No Bake Cookies

In case you need more guilt-free cookies this Christmas, here’s another recipe for No Bake Cookies which I found on Gluten Free Fix which I altered a bit. This tastes like a candy bar! I like that you don’t have to bake it, and it’s really, really good when eat them right out of the freezer. Great as a snack or dessert.

RECIPE

  • 1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil for dairy-free option)
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I used almond butter.)
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of nuts* (Your choice: pecans, almonds, peanuts, etc.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. In a pot, combine butter/oil, agave nectar, and cocoa powder.  Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 minute, whisking constantly.  Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir in nut butter, salt and vanilla.
  3. Stir in coconut flakes and nuts.
  4. Scoop cookies onto a parchment lined sheet tray.
  5. Refrigerate to set.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 1 week and freezer up to 1 month. (Makes 3 dozen)

*You can make this guilt-free goodie nut-free by using 3 cups of coconut flakes instead. It turns out more like a chocolate macaroon.
