No Bake Gluten-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies


These are so simple and quick to make! The oatmeal gives these cookies a nice texture and, with the addition of the other ingredients, they turn out soft and chewy. I love that they are no-bake also. It really cuts the prep time in half. These are great to make as a snack, pre or post workout, and/or dessert. For for possible substitutions, see my Tips section at the bottom. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 Tbsp. cacao powder
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp. agave nectar
¼ tsp. vanilla extract

Method

1. Place oats, protein powder, and cacao powder in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir together until well combined.

2. Place the remaining ingredients into the bowl and stir everything together until well combined.

3. Using a tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Make 10 cookies total. Place cookies in fridge for 30 minutes. Remove from fridge and enjoy.

Nicolette's Tips

* You may substitute agave nectar with honey or pure maple syrup.
* If you don't like peanut butter, you may substitute it with all natural almond, cashew, or sunflower seed butter.
* You can also try these with chocolate or peanut butter protein powder instead of vanilla protein powder for a richer tasting cookie.
Store leftover cooking in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
