“Healthier” no bake cookies
For those of you wanting a delicious, chocolatey, peanut buttery treat that is on the healthier side…here you go!!
*WARNING: these little guys are super CALORIE DENSE and they go down very easy!! So, consider yourself warned! I recommend keeping them in the freezer and allowing yourself one per day.
Also note, you can use whatever kind of nut butter you prefer!
- 1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut oil 🌴
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cup oats (not instant please!)
- 1/2 cup DARK chocolate (72% or more)
Melt chocolate, coconut oil, peanut butter & honey in medium pan on medium. Stir frequently.
When chocolate is completely melted and all ingredients are mixed well, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla & oatmeal. Mix well.
Drop spoonfuls of batter onto parchment paper or foil. Place in fridge or freezer to set.
Again: these are very calorie dense! Regardless of the healthier ingredients you can very quickly over do it with these scrumptious treats.
Makes about 24, depending on size of spoonfuls of course!
