Got a chocolate craving you just cant make go away?

Try this healthy version of the traditional no bake cookie when fruit alone wont solve your cravings.

Loaded with protein, soluble fiber from oats and heart-healthy monouns aturated fats from the peanut butter, this is a great substitute for a sports or nutrition bar, which are often high in sugar and high-fructose corn syrup.

The best part is you can mix this recipe up in less than five minutes, and eat it straight from the bowl (go ahead, its GOOD for you) or refrigerate it for a great, healthy snack the next day.

Healthy No Bake Cookies

Ingredients

1 packet Kashi Instant Heart to Heart Golden Maple Oatmeal
1 tbs natural peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate whey powder
2-3 tbs water
1 tbs organic, unsweetened coconut (optional)
1 tbs salted, chopped peanuts (optional)

Directions
  1. In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  2. Eat directly from the bowl, or cover a plate with waxed paper, spoon out the batter on to the waxed paper, sprinkle with coconut and refrigerate until firm.

Also, if you like a sweet and salty flavor, add 1 tablespoon of chopped or whole salted peanuts.

    Awesome recipe!  THANK YOU!!!

    I made a slightly lower calorie version (and didnt have any whey powder) with 1 packet Sturm Whole Grain Oatmeal, 2 packets Truvia natural no sugar sweetener, 1 tablespoon Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter and 1 Tablespoon of Hersheys Special Dark Cocoa.  Tasted just like I was eating cookie dough out of the bowl again!  210 calories, 10g fat, 8g protein.  Got me through a wicked cardio session this morning!
