It has been a fun journey with Trim Healthy Mama and I love how easy it is sometimes to convert your favorite recipes so they are THM friendly. Here is one of those recipes!
When I was growing up, many evenings my Dad would whip up some sort of dessert or snack for us to eat. No-Bake Cookies were one of our favorites! It was also one of the first things I learned to make on my own when I was first learning to cook in the kitchen. So it isn’t surprising that No-Bake Cookies have held a very special place in my heart (and my stomach!).
When I started Trim Healthy Mama, I decided to take a look at some of my own favorite recipes to see if I could make it THM friendly. When I pulled out my No-Bake Cookie recipe, I knew this was one that I could convert. I gave it a whirl and loved the result! These Fudgy No-Bake Cookies are quick to make and work well keeping in the frig or freezer to have on hand for a quick snack. Enjoy!
- 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 tablespoons almond milk, unsweetened
- 1/4 cup Truvia
- 1/4 cup defatted peanut flour
- 2 tablespoons water
- dash sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup rolled oats OR use 1 cup coconut (shredded or chips) OR us 1/2 cup rolled oats and 1/2 cup coconut (shredded or chips)
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or coconut oil, cocoa, almond milk, Truvia, defatted peanut flour, water, and sea salt. Bring to a boil and allow to boil, stirring constantly, for one minute.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and oats/coconut.
- Drop by tablespoons (I used a small cookie scoop) onto foil.
- Refrigerate to harden, then store in covered container in refrigerator.
- Makes 16 cookies.
- To keep this as an "S" snack or dessert, you can have 2-3 cookies! (If you use 1/2 coconut or all coconut, you can have 3-4 cookies to stay in "S" territory!)
