Birthday Globs

Just a few days ago, my awesome roommate had his birthday. We barely saw each other that day and during our brief interlude I completely spaced that it was the special day! When I realized my mistake a few hours later, I felt terrible and instantly decided I needed to whip up some cookies for him. I was on a time limit and I knew he loved peanut butter so I ended up with this amazing, relatively made-up recipe. I call them globs.

Happy Birthday Raj!

My birthday note

Birthday Glob!

No-Bake Almond  Coconut Chocolate Globs

  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup softened butter
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 3 ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips (I used mini ones but I’d recommend using normal ones or even chunks)

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the sugars, butter, and milk. Bring to a rapidly boil and boil for one minute. The mixture will rise up.

Pull off the heat and immediately whisk in the vanilla, almond butter, and peanut butter. Next, stir in the oats and the coconut.

Adding oats and coconut

Once the mixture has cooled down significantly, add in the chocolate chips. Now, when I did this I added the chips too soon plus they were small so everything melted. It turned out delicious but I wonder what it’d be like to add them later so only some chips melt and some stay whole. Could be a great change!

Mixing in the chocolate

Spoon small globs onto wax paper or a baking mat. Cool completely until they harden and store in the refrigerator.

Yum!

These were quite a hit and I’ll definitely make them again! They were very simple and quick and amazingly delicious – rich though! I’d recommend making your globs smaller than I made mine, they’re so rich it is hard to eat more than one at a time. Entire photo album here.

    Dear Electra,

    Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful pie crust recipe! It was delicious and flakey. I found a recipe for sour cream raisen pie and it too was a big hit for Thanksgiving. Hope your Thanksgiving was great. Keep up the good work, I look forward to your new recipes.

    Kathy
