No-Bake Nutella Oaties
1/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup homemade or regular Nutella
1 1/2 cups oats (I used old-fashioned, but for a less chewy texture use rolled)
In a medium saucepan, stir together the sugar, oil, and milk and bring to a boil. Boil for two minutes. Stir in the Nutella until melted, then the oats until coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and chill until set. Makes as many or as few as you want, depending on size. This makes about 16 tablespoonfuls of dough. Can be doubled or halved.
This is an extremely quick, easy, adaptable, forgivable recipe, that is vegan if you use homemade vegan Nutella and gluten free if you use gluten free oats. They are also fairly healthy, very tasty, and addictive. Whole oats are more nutritious, and I like the chewier texture but if you don't use rolled oats. Feel free to add some coconut, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.
