Healthier Preacher (no-bake) Cookies

I'll always love the original preacher cookie recipe, but today I whipped up a healthier version for the kids when they came in from the snow.

*2 c. sugar
*1/2 c. coconut oil (melted, then measured)
*1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk
*1/2 c. cocoa
*2 c. old-fashioned oats
*1 tsp. vanilla
*optional 1/2 c. nut butter

Bring sugar, coconut oil and almond milk to a full rolling boil. Continue to boil, whisking constantly, for three minutes. Turn off heat. Whisk in cocoa and vanilla. Stir in oats. Spoon onto wax paper to cool. (If using nut butter, stir it in right before the oats).
