INGREDIENTS FOR YIELDS
2 cups (160g) Quick oats
3/4 cups (67g) Rolled oats
180g (6.3oz) Dark chocolate
1½ cups + 1 tablespoon (375ml) Coconut milk
2 tablespoons (25g) Sugar (white or brown)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl.
3. In a small saucepan place coconut milk, sugar and salt, bring to a simmer, turn the heat off and pour over chopped chocolate, add vanilla extract, let sit for 2 minutes, then stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.
4. Immediately add oat and stir until combined.
5. Using a cookie scoop or two spoons drop mixture onto lined baking sheets.
6. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until set, about 1-2 hours.
Instead using 2 types of oats you can use just one type (225-230g total). I prefer 2 types for a better texture.
Instead of coconut milk you can use cram of half&half (not a vegan version). Or other non-dairy milk with a 5% fat or more for a vegan version.
For extra flavor and notorious, you can add to the recipe chopped nuts, seeds or even protein powder.
Keep in the refrigerator up to 6-7 days or in the freezer up to 2 months.
