No time to bake? Try No Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies!

This is my most popular recipe of all time… who knew?

These timeless kid-friendly gems are so easy. Just mix, let dry and enjoy! The blend of coconut, chocolate and oats is a simple and easy treat for kids and the kids-at-heart.

I love to make these as an addition to a cookie platter over the holidays. The colour and shape really adds great texture to the presentation. They are moist and chewy, when your other cookies may be crispy and light.

    Im wondering how you can recommend these to your readers as healthy for kids when the first ingredient is 2 full cups of sugar? That’s not healthy at all. Even if using a natural sweetener such as agave, honey, or organic maple – two cups is a TON. The average cookie recipe calls for only 1 cup.
