No Bake Cookies- Phase 3




I made this recipe up for my husband, since he LOVES these. They will count as the fat and grain portion for a Phase 3 breakfast. Be sure to add your veggies, fruits and protein portions for complete breakfast. I recommend a smoothie. 

No Bake Cookies

4T raw cashew or raw almond butter
6T coconut oil
2-4T cocoa
2T powder stevia
2tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 cup uncooked rolled oats

Melt oil and nut butter. Stir in everything except oats, mix until smooth. Taste and adjust cocoa or sweetener. Add oats, stir to coat. Spoon onto plate or silicone sheet. Refrigerate until set.

Makes 4 standard servings, 3 servings for over 40lbs goal

  1. Do these need to be kept refrigerated? I'm going on a retreat next weekend and these would be a great snack to take along to share, provided they can stay at room temperature. If not, maybe I'll make them anyway, keep them in the fridge and eat them for my breakfast.

  2. Val, coconut oil melts at like 73 degrees, so they can get messy if not kept cold. You could portion them into small containers, and just eat with a spoon. Maybe some disposable containers with lids.

  3. Thanks! I think I'll share something different and save these for dessert with P3 dinner when I get home.

  4. These are delicious! However, I keep finding stevia to be bitter in desserts. I even let the mixture cool in the fridge before I added the stevia... (I used powdered but also added liquid vanilla flavored because I ran out of vanilla) Last weekend I made chocolate mousse with coconut cream it was bitter too. My body does not manage xylitol well, and so I finally gave up on that. Are there any other sweeteners that aren't bitter or is there something I should know about using stevia?

    2. Monk fruit (pure) is also approved but I've never used it

    3. What brand of stevia are you using? If i use anything off the general grocery store shelf they usually have additives..like erythritol for example. I never like the taste of those ones. I use sweet leaf and love the taste of it. Also changing to stevia was a bit of a curve i needed a bit of time to get used to it.

  5. This would be great with Sunflower butter. I love the taste of Ezekiel bread toasted with some Sunflower Butter spread on top!
