Chocolate No-Bake Teaspoon Cookies (Low-sugar, Dairy-free, Egg-free)

These are simple to whip up, and yield nearly 6 dozen perfectly bite-sized chocolate cookies. Super snackable and yummy, and you don't need to feel guilty for enjoying these low-sugar treats.

What you'll need:

• 3 cups ground oats (quick oats are higher glycemic, so I go with regular rolled oats - the less processing and more fiber the better)

• 3 tablespoons cocoa powder

• 2 tablespoons raw honey (you could also use molasses or yacon syrup. I used yacon syrup because it's particularly low-glycemic)

• 3 tablespoons coconut oil

• 3 tablespoons peanut butter

Okay, first up, toss your oats in the blender and blend until they're finely ground. Then combine with the cocoa powder.

In a separate bowl combine the sweetener, coconut oil, and peanut butter.

Oh goodness, yum.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and thoroughly incorporate.

Now this next step is up to you. I used my teaspoon to form tidy little cookie bites (if you have a teaspoon you can do this with, just press into the spoon and slide out), but you could just as easily roll them in your palms.

I like the uniformity :).

Place them on a non-stick surface, like wax paper or a silpat mat and chill until firm.

They're like little chocolate cookie buttons. Perfect for taking on a hike, sneaking into a movie, packing in a lunch... eating for breakfast.

Enjoy'm :).
