No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I tried. I tried to make it through January without any cookies, but I just. couldn’t. do. it. I had a hankering, but alas, there were no more eggs! What’s a girl to do?

Make no-bake cookies, obviously.

So I made these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Let’s face it, chocolate and peanut butter were meant to be together in life! They are seriously so good. And you know what else? They actually aren’t too bad for you! I used all-natural peanut butter, coconut oil instead of butter, and instead of flour, oats! For the sweetener, you can use agave nectar or maple syrup and can play around with the measurements to reach your desired level of sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3-1/2 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups oats (use GF oats to make gluten free)

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together the melted coconut oil, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and the sweetener until smooth and combined.
  2. In another bowl, stir together the salt, cocoa powder, and oats. Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients until well-combined.
  3. Spoon out about 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of the cookie dough and roll into balls and arrange on a cookie sheet. Use a fork or the back of a spoon to lightly flatten the cookies. Then chill for about 2 hours. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container in the fridge.
