Now, I don't know what your definition of sugar is. For me it's the white crystals that I try to stay away from, not glucose in general. My body runs on glucose! So although these cookies are sweetened (with either agave nectar or honey) I named them "sugar-free" because they don't require any spoonfuls of the white stuff :)
Sugar Free Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 3/4 cup agave nectar (or honey)
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 2 cups quick oats
Heat the peanut butter, nectar, cocoa powder, vanilla and coconut oil together over medium high heat on the stove. Use a pot that has plenty of extra room for when the dry ingredients are added. Once the heated mixture is combined thoroughly and heated through remove the pot from the stove and add in the coconut and oats. Stir quickly because the mixture will want to burn on the bottom of the stove. Spoon the mixture out in heaping table spoons onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet, pressing the dough together into your desired shape, then place the cookie sheet in the freezer until the cookies are frozen. Store them in either the fridge or freezer depending on how soon you will be eating them.
I froze a bunch of these in ziplock in the freezer to whip out for school lunches next week. NEXT WEEK!
My kitchen is in full production mode from now until September 1st
