Makes 12 cookies

1/4 cup virgin coconut oil (will be solid at room temp)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey (or agave)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup quick oats

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until all melted together. Boil for a couple minutes and take off heat. Stir in oats.  Drop by measuring spoon (Tablespoon) onto waxed paper. Store in freezer for at least 30 minutes

****It will be tempting to eat them before they go in the freezer but WAIT!!!! Have a taste AFTER they’ve been in the freezer for 30 minutes!!!!!

You could also store them in the fridge.
