No-Bake Dark Chocolate Almond Cookies
These healthy no-bake cookies are rich, fudgy, and one of my favorite cookies! Make a batch and keep them in the fridge or freezer so you can cure your cookie craving anytime!
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup Dutch process cocoa
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1 cup old fashioned oats or gluten-free oats
- 1/3 cup chopped Blue Diamond Dark Chocolate Almonds
- Additional chopped almonds and sea salt for sprinkling on cookies, if desired
Line a large plate, platter, or baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa. Add the almond butter and whisk until smooth. Remove mixture from heat and stir in the oats and chopped almonds.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop the mixture onto the prepared parchment paper or wax paper. Sprinkle additional chopped almonds and sea salt on top of cookies, if desired. Transfer cookies to the refrigerator and chill for 20-30 minutes, or until they set up. Eat and enjoy!
Note-I use refined coconut oil. If you can't find Blue Diamond's Dark Chocolate Almonds, you can use their Sea Salt or Whole Natural Almonds. Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. You can also freeze these cookies. They will keep for one month in the freezer. If you need the cookies to be gluten-free make sure you use gluten-free oats.
