Healthy No Bake Cookies

Sometimes you need something a little sweet and chocolatey, but don’t want to go all out for lets say  decadent Oreo Fudge [1]! These little Healthy No Bake Cookies do the trick! No refined sugar, but plenty of sweetness from a wholesome natural energy source – honey.

There are so many ways these cookies can be helpful. For instance, If you need something to throw into the kids lunches and don’t want a sugar-filled sweet, this Healthy No Bake Chocolate Cookie is it! The kiddos think they’re getting a treat, but you know they’re munching on something a little more healthy and nutrient dense.

Headed to the park and need something to take along, grab a few of these cookies! They’ll give you and the kids energy to power through the rest of the afternoon.

For my kids, these are just called “Healthy Cookies” and they eat them up!

Oh, did I mention these no bake cookies also contain delicious creamy peanut butter? So you have that chocolate/peanut butter thing going on…which is like the best combo. Ever!

How To Make Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe comes together pretty quickly in one pot. Yep, you just need a medium pot and you start adding your ingredients. Before you start, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat and set aside. Then, add your almond milk to your pot – I used unsweetened almond milk.

Then, cocoa powder and some chocolate morsels. Finally, add your coconut oil.

You bring these ingredients to a boil. Turn off and immediately and add your instant oats, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and finally your honey.

Now, mix everything together and you’re ready to place your cookies on a baking sheet or silicone baking mat (this is my favorite for everything I bake [2]) with your cookie scoop.

You can either keep them in their scoop from, or flatten out the mounds to look more like a traditional cookie, it’s up to you.

Medium Pot [4] – a non-stick pot is a necessity in the kitchen. I use it every day!

Silpat Baking Mat [2]  – hands down, one of the most used items in my kitchen! If you want perfect cookies (crispy edges, soft inside), this is what you need to use!

Cookie Scoop [5] – I love the ease of use of using a cookie scoop. Evenly proportioned cookies every time! Plus, it works for anything you need to get into a cupcake pan (muffins, etc.)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any other type of milk)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate morsels
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 cups instant oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or a silpat mat. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan on medium heat, place your almond milk, cocoa powder, chocolate morsels, and coconut. Bring to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and add the instant oats, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and honey to the pot. With a spatula or wooden, spoon stir the ingredients together.  Mixture will be thick.
  • With a cookie scoop or spoon, drop heaping tablespoons of no bake cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet or Silpat mat. Gently flatten the mounds into a cookie shape.  To allow the oats to soften and the flavors to blend, place cookies in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Notes

These cookies do best if they are refrigerated – they will soften up at room temperature (still yummy, just slightly messier).
The cookies will keep in a airtight container (layered between sheets of wax or parchment paper) in the refrigerator for a week or more.
