Whatever you call them, I love them.
We love the cookies so much that Nick had a plate of those as his “groom’s cake” at our wedding instead of an actual cake.
As soon as I saw Christie’s post on her no bake cookie oatmeal, I knew I needed to make it. Plus, she just sent me some homemade coconut butter and I couldn’t wait to try it in this bowl! Thanks, friend! :)
Now, my mom never put peanut butter in her no bakes. I know the most common no bakes were either pure cocoa (like hers), peanut butter, or coconut. The simple cocoa ones are still my favorite, but I love all of them.
But since I wanted to try my coconut butter, I went all out today – cocoa, coconut, AND peanut butter.
I was also trying out a new milk today! I finally found this Turtle Mountain Coconut Milk in the store this weekend and was excited to try it in my oatmeal.
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- pinch salt
- 1/2 banana (for sweetness)
- 1 Tbsp coconut butter
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter
No wonder people are going crazy over coconut butter – it’s delicious! I love how it melts on top of the oatmeal. I can’t wait to see what else I can do with it.
I also really liked this coconut milk. I bought the unsweetened, but did see that they had an Original and Vanilla flavor. Does anyone know if they make a chocolate one? I bet that would be delicious.
Have you tried coconut milk and/or butter? What are your favorite ways to use them?
