Cookie Thursday 4/14/22- cocoa no bakes with coconut

Coconut month continues.

Why coconut month?

Because I have a ton of coconut in my baking pantry.

And lots of recipes.

And coconut flour that I don’t care for that I will gladly feed to other people.

For this week, I used the basic fudgy cocoa no bake recipe of 1 stick of butter, 2 c sugar, 1/3 c of cocoa, 1/2 c milk, 3/4 crunchy peanut butter, 3 c of oatmeal. I had plans of using 1 1/2 c coconut and 1 1/2 c oatmeal.

But horrors! No crunchy peanut butter. There are 2 of us in this house and I’m the only one who eats it. Curious.

I did have a multiple nut butter in the pantry. One of those hmm, I wonder how this tastes. And it languished. Not crunchy though. It is a blend of Brazilian nuts, hazelnuts, almonds. All the nuts.

I used that instead of crunchy peanut butter. And 2 cups coconut, 1 cup quick cook oatmeal.

The cookies were softer than usual but still tasted amazing.

I was expecting a stronger coconut flavor.

To the baking pantry!

On nursing side this week, yet another nurse was charged for stopping a med error before it reached the patient. In their mind this is elder abuse. In my mind this is getting scary.

Because we don’t always get the effect that we want from treatment. People get sicker. People die.

It is not the nurse’s fault.
