Vegan No-Bake Cookie Recipe

When my husband and I were dating, his mother would frequently make no-bake cookies. She always made obscene amounts and I usually went home with a decent amount (I'm talking about a large tupperware container, here) to eat all by myself share with my parents. We have no idea what ingredients his mother used in her no-bakes, but we are sure that they weren't Vegan.

We have been Vegan since April 2013 and haven't eaten no-bake cookies since long before then. We were missing (and craving!) them something fierce! Hubs finally had enough and searched high and low for a recipe. Nothing we found was exactly what we were looking for, so we ended up playing around and made our own based on our needs.

They were so delectable and decadent that we made them twice in two days.

I thought I'd share the recipe we ended up using so maybe some of you could try these out.

Hint: You should.

Recipe for Vegan No-Bake Cookies:
Adapted from this recipe.
This makes about 3 dozen-ish cookies, all depending on how big your plops of cookie are.
It takes only a few minutes to make; maybe 10-15; but if you let them cool, it obviously takes longer.
You'll want to make sure you have everything measured and ready before starting!
1/2c peanut butter
3c oats (we used quick-cooking oats because we had those on hand)
1tsp vanilla extract
4tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/2c Vegan butter
1/2c unsweetened almond milk
1 3/4c coconut sugar

1. Grab a large saucepan.
2. Stir unsweetened almond milk, Vegan butter, cocoa powder and coconut sugar.
3. Let boil and start timing once it starts boiling. Let it cook for 1 1/2 minutes.
4. Take off of stove, stir in peanut butter, quick-cooking oats and vanilla extract.
5. Plop onto wax paper or Silpat.
6. Let cool. (Totally optional and not recommended. They are perfect fresh and warm. Just as delicious cooled but... come on...)
7. Enjoy!!!

We also made a batch of nut butter cookies recently, too. I'll write about that soon. We've been on a sweet kick lately!
