I love simple. Truth be told, I also love complicated but these cookies are not complicated. One pot and that’s it. Easy breezy.

Another great thing about these cookies, besides the fact that they are super easy, is that instead of butter these babies feature coconut oil. The more I educate myself on the benefits of coconut oil the happier I get.

When something this delicious and versatile is so healthy for you I do little dances of joy. You know those non-believers, like those skeptics who ‘don’t like healthy food’? Hand them one of these cookies and dare them not to like it. Go on! Dare them! I dare you! Double dare, even. 😉

They will be convinced and swaying them to the healthy side will have been so easy.

Because, I did mention these were easy, yes?

Here we go!


I rolled with coconut sugar for these cookies. I prefer it for my sweet treats for a few reasons. It’s not highly processed, it’s a safe option for diabetics and it also has a high mineral content.

Oh, and it’s so caramel-y and yummy.

Can’t forget that.

Combine the coconut sugar, coconut oil, cocoa powder and some almond milk and bring them to a quick boil.

Stir in some peanut butter (I’m partial to the chunky, all natural kind), and a few chocolate chips.

I tossed in a little vanilla also. You can’t say they’re cookies without vanilla, am I right?

Add in the oats (choose certified gluten free if you avoid gluten).

Stir really well.

  1. Hi, I am very excited to make these cookies!! I’m going to make them as a little holiday treat. 😉 I was wondering if the coconut oil is 1/2 cup melted or in solid form?? Do you think sunflower butter will work ok instead of peanut butter? I have a peanut allergy so I can’t do peanut butter. Also how long will they keep for in the fridge? Thanks so much! Sorry for all the questions! Can’t wait to make them!

    1. Hey Jenna! Don’t worry if it is solid or melted – it will be the same either way. 🙂 I haven’t used sunbutter in this particular recipe but I have in many others and it will work just fine. 🙂 You can keep these in the fridge for up to a week – if they last that long! 😉 I hope you enjoy these and your holidays. xoxo

  2. what a wonderful blog you have! 🙂 I’m just looking at all your recipes and they all look so good and simple to make! great pictures too. hope you can continue what you love to do. thank you for sharing your passion.

    1. Wow thanks! What a kind message. I really appreciate that Olivia. Thank YOU for making my day. 🙂

  3. Could you use milk chocolate chips? I know they don’t melt the same as dark and wondered if it would change the consistency of the cookie- not allow them to set as solid as they typically would. Thank you!

    1. Hey Rebecca! I’m sure the milk chocolate chips would work. I prefer using the dark chocolate for the health benefits. 🙂

  4. Do these have to be refrigerated so they harden? And if left at room temperature will they keep their shape? I usually make these with butter but I like the idea of using coconut oil instead. Thanks. Sue

    1. Hi Sue! I keep mine in the fridge. They could be OK at room temp, but like butter would really soften if your room is warmer. You will love these with the coconut oil. 🙂

  5. These look wonderful, but do I have to use the peanut butter? I’m gluten free, but my daughter is allergic to peanuts. I’m always on the lookout for recipes that fit both our needs.

    1. Hi Carie! The taste would change a bit but you could definitely use a different kind of nut or seed butter like almond or sunflower. I’m certain they would both taste wonderful in these cookies.

  6. These were so delicious! I loved no bake cookies when I was able to eat gluten and dairy and these are absolutely a perfect substitute. I almost like these better because of the coconut!

  7. Sharon, I LOVE this recipe, cause I also love simple. Like you said it is so easy to make and looks so tasty! I have all the ingredients on this recipe, so I’ve gotta make this cookies!
    Have a wonderful day 😉

  8. I was just thinking that I needed a quick (healthy) chocolate fix and these look perfect! Off to make some now 🙂

    1. And I’m done! 🙂 These are so quick and tasty, I’ll definitely be keeping these for future quick chocolate fixes 🙂

      1. Ha! It’s funny to think while I was sleeping you were on the other side of the world happily munching away. 😉 I’m so glad you liked them.
