Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies!

Recipe provided by Registered Dietitian, Molly Linek:

Seriously so EASY!!!!!! You wont believe it tastes so good!

Total Time:  5 minutes

Yield:  9 – 12 bars


● 1/2 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)

● 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave

● 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
● 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

● 1/4 tsp salt

● 2 cups quick oats 

● 1/4 cup cocoa powder

● Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment or wax. Set aside. 

● Stir together the first three ingredients.

 ● Gently heat until the oil is melted and peanut butter is easily stir-able. 

● Whisk in the vanilla extract and salt, stirring until completely smooth. 

● Stir in the quick oats and cocoa powder until evenly coated.

 ● Smooth into the prepared pan, and press down with a spoon as hard as you can. Really pack it in.

 ● Freeze until firm enough to cut. Leftovers can stay out a few hours, but I like to keep them in the freezer for optimum freshness, where they last a few weeks.
