Well, let me tell you what makes these healthy chocolate no bake cookies so special. They’re no bake! Lord knows how convenient that can be for those of us who are so busy they can’t even thing of making anything homemade anymore.
These no bake chocolate cookies with peanut butter also have a ton of good for you ingredients that will satisfy your sweet tooth while also being nutritious for your body.
- Chia seeds– These might be tiny but they are a total powerhouse indeed. Chia seeds are an amazing source of omega-3 fatty acids. They are also rich in antioxidants, fibre and iron!
- Old fashioned oats – Oats are a great source of fiber, which makes it very filling.
- Coconut oil- Instead of butter, we are using coconut oil in this recipe. Amongst many of the health benefits, here are some of my favorites: the fatty acids in coconut oil helps kill harmful microorganisms. It also aids in significantly reducing the appetite.
- Coconut sugar – Again instead of using regular sugar in this recipe, we opted for coconut sugar because it is a whole lot better for you. It has an amazingly low glycemic index compared to other sugars. It also contains quite a lot of raw antioxidants!
So have one of these healthy cookies with your cup of tea next time and enjoy that guilt free feeling!
