Almond Coconut Instant Oatmeal Cookies

You have probably tasted Instant Oatmeal Cookies before. Some people call them Stove Top Cookies or One Minute Oatmeal Cookies or No Bake Cookies. I just made this recipe with a twist for my family and they really liked it, so I thought I would share it with you. They turned out very glossy, I am not sure if that was from the coconut milk or the almond butter. The flavor reminded me of a mounds. 

1 stick butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup crunchy almond butter
1/2 tsp. coconut flavoring
1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring
3 cups uncooked rolled oats
**I prefer the Old Fashioned oatmeal

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat melt butter, add sugar, cocoa and milk. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Set timer. Remove from heat. Add almond butter and flavorings. Stir well. Stir in oatmeal. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let cool. Makes about 36 bite size cookies.
