I grew up in a home that had no bake cookies a couple of times a month! So, as you can imagine, I crave that flavor periodically and it totally brings me back. This is quite a sweet dessert and isn’t for everyone, but was something I didn’t want to give up. Because you know that whole thing about me and peanut butter….<3

But here’s the thing about these cookies…

They are absolutely sweet from the honey, but they don’t affect me the same way like the original recipe does using the white sugar. Like…I don’t feel addicted to them. While the flavor is fabulous and I really enjoy them, I can have a couple of cookies and feel satisfied. Love that!

But again, they do have added sweetener so don’t eat the whole pan and think they’re healthy. Ha! The point is, when we use healthier ingredients (not highly processed), you’ll have better health and not feel so addicted to food or sugar.

To know what those ingredients are exactly, I give it all away in my two grocery lists:

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup pure honey
  • 2/3 cup 100% peanut butter (we like crunchy PB)
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1/4-1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Depending on how chocolate-y you like it!)
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats (old fashion will work in a pinch too!)
Servings: cookies
Instructions
  1. Line 2 baking sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine the honey, peanut butter, and coconut oil until smoothly melted together.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, oats, cocoa, and salt. Mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Use a small ice cream scoop or a spoon to drop cookies onto parchment paper. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes so they can set up. (Sometimes we are too excited and skip this step all together. But, if you want them set up, this is essential.)
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
