Sounds very much like my favorite chocolate-oatmeal no-bake cookies.

My recipe calls for quick-cook oatmeal. What do you use in your recipe?

I don't roll 'em in coconut because I can't eat coconut, but sometimes I
stir in a tablespon or two of peanut butter. Yum.

:) Oh, nice!

The recipe calls for havregryn which are apparently rolled oats-- not instant, but I think you make granola with them and they do cook faster than steel cut/old fashioned? It's hard to know the exact equivalent since food is not exactly the same in every country.

Mmmm peanuts. I really miss hazelnuts! You could also coat them in bits of rice crispies and crushed hazelnuts.

Why don't you eat coconut?

I'm allergic/sensitive to coconut, can't eat it.
Also sensitive to the smell of cinnamon but can eat that.
Weird, huh?

I've thought about using rice crispies in place of coconut, but hadn't
thought of crushed hazelnuts. The cookies I make are shaped more like
cookies instead of balls, and not rolled in anything.

I had actually been trying to decide whether to make those for a treat
tonight, or make chocolate molten lava cake in the crockpot when I saw
this thread. :D Now I wish I had some rice crispies on hand!

Wow! You're the first person I know of besides me who has this issue. I *hate* the smell of cinnamon (especially the "fake" cinnamon scents that are so common to candles, air fresheners, etc). But I love chicken mole, and cinnamon toast, etc. . . so strange.

Yeah, this time of year is killer for me because every store seems to have
a display set up right inside the door of those brooms or pine cones with
the artificial cinnamon scent. Yuck!

Last year a checker asked me about my face mask and when I told her
that air fresheners and perfume bother me all year, but Christmas is the
worst with the cinnamon scent, she showed me her red, blistered swollen
hands - from handling the stuff with the fake cinnamon oil on them! :faint:
