The air is stale.
You haven't been spending much time in the kitchen.
Because it's hot.
But you still want a cookie......right??
So why not make No Bakes? Or maybe you call them Gorilla Poops? That seems to be the name that has stuck around here......please let me know if you call them something that doesn't contain the P word.
Oh--and these are made with agave nectar (this one). I've been playing around with it lately, and so far I'm really liking it!
No Bakes/Gorilla Poops/
Chocolaty Oatmeal Globs That Taste Really Good When It's Hot Out
3/4 c pure agave nectar
1/4 c baking cocoa
1/4 c milk
1/4 c butter
1/4 c chunky peanut butter
2- 2 1/2 c old fashioned rolled oats
a few drops of pure vanilla
pinch of salt
In a medium sauce pan mix agave nectar and baking cocoa. Add milk and butter. Stir over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, salt and oats. Drop by spoonfuls onto lined cookie sheets. We like to put ours in the freezer and eat them straight out!
