I love this! However, I would love to know the conversion for agave nectar back to sugar? I prefer the organic turbinado sugar from Costco – I find it less processed than the nectar and it’s easier for me to keep in the house. Love all of the other changes though – and we love coconut oil! Costco has that now, too!
- 1/2 cup agave nectar can use honey if not vegan
- 1/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 2 cups gluten-free oats
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan, mix together agave and cocoa powder. Heat over medium heat until combined. Stir in almond milk and coconut oil and bring to a boil. Continue stirring and boil for one minute.
Remove pan from heat and stir in almond butter, oats, coconut, vanilla extract, and salt.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop cookies onto wax paper. Let the cookies set up for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator before serving. Store the cookies in an air-tight container in refrigerator for up to one week.
- Note-You can use honey instead of the agave if you don’t need to make vegan cookies. You can also use regular rolled oats if you don’t need the cookies to be gluten-free. You can also replace the almond milk with your favorite milk. And you can also swap peanut butter for the almond butter. These cookies are very adaptable! Enjoy!
I love no-bake cookies — in fact, I just posted my own yesterday afternoon! I love that yours are not only gluten-free, but vegan. They sound great!
