I have what can only be described as a cookie obsession and for as long as I can remember No Bake Cookies have been apart of holiday baking for my mom and I. This year I saw a recipe that was a little different from the one we usually use and I wanted to give it a try.
The results?…… My husband LOVED them! As he was shoving 3 in his face and saying “these are so good” lol! So I guess I will be making these again. Hahaha! They didn’t even make it to the event I originally made them for, or even to a container. they stayed on the parchment paper on the cooling racks un harmed in the refrigerator. Nothing moved them, they weren’t in the way, they were hilariously treated as sacred space. I don’t know if Aiden had one but Charleston LOVE them too.
Different than our normal recipe, this one did not call for brown sugar. I thought that this would really take away from the cookie and although it did taste a little different they were still sweet due to the honey or maple syrup that is in the cookie. Plus (a huge plus) normally, because of the caramel that gets hardened in the pan clean up is a beast. THIS time I just rinsed the pot out and tossed it in the dishwasher and was DONE!!
Here is the Recipe!!
No Bake Cookies, 21 Day Fix Approved
1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
3/4 cup Honey or Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Refined Coconut Oil
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cup Oatmeal
6 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
Melt the Peanut Butter, Honey and Coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring. Once melted remove from heat and add the Vanilla, Oatmeal and Cocoa Powder. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto parchment paper and then transfer to the refrigerator to harden.
I slid the parchment paper onto cooling racks and then was able to get 2 levels of cookies on one rack.
** tip of you are having problems keeping the parchment paper from rolling up, wet your hand (or with a wet rag) and dampen the counter below the edge of the paper and press the paper down. This will stick it to the counter just enough to hold it in place**
This one batch makes so many that this would be a great cookie or baked goodie for Christmas Presents! I think that for this year for teachers and neighbors that this is what I am going to do. I love baking but a girl can only have so many dozens of cookies in her house at once! Even a cookie addict like me, LOL!
