These clean eating no bake cookies are so tasty that you would never believe that they aren’t just the regular ones made with all the junky processed ingredients. They’re OH SO GOOD, and can even be substituted as a Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Ball.
I tried out several clean eating no bake cookie recipes, and have just not been a fan of any of them so far.
So, I remembered that my own no bake cookie recipe was fairly healthy and figured it may be worth taking a look at to see if I could make it a totally clean recipe.
The only thing that wasn’t super clean about my old recipe is that there was a TON of processed sugar in there, so I knew that needed to change.
That old recipe was conceived in my brain long before I had ever even heard of coconut sugar, so I thought I’d see if I could swap it out, and I’m happy to tell you that it was a huge success!
These are literally the best tasting clean eating/real food no bake cookies I have tried…and I’ve tried my fair share of different recipes.
We are just going to dive right in and get making this yummy treat! There is a free printable recipe card down at the bottom for your convenience.
How to make clean eating cookies:
(Please excuse my less-than-mediocre photography…one of these days I will hire a professional to make these cookies, but today is not going to be that day)
Bring the mixture to a boil for one minute or so, which is just to dissolve the Coconut Sugar.
Remove from heat, then add the Peanut Butter, Vanilla, and Oats. Mix well!
These cookies actually make really easy and delicious chocolate peanut butter energy balls/bites if you are looking for an easy/tasty energy boost.
My favorite thing about them is actually that they are sweet enough to satisfy my sugar and chocolate cravings, but they are also healthy enough that even if I make them several times in one week, I don’t gain any weight…lol. #fatgirlproblems
- 1/2 Cup Salted Butter
- 1 Cup Coconut Sugar (3/4 cup works too)
- 1/3 Cup Agave Nectar (Real Maple Syrup, Or Raw Honey)
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Or Scraping Of One Vanilla Bean)
- 3 &1/2 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
Cookies so good you may not believe it's one of my clean eating recipes:
- In a medium saucepan, on medium heat, add the Butter, Coconut Sugar, Liquid Sweetener of choice, Milk, & Cocoa Powder. Melt the Butter & mix well.
- Bring to a boil, mixing here and there, for one minute or so.
- Remove from heat & add the Peanut Butter, Vanilla, & Rolled oats. Mix well.
- Drop by large Cookie Scoop or Ice Cream Scoop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Let cool/harden and enjoy. Can store in airtight container for up to a few days.
I use Agave as my preferred liquid sweetener when I make these. If you use honey, or maple syrup they may turn out just a tad bit sticky when they set up.
These would make perfect energy balls if you're looking for a little boost.
This recipe calls for 3/4 to 1 Cup Coconut Sugar. It is great with either amount, I'm just cheap so I usually go with 3/4 Cup to make the coconut sugar stretch a bit further.

I know that I keep telling you that they’re tasty (try them and see what you think), but we sure think so at my house…so much so that we usually can’t wait long enough to eat them so we have them warm and ooey, gooey in bowls and chase it down with a cool glass of milk. You won’t be sorry if you do that too.
