I make these all the time. Quick, easy and so good!

H I. These are so good & so easy to make.

Could I use Splenda instead of sugar? Also, could I use extra oats instead of coconut? Thank you !

Yes and yes

These are awesom quick cookies.. We call them 2 minute cookies as only boil for 2 min.. also instead of cocoa, can use peanut butter, and at christmas get the cherry chips for beautiful red cookies...

Seems like a lot of sugar. Any chance of using half or less

Why don't you try it to find out?

This is the one I've always used. I love the pb in it!!! 1/4 cup Cocoa 2 cups Granulated Sugar 1/2 cup Butter 1/2 cup Milk 1 teaspoon Vanilla Part 2 1 cup Peanut Butter 1 1/2 cups Coconut 3 cups Quick Oatmeal

I just asked for this recipe before I read this one. This is exactly like the one I lost. These are great. Instead of coconut, I sometimes will put chopped walnuts. Hope this helps

We like these a lot. I just put the waxed paper on an open place on my counter to cool and harden. I would hesitate to put dried fruit in instead of coconut; it might add too much moisture for them to harden nicely, Mardi

I wonder is there's something else you could use to replace the coconut. My family doesn't like it. Some kind of nuts, maybe?

If your family doesn't like coconut, do what you suggested, adding some kind of chopped nuts. Did you consider adding white chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips? Another thought might be to add raisins or some other dried fruit, cut-up if necessary. Just my thoughts... peace!

I have never used coconut and still great quick cookie.. eveyone loves them.

Do you ever have available the nutrition, calorie, etc. information for your recipes?

There are lots of calorie counters online. Just look up each ingredient and add up the calories. Simple!

This would be a very nice feature to add to this website and would allow us to compare various recipes caloric, fat content and nutritional content quickly and easily in order to choose the one we would like to make.
