Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate No Bake Cookies Recipe

Sometimes you have a chocolate craving that needs to be taken care of, and nothing else will do. I’m sure you’ve found yourself in that dilemma more than a few times. If you’re trying to eat clean and healthy, then you need a simple alternative. You could either go for a traditional chocolate candy, or with just a bit of prep have protein rich, healthy no bake cookies ready to satisfy that craving. They’re full of nutrients and clean ingredients, without any processed carbs or sugar.


These peanut butter chocolate cookies could easily be part of your healthy snacking routine or a rewarding dessert you can feel good about. Made from common pantry items with almost no effort and little hands-on time. Simply melt together natural peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey to create a gooey base. Mix in old fashioned oats, cocoa powder, and dried blueberries; then shape the cookies. If blueberries are in season, carefully mix them in or lightly press into the tops. You can also use other dried fruits or add in ingredients like nuts, chia, or flax seeds.

Another key ingredient to add protein to this recipe is Davidson’s Safest Choice® eggs. How do you add eggs in a no bake cookie you ask? Well that’s the wonderful  thing about pasteurized eggs. These hormone free, antibiotic free, and vegetarian-fed eggs are put in an all-natural warm water bath that pasteurizes them without cooking. Enjoy the protein and nutrition benefits of eggs without the risk of Salmonella you can get from raw, unpasteurized eggs.

These healthy peanut butter chocolate no bake cookies are prepped in minutes and store well in the fridge. Great for keeping leftovers on hand for a healthy snack that satisfies your sweet tooth.
