppose that doesn't matter!
Seriously Delicious. Let me know if you give them a try!
What's your favorite sweet treat?
