No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I remember growing up making no-bake chocolate cookies with mom. They were one of my very favorite things for us to make. Mostly because they were delicious, but also because they were simple, she let me eat the batter because it didn’t have raw eggs, and they were ready pretty quickly.

These days I would never eat those. I’ve trained my body to crave healthy, good-for-you desserts. This is one of my favorite, simple recipes that everyone loves. Make these and take them to your next get together!

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 2 Tbsp honey (you can increase up to 1/2 cup for your desired sweetness)

  3. Stir in oats and mix until well coated.
  4. Form into small 1 Tbsp size balls.
