Butterfied Oaties


  • 1 cup toasted rolled oats.  I just toast them in the toaster oven set on 350° for a few minutes.  Watch them as they burn easily.
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) pastured salted butter, softened
  • 3 to 4 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 dark chocolate bar, chopped or 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • Pre-heat oven to 325°.
  • Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Scoop cookie dough by TBSP (I actually use a melon ball scooper) onto parchment or Silpat lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, and then I just pick them up and form into balls before placing on cooling rack.
  • Refrigerate.
