Save this no-bake chocolate almond cookies recipe for when you’re craving chocolate but still want a few health benefits!

These simple cookies are the perfect healthy-sweet compromise.

I’ve updated my mom’s no-bake recipe to one that you can enjoy on a semi-regular basis: naturally-sweetened maple for the brown sugar, coconut oil for the butter, and a generous handful of shredded coconut and chopped almonds for good measure.

While decidedly better-for-you than a traditional no-bake cookie, they still taste like a decedent chocolate treat. I, Alex, made a batch of these for Easter weekend and they were devoured within hours! 

They are really easy to make and offer the perfect amount of sweetness when you just need a little something to finish off a meal.

Equipment

  • Nonstick pan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted almond butter (can substitute peanut butter/other nut butter)
  • 0.5 cup coconut oil
  • 0.5 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Place parchment or wax paper on two large baking sheets and set aside.
  • Place the almond butter and coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, until almond butter and coconut have melted together.
  • Turn off heat and stir in maple syrup, almond extract and chocolate chips. Stir together off heat until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add in the oats, coconut flakes and almonds. Stir together, it should have the same texture as a thick cookie dough. If the nut butter is too runny, you may need to add more oats.
  • Drop by rounded spoonfuls (I used a medium cookie scoop) onto the parchment paper and gently flatten with the back of the spoon or scoop. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and/or chopped almonds.
  • Place in the fridge to harden for at least 1 hour. They taste best when allowed to harden, but no judgements if you enjoy a few right after shaping!
  • Since most of the above ingredients are pantry staples, if you start now- you can enjoy these healthy no-bake chocolate almond cookies in less than 15 minutes!

  1. Oats should always be cooked, or toasted, as they have phytic acid, which is an anti-neutrient! Raw is not the answer!!!
