No Bake PB Cookies

School is back, sports are back and we are back on track with some consistent schedules – woohoo!!

Decided to take an old recipe and replace a few ingredients and ended up with a delicious result.  These were tested on my teenagers and a couple families. There was a request for the recipe, so I am finally getting to it!

Super easy, quick and no baking involved. Even more of a reason to try them!

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons unsweetened nut milk (I used almond milk)
3 tablespoons cacao powder
generous 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (don’t skimp with Aunt Jemima or Log Cabin, etc.)
1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup pure peanut butter (no oil/salt added, don’t skimp with Skippy or Jiff, etc.)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Directions:

In a pot, add the syrup, nut milk and cacao powder and bring to a bubble, stirring frequently.

Let it bubble for about 1 minute, continuing to stir.  Then turn off heat and add the oats, peanut butter, vanilla and chocolate chips.  Stir well to combine.

Scoop out desired size onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  I did a generous tablespoon size and then gently pressed them together and then flattened them but you can make them how you want.

Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes and enjoy.

Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator or in freezer.

Nut Butter Bombs

Sinful, maybe.  Decedent, maybe.  Heavenly, maybe.  Down right freakin amazing, heck YAASS!

Most of all, these nut butter bombs are healthy and nutritious.  They are rich, gooey, sweet and salty (if you use it for a topping) and the ideal treat to keep stocked in your freezer for banishing those sweet tooth cravings. Not to mention, one of the easiest treats to make.
