Do you ever eat something, then think back into your childhood and have a great memory? These cookies do just that for my husband. He remembers being with his siblings and making these cookies. Funny thing is that most of the time, they would just grab a spoon and eat them right out of the pot.
There are so many different names for these cookies… Mud clusters, frogs, No-bake chocolate cookies… Whatever you want to call them, there is one thing for sure. They taste great and are simple to make!
Mud Clusters (Gluten Free/ No-Bake/ Dairy Free/ Egg Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 c. palm sugar
1/2 c. coconut oil (or butter if dairy is tolerated)
1/2 c. milk alternative ( I use coconut milk)
3 c. gluten free oats
1 c. unsweetened coconut
6 Tbsp. raw cacao or cocoa
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla
In a medium size pot on medium heat, add sugar, coconut oil and milk and bring mixture to a boil stirring constantly. Boil for up to one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Mix and drop by spoonfuls ( I use a one inch scoop) onto parchment paper. Wet hands and help form clusters if necessary.
Chill cookies one at least one hour. Store cookies in the fridge for up to one week.
Makes approximately 36 one inch cookies. These cookies freeze well.
