I saw these cookies on Janet’s blog – Janet is Hungry – back in October. I actually made them a couple of days after seeing her post, but I am just now getting around to posting about them!!
I have made a similar cookie to these in the past. Janet calls them Mud Pies, but I grew up knowing them as no-bake cookies. I know there are several versions out there, and the one I am most familiar with has peanut butter added as well, but Janet’s version sounded delicious so I gave them a try.
They were delicious!! What’s not to love about chocolate, coconut and oats all rolled together?? I’m really glad I saw Janet’s post!!
