Nutty for No Bakes

014

If someone mentions that something sounds good, or that they are craving something, I am right on the case. Both mom and TAb talked about No Bakes cookies this last week, so I decided to make it happen. I discovered I needed more coconut, but a trip to the store produced no unsweetened coconut. Hmm…. I’m standing in the aisle pondering what to do and it hits me: Let’s make use nuts. This was the end result and I think they ended up better than original coconut dominate recipe. You know how I know they were the real deal? My sister has a sweet tooth, when my mom was pregnant with her, she caved some major sugar. I gave my mom 3 of these last week: one for her and one  for each of my nephews Trenton and Gavin. Well she left them in my sister’s refrigerator. The next day Amanda had to know where those cookies came from. Did Brittany make these? I love my sister, but praise isn’t an everyday thing in our relationship. So if she dishes out some praise, I know it’s good. Plus if a 4 and 6 year-old tell me they are soooo goooood, then I know I’ve nailed it! The even proportions of nuts to coconut worked out beautifully.

Nutty for No Bakes

  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup grass-fed butter
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Let’s Make it Happen: Melt honey, butter, and cocoa over medium heat. Remove from heat once it begins to boil, adding in the almond butter and vanilla. Lastly fold in the coconut and nuts before dropping onto parchment paper.
