A healthier version of my favorite No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies! Free of refined sugar, fudgy and delicous!!
We finally got rid of all the Halloween candy at our house! It took some serious convincing but the boys finally agreed to trading out their candy for a new toy. Graham actually had no say in it, lol, and might be the most devasted when he wakes up this morning asking for “choc-ate mommy?” and I get to tell him it’s all gone. So sorry little buddy. That babe’s gotta sweet tooth!
But what I do as soon as the candy is gone? Make these babies!! Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies!
These have been on the blog for a while but I’m slowly updating some old posts with better photos. Uh, well, hopefully they are better! I slightly adapted this recipe from Vanilla & Lace the first time I made them.
These are made with honey (or agave), coconut oil, oats, and all natural peanut butter! I’ve even used Pbfit and they turned out fabulous. They need to be refrigerated, but they are rich and fudgy and seriously one of my favorite “better for you” treats! I’m all about making recipes that are pretty healthy and use ingredients that are just better for you!
And since it’s the weekend, you probably should definitely try them!
