No Bake Cookies

What’s the worst thing about cookies? Yes, there is one negative thing about cookies….

The worst thing is waiting for them to bake! You are tortured with that wonderful cookie smell but you have to wait for them to cook and wait for them cool…it’s no fun!

No Bake Cookies are the way to go!

No waiting required!

Nut butter is a must for these guys.  Peanut, almond, cashew…whatever you prefer!

I love Crazy Richard’s almond and cashew butters!

Instead of adding a bunch of sugar, I add protein powder.

Chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, or just about any flavor will work.

Keep them plain or add some fun!

Chocolate chips, raisins, and peanuts are a few of my favorite additions.  

Let’s face it…chocolate chips are the best!

These freeze great, but they probably won’t last that long.

Cookies for breakfast!?

I think so! It’s basically like eating a bowl of oatmeal, but must better!

  1. I too am such an impatient baker. That’s why I purposely leave the oven light on so that I can watch my goodies bake! I’m very glad that this is made with protein powder and peanut butter! I didn’t even know that these type of cookie recipes that use these ingredients can be no bake too!
