~ N ~ the kitchen with Sweet Magnolias Farm "Chocococonut No-Bake Refrigerator Cookies"

Hi there Y'all...
Well it's been a few weeks since we spent a little time in the Kitchen ..and this week I was craving some of our Sweet Magnolias Farm "Chococonut No-Bake Refrigerator Cookies" ..
So I whipped up a double batch and thought I would share how to make these divine little snack cookies ..
So so Simple, So so Healthy and So so Good ! 
 2 tbsp. Cocoa Powder
3/4 Cup Whole Oats (quick oats can be substituted)
1/4 Cup plus a few tblsp of Oat Flour (make your own by blending into a fine powder in your blender or in your food processor just use your oats)
1/4 cup Sugar (I use a little less)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
2 tbsp. water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 Cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut
So first Off I want to let you know that you can substitute vegetable oil in place of the coconut oil which is how I first began making these. No doubt they were very good but I found that our Local Costco is now carrying Coconut oil and I wanted to try it as I have been reading about all it's health benefits. I used it in these cookies and I am more in love with these cookies now than ever. They not only taste even better but they set up a lot better with the coconut oil.
I also opted to use the "Special Dark" Cocoa .. but they can be made with regular cocoa which is what I started making them with ..they are really good both ways.
And I'm a fan of Ghiradelli Semi Sweet Chips ...  I just put the 1/4 cup of these in my blender and let the blender chop them up a little bit to make smaller chips out of them. there was some fine powder that came out too and I just poured it all in to the cookie dough.
So here's how ya make em !

In a mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients...

Stir all your dry ingredients together until well mixed.

Then add your Oil. If you opt to use the coconut oil like I do ..and it's your first time using it. You'll find when you open the container that it's hard somewhat like shortening.  You will need to scoop out a 1/4 cup and melt it either in the microwave or on the stove on low. A 1/4 cup of the solid coconut oil will equal a 1/4 cup of  it melted.

Once it's melted you can pour it over the dry ingredients.

In a measuring cup add your water and vanilla and mix ..then pour that over the dry ingredients.

Next Add your 1/4 cup of Sweetened Shredded Coconut.

Then Mix everything together.

Once all your ingredients are well combined .. use a spoon to scoop out the dough and roll into about 1 inch balls .. or thereabouts. I just roll em and they all end up different sizes since we're not baking them it really doesn't matter.
Then Place them in a pan and either refrigerate them or My Favorite .. put them in the Freezer ! I love that they harden up and get really cold ! 

I love to have a few of these after my lunch each day or dinner.. They are seriously Soooo Good ! ..
You could even add some of your favorite crushed nuts in for another flavor if you like !

From our Kitchen to Yours ..
Enjoy !
