aka haystacks, chocolate macaroons, cow patties
- 1 cup natural peanut butter (smooth)
- 1/2 cup date puree
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 4 oz cacao butter drops*(see note)
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups oatmeal
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
Place first 4 ingredients in a medium size pot. Over low heat stir together and slowly heat until cocoa butter is melted and well incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add oatmeal and coconut, mixing until everything is well blended. Scoop using a small ice cream scoop (approx. 1/8 cup size) on to lined pan, press down to desired thickness and refrigerate until firm. Store in an air tight container. Enjoy.
Note: these are the cacao butter drops that I used. They look a lot like white chocolate chips but do not taste like them. They are 100% pure. If you do not have these or do not want to buy them (they are quite expensive) replace the 4 oz with half butter and half chocolate chips sweetened with stevia.
