Peanut butter chocolate healthy no bake cookies made with half the amount of sugar in traditional no bake cookies and coconut oil instead of butter. Dairy-free, vegan and refined sugar free.
I’ve always loved traditional chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies. I grew up with them as a kid — my mom would make them for us every Christmas and once I was old enough she taught me how to make them myself. We always used the traditional recipe with butter, milk and sugar, but over the years my tastes have changed and I recently set out to create no bake cookies that are dairy-free and made with unrefined sugar.
I made a batch with half the sugar. I actually like this version with coconut sugar way better. That said, if you want to make this recipe sugar-free, feel free to try using stevia in place of the sugar. I haven’t experimented with it myself so I don’t know the appropriate measurement. I’d recommend adding a little bit of stevia at a time until the cookies taste sweet enough to suit your liking.
I will warn you, these cookies might be healthier than traditional no bakes but they’re just as addictive. I think I ate around four every day until they were gone. Oops. Breakfast dessert, lunch dessert, snack and/or dinner dessert – they work well for any and all of the above. 😉
