Sunflower Cookies, and No Bake Cookies

Just wanted to share some recipes with you today. 

No Bake Cookies

1/4 cup almond milk or low fat milk
2 tsp olive oil - I used the kind for baking
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS un-sweetened cocoa powder
1 TBS un-sweetened applesauce
1/4 cup peanut butter - I use Simply Jiff
1 cup rolled oats
dash of sea salt
Mix it all together in bowl. Place wax paper on plate then drop
the mixture by rounded teaspoons. Slightly flatten with back of spoon. 
I keep these in the fridge. Batter makes about 16.

2 cups flour
yellow food coloring, and chocolate jimmies
