We love No-Bake Cookies.

The Best {Healthy}er No Bake Cookies!!! Must try!!! ~LadyWithTheRedRocker~

Let me re-phrase that.

WE. LOVE. NO-BAKES!!!!

I make them way more than I should.

I mean, seriously, they are the best cookie, EVER!

Am I right? Yes, I know I am. No need to answer.

But, the bad thing is they have sooo much sugar in them.  Boo! (Why can’t the things I love be sugar free?)

Soooo… I came up with a healthier version of No-Bakes and the kids loved ‘em. Even the hubby was asking for more. There is no sugar added, just honey. (Don’t worry. You can’t tell these are made with honey.)

So good.

 The Best {Healthy}er No-Bake Cookies

1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
*1/2 cup nuts or ground flax seed or wheat germ etc. (can replace this amount with oats)
*2/3 cups coconut or dry cereal etc. (can replace this amount with oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

*You can substitute these ingredients for any dry ingredients that you have on hand, or what you like. You can also  replace these amounts with oats if you prefer the traditional No-Bakes.

In a large mixing bowl, mix oats, chocolate chips, and the rest of the dry ingredients and set aside.

In a sauce pan, heat peanut butter, honey, and, cocoa powder over low heat until just bubbling, stirring constantly. (Do not overcook because the peanut butter will stick to the pan and burn. You just want to heat the mixture until it is really hot, just barely a bubble.)

Once peanut butter mixture starts to bubble, immediately remove from heat and add vanilla.

Pour peanut butter mixture over dry ingredients and stir well, making sure the chocolate chips have melted completely.

On wax paper plop spoonfuls of cookie mixture and allow to cool until set, about 2 hours. Store in airtight container.

  1. ohhh these look delicious and easy too!.. The peanut butter part scares me though, Im notorious for burning my pots and pans.. LOL Im willing to give it a try though :)

  2. I found this site by browsing. wondering if there is a way I can subscribe for your recipes hon. I use to make these all the time. But my boyfriend is Diabetic 1 with insulin so I need to be careful on what I use in recipes. But I had to go through some recipes of yours. They all look so good. I have also saved the recipe here as well. I will fix them at Christmas time and give them to my kids when they come down from up north. I am from Michigan. Thank you.
