Haystack cookies are a deliciously chewy no bake cookie with oatmeal and coconut. They're made from simple pantry ingredients, super easy, and loved by kids and adults alike.
Servings 30 cookies
- 3 cups oats*
- 1 cup shredded coconut**
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 2 cups sugar
In a medium bowl stir together the oats and coconut.
Add the butter, milk, cocoa and sugar to a medium saucepan over medium heat
Whisk gently as everything melts together, then bring the mixture to a boil for 5 minutes while gently whisking.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the oats and coconut and stir together.
Drop tablespoon sized spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden.
*Old fashioned or quick oats work well. I don't recommend steel cut oats.
**Sweetened or unsweetened coconut.
