Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Print Friendly


These no bake cookies are perfect for a quick treat, especially in the summer when you may want to avoid turning on the oven. The cookie is mildly sweet and gives the benefit of fiber as well as protein.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies (no bake)

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil or Butter
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 4 teaspoons Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Rice Milk, Almond Milk, OR Water
  • 2 dashes of Sea Salt

Heat the coconut oil, honey, cocoa, rice milk, and sea salt over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minutes and remove from heat. Then add:

  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Butter (no sugar)
  • 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Oatmeal

Stir well and drop by the tablespoon onto parchment paper, glass plate, or wax paper. Makes about 12 cookies.

Alternatives

  • Carob Oatmeal Cookies: simply substitute Carob Powder for the Cocoa.
  • Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Cookies: Add a few tablespoons of unsweetened coconut when adding in the flour and oatmeal.

{Update 10/8/2012: I increased the rice milk to 3T due to the dryness of the cookies when only using 2T. I’ve also substituted water for the rice milk when I didn’t have any. It didn’t change the flavor or the way they turned out. Agave may substitute well for the honey, but I haven’t tried it yet.}
