A Trendy Upgrade for a Classic
Oat-based cookies shake off their old-fashioned reputation with this no-bake recipe. There's nary a raisin in sight—instead, these treats incorporate ingredients you don't normally see with oats, such as espresso and coconut, but they work surprisingly well. You start by microwaving sugar, milk and butter; next, you pour the mixture over a bowl of oats, peanut butter, coconut, cocoa powder, espresso powder, vanilla and salt; then mix, spooning the dough into balls on a cookie sheet. Let them sit for an hour, until they're set, and enjoy.
