I’m always looking for healthy quick and easy recipes to have on hand when hunger strikes! Something the kids can grab when they’ve got a craving for something sweet or an after-dinner snack. These healthy no-bake cookies tick all the boxes. Quick and easy to make, yummy with just the right amount of sweetness. The best part is they require NO BAKING. A lot of times I’ll just prep the first steps and the kids can do the rest!
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
2 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Shredded Coconut
1 cup and 1/4 Old Fashioned Oats
Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Place a small pot over medium heat. Add in the peanut butter and coconut oil.
Stir until smooth and then add in the coconut or brown sugar and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is about to boil. Make sure not to boil.
Remove the pan from heat and add in the cacao powder and stir constantly until all the powder is well incorporated. Add in the vanilla and salt. Stir in the honey. Mix in the coconut flakes and old fashioned oats.
Let the mixture cool a little and then scoop out the mixture with a spoon to form into a cookie shape onto the baking sheet.
Place the baking sheets in the fridge for about an hour, until the cookies harden.
These are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge and will keep for up to a week.
Makes 12-14 cookies.
