  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1+1/2 cup Gluten-free Rolled Oats

  • Get all your ingredients out and ready to go. This goes kind of quickly!
  • Size a sheet of parchment paper or wax paper over a cookie sheet.
  • With a food processor or handheld pulser, process the oats with a few good pluses. This makes the oats easier to chew and digest. If you like the oats whole, skip this step.
  • In a saucepan, turn heat to medium and add the coconut oil.
  • Slowly add the maple syrup, honey, coconut milk, and peanut butter. Using a whisk, stir the mixture.
  • Add the peanut butter and continue to whisk. Then add the cocoa. Keep whisking!
  • Bring to a slow boil for 3 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Stir in the oats.
  • Add the shredded coconut.
  • Using a spoon, scoop mixture onto the cookie sheet to desired size, cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator.
  • After at least 60 minutes, remove and put cookies in a baggie for storage in the frig. Or, simply enjoy your amazing no-bake cookies!

Calories are an educational guess, this depends on how large you make your cookies. I based the calories on a cookie the size of the palm of a hand or 3-inch diameter. 
If you want to cool the cookies faster, put them in the freezer for about 30 - 40 minutes.Store cookies in the frig. for up to 10 days. 
NOTE: I experimented with organic sugar cane instead of syrup and honey, and it didn't work for me. While in the saucepan it became frothy and gave the cookies a grainy texture and burnt-like taste.
