Healthy No-Bake Cookies

Posted on

Truly bliss in a bite, these healthy no bake cookies are made with chocolate and peanut butter. Easy and delicious, they are an all-time fan favorite!

Here’s our take on chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies, inspired by a sweet visit from our dear friend Ashlae of Oh Ladycakes. Our version features a soft peanut buttery drizzle topping, so they’re almost an inside-out peanut butter cup. Made with maple syrup, coconut oil, and oats, they’re all natural and a play on a healthy no bake cookie. Even better, make the mini version for a smaller serving size.

They’re also naturally sweet, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free, and while all those adjectives might sound alarming, the taste is just plain bliss. We just served them as a sweet treat at the end of a meal, and when asked how they tasted, our guest pronounced “heaven”. True story, and even without coercion!
