Are you a fan of no-bake cookies? Soooo good!
But have you ever seen the original recipe?
Talk about fat and sugar bombs … whoa!
Not anymore … I’ve got a healthified version for you that’s a lot less sugar, and – bonus – it’s loaded with fiber and antioxidants.
PLUS (most importantly) these cookies taste DELICIOUS!
Naturally Delicious No-Bake Cookies
(makes 18-20 cookies)
½ cup Nature's Hollow honey alternative
¼ cup unrefined coconut oil
3-4 Tbsp CRAVE cocoa powder
¼ tsp sea salt
½ cup natural peanut butter
2 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)
¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
⅓ cup chopped pitted dates
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, coconut oil, CRAVE cocoa, and sea salt. Stir until the coconut oil is melted and the mixture is fully combined, about 3 minutes.
Stir in the nut butter and chia seeds and cook until the nut butter is smooth and melted, another 3 minutes. Turn the heat off and stir in the oats and dates. Cover the saucepan and let stand for 5 minutes.
Scoop out the “batter” by tablespoons onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so they can firm up before eating.
These should be stored in the fridge as they taste best when they are cold.
I hope you enjoy them!
