No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Walnut Cookies
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 15 mins
  • 1 and ½ tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ⅓ cup and 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy!)
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  1. Add butter, milk, honey/maple syrup and cocoa to a small sauce pan and heat on medium until butter is melted. Stir well.
  2. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and oats. Stir well.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in walnuts and shredded coconut. If they are too dry, you can add a little more milk or peanut butter; they should be wet enough to hold together, but not too wet where they won't hold their shape nicely.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop teaspoonfuls of the dough onto the baking sheet.
  5. Flatten with the back of a spoon and shape with your hands into a cookie, with desired thickness.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator (best result is at least 2 hours, but you can eat them before!).
Makes 12 cookies
