An easy recipe for naturally sweetened, vegan no-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies!
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 3 tbsp cacao powder (or dutch cocoa)
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- 4 cups thick rolled oats
Heat all ingredients (except vanilla extract and oats) together in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat until combined and starting to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract then oats. If batter is too thick and not all the oats are getting soaked in the chocolate batter, stir in an additional 2 tbsp of almond milk.
Use a medium sized cookie scoop to dollop on a lined baking sheet (I usually get 2 dozen cookies). Flatten slightly, then place tray in freezer to chill for at least 20 minutes.
Store in and enjoy right out of the freezer. These will get melty at room temperature.
