Saucepan Cookies

August 30, 2011

Two no-bake recipes in a row?  That wasn’t my original plan.  But my favourite fair trade company, Camino, is having a recipe contest for recipes using their Cuisine Camino products.  I submitted three recipes, one for my chocolate lava cake, one for my chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and the third being these saucepan cookies.  I made them earlier this summer, indeed using Camino cocoa powder.

Saucepan Cookies

(makes about 3 dozen)

2 cups white sugar, evaporated cane juice (organic sugar), or Camino golden cane sugar
6 tbsp cocoa powder, preferably Camino
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1 cup coconut, preferably Camino
1 tsp vanilla

In a large saucepan or dutch oven, combine sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter.  Stirring frequently, heat over medium heat until bubbly.  Continue to heat 1 minute longer, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, stir in remaining ingredients.  Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment paper and let cool.

These are gluten-free (if you are being really careful about it, buy gluten-free oats), and could easily be veganized if you substitute non-dairy milk and margarine.  This recipe is easily halved, if you don’t have lots of friends or coworkers to share them with,  or they can be frozen.

    Since when are they called “Saucepan cookies?” We call them Haystacks. The photo was making me hungry and I just ate! 😀

      When Mum sent the recipe to me, the title said Saucepan Cookies. They don’t look very haystack-like anyway. 😉

    These remind me of no-bake cookies too. Looks good!
