Coconut No Bake Cookies

A minor tweak to the original No Bake Cookie, makes for a delicious change of pace.  The same chocolatey goodness with a twist of coconut.  I thought about adding shredded coconut to them, but decided that my kids might find that a bit to much.  If you’re a true coconut lover you could substitute the oats for coconut.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • a bit of salt
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats

Combine all the ingredients, except the oats in a sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in the oats.  Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper.  Allow to cool for a while, until they have set up a bit.

  1. I always add 1/2 cup of peanut butter to the mixture before I add the oats, but after it is off the fire. I’d never thought to leave it out.

  2. This sounds really good with coconut. Wonder how it would taste with peanut butter….

    My mom ALWAYS made these for my brother when we were growing up. We called them “Uncooked chocolate oatmeal cookies” Long name, but yummy!

    I’ve made them with coconut for years now. I cut out about a cup of the oats & substitute coconut. Also, if you use real butter & crunchy peanut butter, your no-bakes will set up nicer.

  9. Yum…. these were always my favorite treat for my mom & now I love making them for my family!! I always use extra coconut in mine!!
