Heathy (ish) Coconut No Bake Cookies

  • Author: Melissa Griffiths-Bless This Mess

  • Yield: Make 15 cookies 1x


These no-bake chocolate coconut cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth & are kid approved too! Made with a winning combo of cocoa, coconut & peanut butter.


  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or regular white sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used a dark dutch-processed cocoa powered)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup salted natural peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat add the coconut sugar, milk, coconut oil, and cocoa powder. Stir to combine well. Stirring often, bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and simmer for 1 minute.
  2. Remove the pan from the head and stir in the coconut, oats, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine well. Using a cookie scoop or 2 spoons, place a tablespoon ball of the cookie mixture on a wax or parchment paper lined sheet. Repeat until all of the oat mixture is gone. Let the cookies sit for about 20 minutes to firm up and then enjoy within a day or two.
