NO BAKE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
A healthy, candy-like cookie.  A great cookie (nice large size) for kids to put in their lunch boxes.  Oats are great for lowering cholesterol....but this cookie is more of a maintenance-style cookie.  High in fiber, so do watch out for that.

1 cup quick-cooking oats (250 mL)
1 cup unsweetened coconut, (250 mL)
finely desiccated
1/4 cup cocoa (50 mL)
Sugar substitute to equal 1/2 cup sugar (125 mL)
2 tbsp whole OR skim milk (25 mL)
powder
2 tbsp unsalted butter (25 mL)
2 tbsp peanut butter, no sugar or (25 mL)
salt added, OR almond butter
1/2 cup Da Vinci® Sugar Free Chocolate syrup, OR (125 mL)
  chocolate extract (optional), water and more sweetener to taste)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)

In large bowl, combine oats, coconut, cocoa, sugar substitute and whole or skim milk powder.

In cereal bowl, microwave butter and peanut butter or almond butter 1 minute. Stir in Da Vinci® Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup, OR chocolate (extract), water and sweetener, and vanilla extract.

Add peanut or almond butter mixture to dry ingredients, stirring until well combined.

Hi Jen,

I love the look of your Easter Brownies! I even ordered some erythritol from Netrition. . . along with a few other goodies. I am anxious to see what customs will have to say about that!?

You have had a lot of company lately. Must be very busy! We are going to Alberta for Easter. Plan to be gone April 8 - 15. Hoping to see ALL the kids this time.

BTW is almond flour same thing as ground almonds??

Talk to you soon.
Margaret

Hi Margaret,

For a moment I thought I lost your comment (Waaaah, my only comment in a while! lol)! Then I found you under the next post. Phew!

That is so cool that you're ordering from Netrition. They are great. I am also curious as well to see what customs will have to say about that.

Almond meal is supposed to be ground almonds and almond flour is supposed to be finer, however, I use them interchangeably, usually without problems. My almond flour that I ordered from Netrition says: Almond Meal/Flour. However, remember that health food store next to Shoppers Drug Mart and across the way from the old Safeway? They have pretty good, finely ground, blanched almond flour in the bins on the left-hand-side of the store, towards the back. I miss the candy store as well with the sugar free chocolate chips. Those are awesome, although I never lost weight eating 'em. Figures! I am going to be working on some homemade chocolate chips using my erythritol.

Yes, it has been very busy with company and more coming tomorrow 'till Friday.

So happy you will be having a nice little holiday shortly to see your family. It will be spring-time in the Rockies - almost! :)

Keep well and happy. Think of you often and miss you guys lots!! (((HUGgggggggggssss)))
