No Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Chocolate is a basic necessity of life, in my opinion. Gluten free, dairy free, whatever free, never chocolate free. So here's a recipe that I had success with. This made seriously delicious cookies that could satisfy any chocolate craving. The recipe does contain honey because, as you know, I'm not actually vegan. :) Feel free to replace the honey with sugar!


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut oil, solid form
1/2 cup peanut butter1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sunflower seeds1
1/4 cup peanuts


Line a cookie sheet or platter with parchment paper. Set aside. Combine the honey, cocoa powder, and coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until it is melted and combined. Allow to boil for one minute (I had to raise my heat to medium-high to reach a boil). Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and salt until completely smooth. Stir in peanuts and sunflower seeds (or whatever mix-in you desire) making sure it is all coated. Use a spoon to drop small mounds onto the prepared cookie sheet/platter. Make them as big or small as you desire. Chill the cookies in the fridge for 1 hour to set. Cookies must be stored in the fridge because of coconut oil's low melting point. Enjoy!

Try different varieties of these cookies, too! I've also made them with shredded coconut and slivered almonds as shown below and gluten free oats! Be aware, however that the oats soaked up the fudginess a bit differently so the texture was slightly different. 

Makes 16-25 cookies, depending on size. Recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction
