No-Bake Cookies (coconut oil treats)
1 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup honey
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
NOTE about working with coconut oil: Make sure your coconut oil is at room temperature, about 70º, or it will be too hard to work with. A crisco texture is preferred. If my oil is hard, I like to use a spoon and scrape the oil slowly to obtain the crisco texture. It is much easier to work with this way.
Add all ingredients: mix together until combined well, using an electric mixer or spoon (whisks will not work for this). At this point you will need to spoon it on to a tray like you would cookies or spread it on a tray like fudge (glass trays work best for this). Be sure to have it done within 15 minutes, as the mixture will start to separate and melt if this part of the process is drawn out. Refrigerate when done.
