Who doesn’t love a no-bake cookie? They are quick, easy and taste great! So what would you say if I told you that Chef Brad had a healthier version of your traditional no-bake cookies, but they still tasted just as good as the traditional ones. I really loved the use of coconut oil instead of butter because it adds a really nice flavor. I think you will really like the new addition!
Chef Brad’s recipe calls for Kamut Flakes, however I could not find Kamut flakes anywhere in our town or the surrounding area. And when I tried to make my own Kamut flakes I may have broken the grain press! I didn’t know that Kamut is an extremely hard grain and needs to be soaked before pressing it! Well if you didn’t know that, now you do and you can soak your Kamut before pressing it. Since my home pressed Kamut ended badly, I decided to substitute an extra cup of White Quinoa flakes instead and the cookies were FANTASIC!
So let’s not keep the cookies waiting.
Gather your ingredients.
Next combine your sugar, cocoa, milk and coconut oil in your pan and bring it to a boil.
Then add your vanilla, peanut butter, oats, and white quinoa flakes and mix well.
Drop the cookies out on to wax paper.
Let them set up. This will only take about 8 minutes and then you can gobble them up, or hide them so no one else will!
So until next time…
