Healthy No Bake Cookies

Healthy No Bake Cookies

I remember as a kid making no bake cookies.  One of my daughters loved making no bake cookies too.  I think she liked making them because they are quick and easy.  And YUMMY!

I wanted to have adults and children test these cookies before I shared them with you.  I took some to my grandchildren.  Both of my cute grandsons loved them!

My grandson had a friend over and he asked if the friend could have one.  I said if it was okay with the friends grandma then it was okay with me.  He went to ask the grandma and said “Can she have a cookie?  They don’t have sugar in them!”  Smart boy!  🙂

To keep these no bake cookies healthy we need to use ingredients that are whole and don’t have the junk in them.  I will also share links with you on why these cookies are healthy.  So many health benefits from a simple cookie.

Your honey should be raw, unfiltered honey.  There are a lot of health benefits with honey.  You can find out what some of the health benefits are here.

Coconut oil should be extra virgin coconut oil.  This is the kind I buy.  I love buying my coconut oil on Amazon!  I have it set up to get automatic delivery once a month.  If you do this you get a small discount.  I also shared some of the health benefits of coconut oil here.

I use raw cacao powder in all my cooking that calls for cocoa powder.  There are SO many health benefits from the cacao bean when it is raw.  I shared some of those benefits with this recipe.

For your peanut butter you want the only ingredients to be peanuts and salt.  One bad thing about using peanut butter that is natural is it tends to separate.  I found that if I put it in the fridge upside down then when I open it to use it the liquid is now on the bottom instead of the top.
