I think everyone has a favorite no bake cookie. We called the one we grew up with, which my mom created, Carob Yummy. I re-created it very soon after I got married, and I’ll also post that version. It’s a very kid healthy, or skinny person healthy, snack. Just not so friendly on my blood sugar or weight. So the time has come to re-create, again. I guess I’ll give it a more sensible name than carob yummy, especially since there’s now no carob used! Chocolate, ya’ll! I’ll post my favorite, the one that has oats, first. This would be an E if following THM. Then I’ll post an S variation. And finally, I’ll leave you with the original, kid friendly carob yummy, which contains honey and all kinds of other goodies. We won’t mess with the name of those… 😉
No Bake Cocoa Oat Balls
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup beef collagen
1/2 cup powdered Gentle Sweet or my powdered sweetener: https://lotsalittlelambs.com/powdered-sweetener/
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup defatted peanut powder
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
Dissolve collagen in water. Mix and beat together all of the other ingredients except for the rolled oats. After beating, stir in the rolled oats. Roll into balls.
If you make about 30 small balls, 3-4 is a good serving size. You could have a piece of fruit along with this, or just a cup of almond milk.
Here is the S version:
No Bake Coconut Balls
Use the same ingredients as the above recipe, except do not use the oats.
Beat in 1/2 cup coconut oil.
Stir finely shredded coconut in.
Roll into balls.
And for the original, developed from my mom’s recipe!
Yummy, and great for kids, but if you are following THM, you would not want to use this version. 🙂
1 1/2 cups honey
2 sticks butter
2 cups peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 cup carob powder (or cocoa powder)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Quick rolled oats, about 10 cups
Mix all ingredients together except for oats. Stir or beat. Stir in rolled oats till about thick. Let set a moment then roll into balls. These are great stored in the refrigerator or freezer. We love them still frozen, straight from the freezer.
I’d love it if you’d check out my store. I offer the collagen and many other items!
