These no bake cookie remind me a lot of these chocolate chia cookies that I used to make all the time and I am now just realizing that they are not on my blog! I need to change that ASAP. The difference is these, cookies are less ingredients, more fudge like to the taste, but still just as easy to make. My chocolate chia cookies are loaded with tons of nuts, chia seeds, cacao powder, dates, almond butter and resemble a raw brownie but a little on the dryer side- yet it works. These no bake protein cookies on the other hand, are dense, fudge like and are like the middle of a baked cookie when you pull them out of the oven. You totally have to keep them in the fridge or freezer or they will melt unless you want them to be sticky and gooey!
Anyways, all you need to do is place all of the ingredients that are listed below in your blender or food processor and blend away until you've reached a dough like consistency! Once that is achieved, roll out the dough into balls, flatten them, then top with your favorite toppings! That easy! Also, if you don't like chocolate, you can sub chocolate protein powder for vanilla or any other flavor you would like! If you want to keep them nut free, you sunflower seed butter instead of nut butter- it works! Also, you can leave them in balls and then they will be a lot like my brownie bites, minus the dates! so simple.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes (firm up in fridge)
What you need:
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder (I used Philosophie Cacao Magic) or cacao powder would work too!
1/2 cup almond butter or cashew butter
3 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp coconut oil, doesn't have to be melted
pinch of sea salt
dash of cinnamon
Cacao nibs or dark chocolate (*I used Eating Evolved Midnight Coconut bar chopped up)
Goji berries, shredded coconut flakes, chia seeds, etc!
1. Add all of the ingredients to your food processor except the toppings and blend until a dough like consistency forms.
2. Once you have the desired consistency, roll into balls, flatten, and place on parchment paper lined on a cookie sheet.
3. Add your toppings of choice!
4. Place in the fridge to firm up for about 15 or so minutes. Keep in fridge or freezer for storing.
1. If the dough is too soft add more oat flour or more protein powder.
2. If the dough is too dry add more nut butter of choice.
3. I prefer to keep these cookies in the fridge or freezer like all of my bites because they keep longer, they are more firm, and they have more of a bite! They will melt fast as they have coconut oil in them.
