Vegan no bake chocolate, peanut butter and coconut oatmeal cookies

imageThis no bake cookie recipe is perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth!  Chocolate, peanut butter and coconut is my new favorite combination!  Surprisingly easy and healthy snacks that are perfect for a weekend of Netflix and chill.

what you will need-

image1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1/4 cup shredded coconut flakes

1 cup oatmeal (you can use a gluten free variety to make the recipe gluten free)

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons vegan mini dark chocolate chips (optional but recommended to use for a topping)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Put the coconut oil, almond milk, sugar and cocoa powder into a medium pot and set aside.

imageMeasure out the coconut flakes, oatmeal, peanut butter, vanilla extract and chocolate chips and put in separate containers.  This will make adding them later much easier.

imageTake the pot with the coconut oil, almond milk, sugar and cocoa powder and put it on the stove.  Heat on medium heat until it begins to boil gently.  Stir constantly and allow it to simmer for one minute.

After it has been simmering for one minute, remove from heat (or just turn off stove if you are using a gas stovetop).  Add in the coconut flakes, oatmeal, peanut butter and vanilla extract.  Stir until combined completely.

imageScoop the mixture onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet.  I used a big flat plate because it’s prettier.

imageTop with the chocolate chips (again, optional but I recommend it).

allow to harden at room temperature for at least a half an hour.

imageEnjoy!

note- if they are a little bit crumbly and tend to fall apart, stick them in the freezer for a few minutes to make them less likely to fall apart.
