No-bake cookies are an easy and delicious dessert any time of year, but they're especially great during the holidays. This recipe tastes like the traditional no-bake cookie but is sugar-free and keto-friendly.
That chocolate peanut butter combination is so delicious and so filling! I actually love to eat these as a breakfast cookie with my decaf coffee (yes, I stick to decaf!). I wouldn't do that with the full-sugar version, but this cleaned-up no-bake cookie recipe is great for any time.
This recipe is so simple and easy, keeps great in the freezer, and is worth having on hand for when that sweet tooth or chocolate craving strikes. These cookies are so rich that they will easily knock out those cravings without throwing you into a sugar-craving spiral.
These no-bake cookies are a really easy way to cap off your holiday spread for a sweet treat after the spectacular prime rib dinner. They're also great to take to a Christmas cookie exchange or to share with your co-workers for a better-for-you option this holiday season.
I've taken these to parties and no one realized they were sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free. They just thought they were a coconut variation of the traditional no-bake cookie. The kiddos even gobbled them up. That's how good they are!
You could also use your favorite nut or seed or a mix of nuts and seeds instead of coconut if you're not a big fan of coconut. Any saturated fat will do in place of the coconut oil. If you can tolerate dairy, you can use butter or ghee. I've made variations of these with hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds and they all turned out great!
