You don’t have to sweat your afternoon snack! One of our favorite holistic chefs and food blogger, Laura Lea, has perfected a 5 ingredient, no bake cookie that is healthy and satisfying! Try substituting Trader Joe’s Mixed Nut Butter (our favorite) for the peanut butter and be prepared for your new obsession!
Recipe from Laura Lea
1 large egg (can try with a flax or chia egg)
1/2 cup coconut sugar (sub brown sugar or sugar in the raw)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons softened butter (sub softened coconut oil)
3/4 cup unsweetened unsalted peanut butter (rec. organic. Sub almond or Sunbutter)
Optional: 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for garnish
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large nonstick baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to incorporate.
3 Drop approximately 3 tablespoons mixture per cookie onto the baking sheet, leaving at least 1 1/2 inches between each. I use a 1 ounce retractable ice cream scoop.
4 Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are just turning golden brown, but the top is still a light in color and soft. Allow to cool 10 minutes before enjoying. Cookies store for 48 hours on the counter at room temperature, in the fridge for one week, or in the freezer 1-2 months.
