Dark Chocolate Coconut Yummies

Steven and I absolutely LOVE these no bake cookies! πŸ˜€ They are one of our favorite “quick treats” for when we are having a late night chocolate craving. πŸ˜‰ Β I created this recipe by modifying one that I received from my sister. They turned out absolutely fabulous and are so easy to prepare!

These are gluten free as long as the oats that you have are certified gluten free. πŸ˜‰


  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup Raw Honey
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup Skim Milk (organic is best)…you can make this dairy free by using almond or any other nut milk or coconut milk Β in place of the cows milk πŸ™‚
  • 1/4 cup Raw Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter/Nut butter of choice (just nuts…no additives such as sugar, oil, etc)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 cups Rolled Oats (give or take, stir in a little at a time until you get a desired consistency)

Combine the Coconut Oil, Honey, Cocoa Powder, and Milk into a med saucepan over med high heat.

Once it has come to a boil, set your timer for 1 minute and let it boil. When the minute is up, remove from the heat and add in the Coconut, Peanut Butter, and Vanilla until thoroughly mixed. A wire whisk works great for this part.

Last, add in the oats, a cup at a time, until it reaches a consistency that you desire.

Use a small or large ice cream scoop to scoop the oat mixture onto cookie sheets that you have covered with waxed paper. We then put ours in the freezer for a quick set time…after about 15 minutes, they are ready to enjoy!

Who of you has cooked with coconut oil? Do you like it? Use it frequently? Please share your experiences with this great ingredient that is now a staple in our home! πŸ™‚

    Will have to give these a try. I’m not a big fan of honey (flavor) in cookies but the chocolate and peanut butter should make up for it!

  2. I honestly don’t even taste the honey! πŸ˜‰ They are so stinkin yummy that I don’t make them very often b/c Steven and I will sit here and eat the whole batch! LOL Hope you like them…you will have to let me know what you think!

    Love living at the commissaries mercy! Couldn’t find raw coconut shavings, so used sliced almonds instead. Also, no almond milk, so used the leftover coconut milk from morning coffee “creamer.” -Really looking forward to that vitamix!! Furthermore, no coco powder-ugh! Thank God for friends! Was a bit skeptical about if the cookies would set up. The freezer worked great. Delicious. And I am finding that be giving my body good food I’m not inclined to binge in a feeble grasping for satisfaction-that is, I ate one…which for me never ever happens. Thank you Lord!

    • Glad they worked for you despite the ingredient set backs. πŸ˜› And praise the Lord for only one! You are doin far better than I ever did! lol
