One of my favorite childhood treats was chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies. They were one of the few treats my papa would make. My favorite part was licking the pot while they set in the freezer. I haven't had them in years because I don't really eat like that anymore. When my husband asked for cookies the other night when it was 85 degrees and roasting in our house, I was like "um, there is no way I am using the oven." I remembered these delicious cookies and thought to myself, "I could totally make an upgraded, healthier version." You can use regular cacao powder in place of the Cacao Magic, but the cacao nibs add an extra delicious crunch as well as protein (each serving of cacao magic has 10 g of plant based protein) and superfoods. The cold brew adds an amazing element of flavor, but can also be omitted.
- 3 T butter, ghee or coconut oil
- 3 T coconut sugar
- 3 T The Philosophie Cacao Magic (use code "bodybliss15")
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (I used Thrive Market)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup GF oats
- 2 T Chameleon Cold Brew Mocha flavor (or any cold brew)
In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut sugar. Stir to combine and add cacao powder and cold brew. Once everything is melted and combined, remove from heat. Fold in the oats. With a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop cookies onto a lined cookie sheet. Press down on the tops to flatted into a disk shape. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Devour with zero guild because you're eating superfoods and protein :)
Makes 10 cookies.
