Low Carb No Bake Cookies

Have you ever had those no bake cookies with peanut butter, cocoa and oatmeal? This is a nice low carb interpretation of that recipe. Surprisingly good and simple. I particularly like the coconut flavor in this recipe.

No picture at the moment, because, well, the cookies look kind of like poo. I couldn't get an attractive picture, but hope to come back and add one in the future.

Here's the recipe for about 12 tiny cookies.

  • 4 tbsps. melted butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsps. cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup salted sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed (optional)
  • 3 tbsp. Splenda brown sugar blend (or 5 tbsps of Splenda and no Truvia)
  • 2 tbsps. Truvia (or 5 tbsps of Truvia and no Splenda)

1. Add and mix ingredients in the order listed.

2.Form balls and then press down with a fork (kind of like how you make peanut butter cookies).

3.Chill in fridge until set.
