No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


2 cups white sugar
6 tbsp. coco
½ cup butter
½ milk
½ tsp. vanilla
3 cups oats

In a large sauce pan combine sugar, coco, butter and milk. Bring to a small boil. Add vanilla. Then remove from heat.

Add oats (I add a cup at a time) Make sure oats are covered well. You might have to add more oats because sometimes the batter is too wet. It should have medium
Wetness to it.

Drop by spoon pan that is covered with wax paper.

Tip: - The size that you drop will be the exact size of your cookie

Then refrigerate until set and the cookie can just slip of the paper. Keep refrigerated.

Banana Bread (from Purity cookbook)


Preheat oven to 350˚

2 cups flour 1 egg

½ cup white sugar ¾ milk

3 tsp. baking powder ¼ oil

½ tsp. baking soda 1 ½ bananas (I add more)

½ tsp. salt

Mix dry ingredients into a bowl, then add wet ingredients. I usually add the bananas last to see how much extra I can add depending on the moisture level. It should be a sticky batter.

If you have kids or love chocolate you can add chocolate chips to the batter too.

Then pour into loaf pan. Bake for 65-70 min. Until the bread turns golden brown and pulls away from sides.

Tip: - this bread can burn very quickly if you do not watch it near the end.

Serves: 1 loaf
