Healthy No Bake Cookies

I'm always on the look out for healthy snacks that I can make for our family. Pinterest is so awesome for keeping all of my recipes (and other things) organized all in on place.

I came across a recipe for Healthy No Bake Cookies and pinned it to my Healthy Snacks board, to be made at a later date.

Well last week, that later date came. I had a look at my Healthy Snacks board and decided upon what looked good to make (and what supplies I already had in my pantry).

Healthy No Bake Cookies it was then.

And I am so glad that I tried it. This recipe was so easy to make and so good. The kids loved them and little did they know that there was chia seeds and oat bran in it. Yay!

Here are all the ingredients all in one bowl.


Mix, mix, mix, mix until everything is well combined.


Then roll into little balls. I have been wanting to invest in a small cookie scoop. I have a big one, but I really want a small one...this recipe would put it to perfect use.

Put the balls on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and place in the freezer until frozen. Then put all the frozen little balls in a bag, store in the freezer, and take one or two or three or four as needed. :)

That's it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy...like my boys would say.


Healthy No Bake Cookies

Recipe adapted from Wit & Whistle

1/2 cup honey
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup oat bran (you can substitute with wheat germ)
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, using a wooden spoon.

Spoon 20-24 small balls of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and place the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 45 minutes.

Remove sheet from freezer and transfer the cookies from the parchment to a Tupperware dish with a good fitting lid. The best way to remove them from the parchment is to get a good grip and twist slightly.

Store in the freezer.
