With all this cold and snow, I decided I needed some chocolate. But I also was feeling a bit lazy, so I thought the perfect thing to make would be these no bake cookies! I love no bakes for a whole bunch of reasons, and so should you! Not only is everything made in one pot (can you say less dishes!) but they come together in less than 30 minutes and on top of everything they’re just incredibly addicting.
I actually used almond butter instead of peanut butter, and I didn’t taste a difference. The almond butter gives it a bit of creaminess, but instead of noticing an almond flavor gets a bit buried under the cocoa powder. So feel free to sub the almond butter for peanut butter if that’s what you have. My almond butter was also natural and didn’t cause the cookies to be runny (in fact they’re still a bit crumbly) so just use whatever is currently in your pantry. I’d say that these are like breakfast cookies since they contain oats, but I’d be kidding myself. Although with just one cup of sugar in the whole batch, it’s almost like it’s a healthy/cheating cookie. Am I right?!? Anyone?
I’m fairly positive that you have all you need to make these in your kitchen right now. So grab a pot and let’s get set! Nothing’s better than taking a break with a cup of coffee or tea and a few of these.
