I was craving something sweet Sunday night and went to make some cookies. I was getting all the ingredients together when I realized I didn’t have eggs. AW, MAN! I couldn’t let this sweet tooth go so I started googling eggless dessert recipes. I wanted something a little different than the traditional no bake cookies. I came across this recipe so gave it a shot. I mean, who doesn’t love anything with chocolate & peanut butter?! I altered a few things and think it turned out AMAZING. Pretty sure they were all gone the next day. Oh, and did I mention how easy is was? Enjoy!
1 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
What you’ll do:
Line square baking pan with wax or parchment paper, set aside.
Melt butter on medium heat in large skillet.
Stir in brown sugar and vanilla until combined
Stir in oats, coconut, and salt.
Turn heat to low and cook for about 5 minutes, string occasionally.
Take 1/2 of oat mixture and press into bottom of lined baking dish.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in small saucepan, string frequently.
Once fully melted, pour onto oatmeal layer. Carefully spread evenly.
Top with remaining oat mixture and gently press.
If you want to be fancy, save about a 1 tbsp. of chocolate mix to drizzle on top.
