One of my sons asked me if we could make no-bake cookies on Thursday. I told him that we could if he and his brothers got their chores and homework done. It tuned out that only one of them got finished in time so, only one boy got to help. While out shopping with Dave, I saw the Easter candy and though that we could make this into a cute Easter treat with the addition of some Peeps and chocolate eggs.
What is Easter without Peeps, after all? LOL!
We started out with a recipe that I found online and then I altered it so that it was nut and gluten free.
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups gluten free quick oats
Mix together in a medium size pot the first six ingredients. Let the butter melt and all of the ingredients to come to a simmer.
Then take off the heat and add the oats. Place by two tablespoons for each cookie onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches from one another.
