NO BAKE COOKIES RECIPE WITHOUT MILK

I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan and have a special place in my heart for the state of Michigan.

To this day we take at least a couple of trips back to my old stomping ground along with a summer vacation to Traverse City.

I love visiting Kalamazoo because it brings back so many good childhood memories going to school, playing sports and hanging out with my friends.

I recently posted a picture of these No Bake Cookie Recipe Without Milk on Instagram and had a high school friend mention that she had recently been dreaming of them and she remembered eating them in Michigan. These are a super easy cookie recipe.

I always loved coming home from school and having these no bake cookies waiting for me. 

The nice thing is you can make these in a few easy steps and they are perfect for hot summer days because you don’t have to heat the oven.

I love the mixture of peanut butter with the cocao powder, oats and coconut. They are just the right amount of sweetness to cure your sweet tooth and create the perfect treat. 

We love making easy treats like these no bake cookies, easy cake mix sugar cookies, dirt pudding or these chocolate crinkle cookies.

A lot of the inspiration for my recipes comes from places I have traveled to, memories from childhood and family recipes.

Recently I was craving no bake oatmeal cookies and knew I had to recreate them with a slightly healthier twist using simple ingredients.

These no bake cookies use eight ingredients and nothing needs to be baked, making them easy and the perfect sweet treat. 

HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE COOKIES?

BOIL COCONUT OIL, HONEY AND COCOA POWDER: Start by boiling the coconut oil, honey and cocoa powder for 2 minutes over medium heat.

ADD THE REMAINING INGREDIENTS: From there you will mix it in with the peanut butter, 2 cups of oats, shredded coconut, chia seeds and vanilla into the chocolate mixture. 

DROP THE COOKIES ON A BAKING SHEET: Line a cookie sheet {it might take two cookie sheets} with parchment paper or wax paper and use a cookie scoop to scoop the cookie mixture onto the cookie sheets.

COOL THE COOKIES: Cool the cookies on the counter until they are hard. If you want you can also refrigerate the cookies after they are cooled down.

Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the refrigerator.

WAYS TO MODIFY THESE NO BAKE COOKIES:

You could sub the peanut butter with almond butter, cashew butter or a seed butter like sun butter. 

Chocolate chips would be a nice addition to these cookies. 

I used creamy peanut butter but you could use crunchy peanut butter to add some texture. 

You could use gluten-free oats instead of regular oats.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE NO BAKE COOKIES TO SET?

You will want your no bake cookies to set for at least 30 minutes or until they are hard.

You can also put them in the fridge to help them set. 

HOW DO I STORE NO OATMEAL BAKE COOKIES?

No bake cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to three week or you can freeze them in an air tight container
