Our Favorite No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

These are my absolute FAVORITE treat to make these days! I understand that some people may have an intolerance to oats, but so far Thomas has been fine with these and so we make them at least.... well, let's just say several times each week. ;) We do buy gluten-free oats for these cookies and were lucky enough to find a producer of these in the Salt Lake area that gives us a 40 lb. bag for $11.99! This is quite a deal, especially if you've shopped gf oats. (Note: the oats are NOT certified gluten free, but they are processed in an environment where they are not contaminated with gluten materials.)

Here's the recipe adapted from the amazing dessert cookbook by Laurie Vukich: Beauty in Every Bite Desserts
Raw HEALTHY Chocolate Oat Cookies
1 c. dates
1/2 c. raw honey
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/3 c. olive oil
1/4 c. rice or almond milk
1/4 c. cocoa or cacoa
2 T. carob powder
2 dashes salt
1 t. vanilla
3 c. oats (we use gluten free)
Combine all ingredients (except for the oats) in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour over oats, mix and spoon onto a cookie sheet. Keep in the refrigerator.
Have a healthy snack every time you pass the fridge!
