Hay Stacks-No Bake Treat

on May 5, 2020

I fondly remember making no-bake chocolate haystacks as a kid: butter, sugar, cocoa, peanut butter, and oatmeal all stirred up in a pan on the stove. Since two of those items are not in my food plan, oatmeal and sugar, I made my own no-sugar version using unsweetened coconut. This makes a small batch of 10-12 depending on how you portion them out.  There are other ways to do this recipe, but this is the easiest I’ve seen.

1/3 cup Lily’s dark chocolate chips sweetened with stevia

2 Tablespoons butter

1/3 cup unsweetened peanut butter (I used chunky)

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (add more if you want a denser cookie)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter, then add the butter and vanilla, mix well then add the coconut.  Using a cookie scoop place on parchment, or silicone baking sheet, or in silicone mini-muffin pan.  Refrigerate.  After they are firm store transfer to your favorite contain and keep in fridge.
