These no bake oatmeal cookies are an easy-to-make healthier treat that tastes just like peanut butter cups!
Prep Time:15 minutes
Total Time:15 minutes
Yield:18 Cookies 1x
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 cups rolled oats
Heat the maple syrup or honey, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and vanilla over medium heat. Once bubbling, stir in the peanut butter. Let cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until the mixture is smooth and fully incorporated. Remove from heat.
Stir the oats into the peanut butter honey mixture, then take about 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time, roll into a ball, then place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and flatten into a cookie.
Refrigerate for 2-4 hours, until set, then enjoy!
You can substitute the peanut butter for any nut butter here, including almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or cashew butter!
