What You Need

  • Slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/4 cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of unrolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Wax paper

What You Do

  1. Mix Sugar, Butter, Milk, and Cocoa
    Mix first four ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat. Boil for two minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Stir in Vanilla and Oats
    Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and oats. Mix well. Allow to cool a bit so your child won’t get burned while making the paws, but batter should still be warm when you go to step 3.
  3. Make Bear Paws
    To make a paw, drop a tablespoon of batter onto wax paper. Press five almond slivers into one side of the paw to make the claws. Allow to cool completely before digging in.
    Recipe makes 15 cookies.
