Baking For A Sweet Tooth WITHOUT Using Sugar

A recipe for sugar-free, grain-free no-bake cookies 

(See the original recipe here.)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 6 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Handful of cooked quinoa
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax meal

Note:

The original recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of gluten free quick oats, but I threw in some superfoods instead. 

I also let the mixture cool off and then added some Toll House Dark Chocolate chips (53% cacao). Letting it cool off first ensures that the chocolate doesn’t melt and adds some extra crunch!

I would recommend doing a little less than the called for 2/3 cup of coconut oil and honey.

Here are the original directions by frugalfarmwife:

  1. Combine first four ingredients in a sauce pan and warm gently on stove top.
  2. Next, add in the vanilla, oatmeal, and stir well.
  3. Drop by the spoonful onto a saran lined plate and let cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator – if they last that long.

Note: The consistency was a little thin for cookies in my opinion, so I poured it into a brownie pan all at once and made squares instead of cookies
