I played around with my family's No Bake Cookie recipe and produced a single portion of this cookie that I feel is healthy enough to eat as a meal. They?re still very good but are much healthier. I keep getting asked for the recipe, so I finally decided to measure out the exact portions and post the recipe. THIS RECIPE IS VERY FLEXIBLE! When I make them I NEVER measure out anything and I often add more or less of ingredients and they still taste great. I sometimes leave out the wheat germ and flax seeds and just add more oatmeal. I have made these replacing the sugar with about 3 tablespoons of honey. I have changed the recipe from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder.

Recipe Ingredients for Healthy No Bake Cookies

3 tablespoons skim milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 1/4 cup quick oatmeal

Recipe Directions for Healthy No Bake Cookies

  1. Heat milk, sugar and cocoa powder over high heat until boiling, stirring constantly.

  2. Take off heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter; stir until peanut butter has melted completely.

  3. Stir in oatmeal.

  4. Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax paper or eat immediately.

  5. -You could use 1 cup quick oats, 1/8 cup wheat germ, and 1 1/2 tsp ground flax seeds instead of 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal.

  6. *As I noted above, this recipe is VERY flexible. If you don't have wheat germ or flax seed, just use more oatmeal. The recipe above should work out just perfectly and does most of the time, but if your cookies come out crumbly, use less oatmeal next time. If they never set, use more oatmeal next time.
