No Bake Coconut Oil & Flaxseed cookies

DSC_0251:: Recipe via Dotting the Map ::

I’m always looking for ways to get more ground flaxseed into my diet, and these cookies are just the way! They are super easy to make as well, a no fuss recipe. I made them with my five year old yesterday and I have to admit, they are mostly gone  (some serious gym time is in order now!) One change I made – I added about half of the amount of sugar the recipe called for (so one cup instead of two) and that was plenty. Enjoy!

Coconut Oil and Flaxseed No Bake Cookie Recipe:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
3 tb cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth whatever you prefer)
3 heaped cups of oatmeal
1/4 cup more or less ground flaxseed

Combine oil, sugar, milk and cocoa in large saucepan. Bring to full boil on medium heat. Add peanut butter, flaxseed, oatmeal and vanilla. Mix thoroughly and quickly. Spoon drop out on wax paper. Let cool and set. Devour.
