Chocolate Coconut Haystack Cookies
old fashioned oats, pulsed
flaked, sweetened coconut
1Measure out 3 c. old fashioned oats. Place in food processor and pulse until you have smaller bits of oat flakes. But be careful you don't want oat powder! Combine oat bits and coconut. Set aside.
2In a medium sauce pan, over medium low heat, add butter, sugar, milk, cocoa powder, salt, and Karo syrup.
3Heat to boiling, stirring almost constantly.
4When mixture starts to come to a rolling boil, cook for 5 min. and stir constantly, scraping down sides.
5After 5 min. of cooking time remove from heat. Add vanilla extract and your oat / coconut mixture. Stir well, work quickly.
6Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a small cookie dough scoop) on Silpat mats - about 3 mats will give you enough space. Let cool. Enjoy.
