Okay, here's the healthy-ish no-bake cookie recipe. You can add other things like hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc., if you happen to have those around, too. I typed the recipe as it was given to me, then added my own substitutions and such in parenthesis.
6 tablespoons whole milk (Non-homogenized, if you can get it.)
1/3 cup sugar (I use Rapadura or substitute xylitol.)
1 + Tbsp cocoa powder (Just depends on how much of a chocolate taste you want. A tablespoon will be plenty chocolatey.)
3 tsps vanilla
2/3 cup peanut butter (I've recently tried subbing homemade almond butter to good effect. Unsweetened nut butter is best, if you're looking to reduce sugar intake.)
3 tsps ground flax seed (I have used up to 1/4 cup of flax seed, and I've put it in whole, too.)
2 cups oatmeal
Combine milk, cocoa, and sugar in a pan over high heat. Heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter, stirring until peanut butter is melted. Add flax seeds and oatmeal and stir until well combined.
Drop by spoonfulls onto wax paper and refridgerate until firm. (Or, eat it right out of the pan, if you prefer. Not that we've ever done that around here or anything.
) Makes between 12 and 24 cookies, depending on size of each cookie. (Closer to 15 or so, when I make them.)
No one ever believes these are "healthy" when I make them. And everyone eats them right up!
