No Bake Almond Butter & Chocolate "Cookies"


The picture above does not do these cookies any justice! Sure they do not look that appetizing, but trust me, they are!! I needed to make something quick for a last minute beach day, so i started going through my cupboards to see what I had. With a few basic ingredients this recipe came together quite nicely! I added some maca powder and flaxseed for added vitamins, minerals, fiber and omegas! 

Ingredients

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
pinch salt
3/4 cup smooth almond butter
1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp maca powder
1 Tbsp flaxseed

Optional add-ins: shredded coconut, dried cherries, vanilla flavoured protein powder

Directions

1. In a sauce pan, over medium heat, add honey, coconut butter, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir until 
    melted together. Stir in the almond butter until melted.
2. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, maca, flaxseed, and oats. 
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop by spoonfuls and place in the fridge for 1 hour
    or until hardened. The recipe should make 20 cookies.
