It seems ironic that our baby-sitter would show up Saturday night with the ingredients and recipe for No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Coconut Cookies, given the current state of my oven. Too bad for my kiddos they never got to make them with the famed Miss Angela because we ended up staying in with our sickie and sent our sitter home. After Grace was feeling better, we pulled out all our ingredients yesterday and gave these a shot. And since they were a hit, and since I cannot currently bake, I suppose we may just have to make them again!
Miss Angela's No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal & Coconut Cookies

1/4 cup Spectrum shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1. Bring the milk, shortening, sugar, and cocoa to a boil for two minutes.
2. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, oatmeal, and coconut. Mix thoroughly.
3. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let dry. Enjoy!
