No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

When it's too hot to turn on the oven, but you still need wholesome, sweet snacks the whole family will enjoy...

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 24 cookies


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup All Natural Peanut Butter (use sunflower seed butter for a nut-free version)

  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup

  • 1/3 cup Raw Cacao Powder

  • 1 1/2 cups Oats (I like to use sprouted oats like the One Degree brand from Costco when using oats in a recipe where they won't be cooked. This makes them easier to digest).

  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

  • 1/3 tsp Unrefined Salt

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil


Directions:


In a small saucepan over low heat add the peanut butter, maple syrup and raw cacao powder. Stir to combine until just heated through and somewhat dried out in texture. Allow it to cool slightly. Note: the peanut butter should be runny and not dry (like from the bottom of the jar). If it is dry, add it to the saucepan with 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil and mix well until combined and runny, and THEN add the maple syrup and cacao powder as above.


Pour the peanut butter mixture into a bowl and add the oats, coconut, unrefined salt, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Mix well with a spoon or your hands.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the cookie dough by the heaping tablespoon-ful and form into balls and then flatten with your hands. Place on the baking sheet and repeat until all of the dough is used.


Place them into the freezer to set, about 2 hours. Remove and place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. Keep them stored in the freezer until ready to eat, allowing them to thaw for 5 minutes before serving.


Enjoy!
