Mom-certified: "You always make such a mess when you cook"
You betcha it's time for another Vegan MoFo! Things got a little crazy the last few months (read: I way overscheduled myself) so I haven't posted in a while. No time like the MoFo to get back into the swing of things.

My theme for this year is Coffee & Bars (said in the style of Drop Dead Gorgeous). If you haven't watched it, seriously get on that. You're only 15 years behind schedule.
I'll be focusing primarily on bars, with a few coffee-infused baked goods rounding out the list.
Rochester Bars:
First up are Rochester Bars. They probably have some other official name. Nobody in my family knew what they were called (and presumably brown blobs didn't sound appealing), so my cousin dubbed them "Rochester Bars,'' since that's where we lived at the time. They're ridiculously easy to make, which is basically my unofficial subtheme for this year.
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups oatmeal (I used instant because that's what we had on hand but old fashioned oats should work fine too).
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
Combine all ingredients except the oatmeal and coconut and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Then stir in oatmeal and coconut. Drop large spoonfuls on wax paper and refrigerate. Optional: sprinkle with coconut flakes.
My clean-up crew is ready for another MoFo (no he didn't get any).

Yes, Vegan MoFo is definitely a great push to get back to blogging; I'd been slacking this year as well. These bars look great; nice & simple is always good!

Just came across your blog from the Vegan MoFo feed -- I love your theme!!

I also personally love anything with cocoa and oats, so I'm excited to try this. Cute doggy too :)

Happy MoFo!

These sound fantastic. And a coffee-based theme is going to be awesome! Looking forward to it!
