No time to eat or need a sweet treat at night? Try this healthy no bake cookies recipe or try the no bake brownies below!
I found a no bake cookies recipe online last week, and I really wanted to try it. After making one batch, I decided to play a little bit with the recipe. The final result was a really yummy, gooey cookie! They reminded me of cookie dough.
No Bake Cookies Recipe with Protein
1/2 all natural peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
3 packets Stevia (original recipe called for 6, but it was too sweet for me)
1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology
1 cup dry oatmeal
Mix all ingredients well & form into golf ball size cookies. Freeze 1-2 hours & keep remaining cookies frozen. When you want one, just take it out of the freeze, thaw a little bit, and enjoy! It makes about 18 cookies and each is about 90 calories. Happy non-baking!
If you want a gooey cookie, eat them fresh. If you would like them to be a little more firm refrigerate for an hour and freeze the others.
Not a Vanilla Fan? Try the No Bake Chocolate Brownie
We made these yesterday. Here’s the verdict…
1. They are yummy.
2. No, they aren’t like a regular cake brownie, but they are really tasty =)
3. They are pretty gooey
They are a great choice if you are trying to pick a healthier option than processed cookies or candy. I’d definitely make them again.
No Bake Chocolate Brownie Recipe
½ cup natural smooth almond butter
1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1 medium banana, mashed
¼ cup quick-cooking rolled oats
3 Tbsp. chopped pecans
Combine all of the ingredients together, and then press the batter into a 1″ bowl. They need to be refrigerated for about an hour or longer to firm up. Each is about 100 calories.
