No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Cookies

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Hi there. I’m back with another delicious, no-bake dessert that has only 5 ingredients!

Yep. Chocolate chips (I like semi-sweet), peanut butter, unsweetened shredded coconut, rolled oats, and sea salt are all the ingredients you’ll need to make this. When these ingredients are combined together, it results in a treat that tastes sweet, salty, and nutty!

The textures are wonderful too! The melted chocolate and peanut butter is creamy and melt-in-your-mouth while the oats and coconut give the cookies a pleasant chewy yet soft (and easy to eat) texture.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Cookies!

Why make these peanut butter coconut cookies?

  • These no-bake cookies take very little time to prepare.
    • All you do is melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips together and then mix in the remaining ingredients to combine, scoop onto a baking sheet, shape it into a regular cookie shape (e.g. like a flat disc) or balls or whatever you really want.
    • TIP: when you shape the cookies, make sure that you slightly wet your hands, it will help prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands.
  • Seriously, the hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the cookies to “set” in the freezer, which only takes about 20 minutes.

  • Also, these scrumptious bites are vegan-friendly and gluten-free too.
    • If this is of concern to you, just make sure that the ingredients don’t have additional additives that would indicate otherwise.
    • For example, choose chocolate that is free of dairy products and peanut butter that doesn’t contain any animal products like honey.
  • Plus, these little snackable cookies are really easy to pack up, take-on-the-go, and share (or not… I’m not judging).
    • Just note that these cookies will soften over time as it sits at room temperature. The best place to store leftovers are in an airtight container in the refrigerator or in the freezer.

Speaking of sharing, my husband frequently brings leftovers from my recipe testing into work. I told him to bring the two containers of these cookies that we had stored in the freezer.

Somehow, he *mysteriously* only took one container in on the first day. He says he didn’t see the other one, but I think he wanted them all to himself.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Cookies

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Yield: 30 small cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Chocolate and peanut butter and coconut, oh my! Check out this quick, no-bake, 5-ingredient treat that’s so delicious to eat!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup / 7 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup / 10 oz. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups / 7¾ oz. whole grain rolled oats
  • 2 cups / 7¾ oz. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a large non-stick skillet (or saucepan) on medium-high heat, add in the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Whisk until the mixture is completely melted and uniform in texture.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the rolled oats, shredded coconut, and salt until the ingredients are well-coated with the melted chocolate and peanut butter.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Using a small cookie scoop *(see first note), scoop the mixture and place it on the baking sheet so that the scoops are not touching.
  4. Using slightly wet hands (so the mixture doesn’t stick to your hands), shape each scoop into your desired form such as a ball, flat cookie, or leave it as is.
  5. Freeze for 15-20 minutes, until set. Enjoy!

Notes

  • *I used a size 50 cookie scoop, which holds 1.28 tablespoons to make small cookies or balls. You can also use a tablespoon measuring spoon and scoop out a heaping amount or just eye-ball the amount and size of cookie you want.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Nutritional calories represents one cookie for a total of 30 cookies.

We made this tonight to celebrate Harry Potter's birthday! We called them dung beetle cookies just for fun. Thanks for the recipe. I doubled it and they turned out great.

We make loads of no bake energy balls like this. Peanut butter is always a must.
