Healthy Haystacks

The original recipe comes from a church-fundraising cookbook, printed back in 1982 called Simply Divine. Yes, my family never throws away anything. As you can see from the picture, the recipe is well-loved. Haystacks1 That is the recipe I based this on, but since it’s basically consisting of sugar and fat (thus the deliciousness) I went hog-wild with healthy substitutions. Ingredients: Wet: -       1 cup coconut oil -       ½ cup coconut milk -       ¼ cup agave (or maple syrup, honey, whatever) -       3 tbsp cocoa -       1 tsp vanilla Dry: -       ½ cup quinoa -       1 cup oats -       ½ cup coconut Haystacks4 Instructions:
  1. Mix wet ingredients together in a saucepan, bring to boil.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Pour the hot mixture onto the dry ingredients and mix.
  4. Scoop into balls onto a cookie sheet, allow to cool, about an hour.
