Healthy No Bake Cookies
1 cup of organic creamy peanut butter no sugar added
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup organic honey (amount depends on your liking)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
6 TBSP organic cocoa powder
1/4 cup organic shredded coconut
2 3/4 cup organic rolled oats (make sure you don't use steel cut oats, it doesn't blend as well)
Begin by heating the peanut butter, coconut oil and honey in a medium saucepan on medium/high heat. If you are using raw honey, make sure not to overheat the honey otherwise you will loose the added benefits of the raw honey. I usually add the honey once the peanut butter and coconut oil are melted together. Make sure to mix all three ingredients well. Once it's all melted together, add the vanilla extract and stir. Next add the cocoa powder, shredded coconut and the rolled oats. Remove from heat and mix well. Spoon onto waxed paper and let cool. I put them in the refrigerator for faster cooling. Once they are completely cooled, put them in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator!
These cookies are full of protein, fiber, and minerals! Cocoa is also a superfood which gives added nutrition so eat eat 'em up guilt free!
I like to keep these healthy no bake cookies on hand any time I have an occasional chocolate or sweet craving! I even take them on vacations with me! Enjoy!
Ok, so I made this the other night and posted it on Facebook and quite a few people wanted the recipe! I thought I would go ahead and share it here! It's super easy to do and you can use all organic ingredients or not, completely your choice. I prefer to use organic as much as possible but sometimes it just isn't feasible due to what I have on hand or what is available in the store. I originally made this with some cream cheese added in, but I think the cream cheese was a little too overwhelming so I'm going to opt out the next time I make it and therefore it will be an "optional" ingredient. Really, any of the ingredients can be optional, it depends on your own likes and tastes! You can also use a gluten free tortilla which would then make it gluten free!
1 spinach and herb tortilla wrap
2-3 thick slices of chicken breast lunch meat (I used Costco's roasted chicken breast from the deli, or you can use one shredded small chicken breast cooked)
2 TBSP of ranch dressing
1 TBSP of hot sauce (or to taste)
~ 1/2 cup Kale
~ 1/2 cup Arugula
1 green onion chopped
1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded (I used white sharp cheddar)
2 TBSP cream cheese (optional)
avocado slices (optional)
I first mixed the ranch and hot sauce together to get an even texture. After you mix it together pour it onto the spinach and herb tortilla (or regular flour tortilla) and spread all over to cover evenly. I then layed the chicken breast down evenly on top of the ranch and hot sauce mixture. Next add the kale and arugula to cover the chicken as evenly as you can. After that, add the green onion and cheddar cheese. If you are adding the cream cheese, spoon onto different sections of the kale and arugula. Next add the avocado slices spaced evenly apart.
When all the ingredients are added, carefully and tightly roll it up together beginning at one end and ending at the opposite end. I used a butter knife to help hold the ingredients in while I was rolling it up, otherwise the ingredients will try to come off the tortilla wrap. When it is tightly wrapped, use the butter knife to cut in the center at an angle.
There you have it... A simple and healthy meal that tastes AMAZING! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
