Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies.
Chocolate plus peanut butter has to be one of our household’s favorite combinations. Especially, our girls. The girls have been asking to make cookies recently, but I didn’t feel like baking them. Then, I remembered a no bake recipe I’ve made in the past. Taking one bite of these chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies will leave your mouth full of deliciousness. The fact that kids can make these pretty much on their own is another added bonus. I’m constantly looking for ideas to let the girls explore in the kitchen and expand, not only their taste buds, but their love of cooking and enjoying treats that are healthy for them.
Watch the girls make them!
These no bake cookies are packed full of protein, so they are the perfect treat for high energy summer days where your kids have been going full steam.
I know, for us, many summer days are spent swimming for hours on end, which means they need to have energy to keep up. These chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies do just that. I’m also hoping to get out more this summer and explore some hiking trails and lakes local to us. That’s something we have never done but I’m really excited to try it as a family. We recently found a local park that allows you to rent canoes, so we would really like to do that too. I’ll be making sure that I pack some of these treats with us for whatever we do this summer!
This recipe is super simple. It’s just eight ingredients and while a stove is involved, it’s still just a little help needed on your own. You can make them as thick or thin as you want.
