For a dessert challenged baker like myself, no-bake cookies are a no-brainer. And macaroons are one of my favorites. These are very good, but heavy on the cocoa and oatmeal. I would like to find a recipe that lets the coconut shine through.
The recipe calls for setting the cookies on wax paper, a commodity I seldom have in the house. I was about to add that to the shopping list when it occurred to me I could probably use the banana leaves that have been sitting in my freezer. Sure enough, once thawed out and softened with coconut oil they worked just fine.
The recipe says 12 to 24 cookies depending on whether you use a tablespoon or teaspoon to spoon them out, but I got nearly 4 dozen using a tablespoon.

This lives up to its name. A nice granola and easy to make. I like the generous amount of coconut in this one. The only drawback with granola is that it needs frequent attention to prevent burning. So choose a time to make it where you will not be interrupted by other chores.
