This cookie takes less than 15 minutes to prepare and then an hour or two in the frig, depending on the temp of your frig. Mine is very old, about 30 years, so it takes a couple of hours before they are ready to cut.
1 stick of organic butter (I use unsalted)
1 cup peanut butter ( I use this one)
1/2 cup raw honey (I use this one)
2 cups oatmeal ( I use this one)
1 cup flake coconut (I use this one)
1 cup chocolate chips (I use this one)
2 tsp – 1 Tbs of organic vanilla – depending on your taste
You can add nuts to this recipe too. They add a little different texture and sometimes I add 1/2 – 3/4 cup of nuts to them just to shake it up a little.
Put the butter, peanut butter, and honey in a 2 quart pan. In a separate bowl, mix oatmeal, coconut, and chocolate chips . Set the pan over medium heat and stir continuously. WATCH it carefully and keep it stirred. It will burn in a second. When everything is melted together, turn off the heat and stir in the dry ingredients until the chocolate chips have melted. Then stir in the vanilla. Now pour into a 9 x 13 pan and put it in the frig to set.
Once firmed up, cut into squares of any size you like. I put my cut pieces into a storage bowl with a lid. Keep them in the frig (they won’t be there long). Enjoy!
We like these no bake cookies so much because they really do feel good to our bodies and are so quick and easy to make. They don’t have a real name so we call them “peanut butter chocolate cookies.” I call them, “J’s Favorite Cookie.” We don’t snack at our house so we eat them as dessert. My husband likes them as a “light meal” at the end of the day when he gets in too late to eat a full meal.

Safe and Happy Journey,
