Delicious No-Bake Cookie Recipe (With Coconut Oil!)

It’s hard to find a snack that is actually healthy for you. With all of the processed “junk” that’s available at the reach of a hand, it’s difficult to really know what’s good for you and what isn’t.

Coconut oil is used for a variety of things, ranging from beauty and hair to cooking and baking. It’s been labeled as a “superfood” for all of the countless health benefits is provides.

These are just a couple of the amazing benefits of coconut oil:

It strengthens your immunity. Coconut oil contains antimicrobial lipids, which have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. These lipids help in fighting against harmful bacteria and viruses.

Coconut oil helps with digestion. The saturated fats that are found in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties. Coconut oil helps in dealing with fungi, bacteria and parasites that can cause indigestion and also helps other nutrients, vitamins and minerals to be absorbed properly.

Because coconut oil is so good for your health, it’s important to make sure that it’s added to your diet on a daily basis.

The next time you want a home-made sweet, but healthy treat, try out these amazing coconut oil no-bake cookies!

Coconut Oil No-Bake Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 3 ¼ cup of oats
  • ½ cup coconut oil (measured as liquid)
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • ½ cup coconut or almond milk
  • 2 cups of Stevia to sweeten
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Measure the oats into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Place a piece of wax paper on the counter to use when the cookies are done.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the coconut oil, peanut butter, coconut or almond milk, Stevia, cocoa powder and salt.
  4. Turn heat to medium (no higher than this) and stir consistently until the ingredients come to a rolling boil.
  5. Set a time for 4 minutes and stir continually. Make sure that you scrape the sides and the bottom regularly to avoid burning.
  6. Once the timer has gone off, remove the pot from the heat and add the vanilla. Adding the vanilla will cause the mixture to boil, so stir it in quickly.
  7. Add the previously measured oats and stir until they are all coated.
  8. Scoop oats a spoonful at a time onto the wax paper and let them cool before eating.

The next time you’re at the store, don’t forget to grab a bottle of coconut oil. Make sure that you purchase extra virgin coconut oil so that you can reap all of the health benefits that coconut oil has to offer!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
