Healthy No Bake Oatmeal Cookies Recipe with oats, hemp seeds, coconut oil, almond butter, cacao nibs, and almost sugar free. | ifoodreal.com

These are great snack cookies because they contain only 1 tbsp of maple syrup per entire batch. Eating these healthy no bake oatmeal cookies would be equivalent to toasting an oat cake (if it existed), spreading with coconut oil and almond butter, and then sprinkling with raw shelled hemp seeds. Since learning that hemp hearts contain very few carbs compared to flax and chia, I have been liberally sprinkling them on my toasted brown rice cakes smothered with almond butter. So, that is where inspiration for cookies comes from.

Again, Vancouver is boiling hot, so I wanted a cookie but a snack cookie. Reality hit me hard this summer as last year shorts do not deserve an Instagram selfie. Ouch. All that wine and more. Superfood green smoothie with Vega and hemp hearts for dinner. Yikes. I love green smoothies but not as dinner replacement.

As I was scooping the dough, naturally I used the back of a scoop to flatten balls into cookies. Voila, healthy no bake oatmeal cookies. What do we fill them with?! Cacao nibs make a perfect filling – crunchy and give cookies the chocolate factor without added sugar. If you have never tried them before, you should ASAP. On their own cacao nibs are bitter but when added to anything even lightly sweet they give me a feeling I’m eating chocolate chips. Chocolate drizzle on top is optional.

Seriously, enjoy! Even my kids liked these and they are usually not into any of my no bake snacks. I used salted roasted almond butter which was delicious. However, I realize it is not as nutritious as raw but that is what I grabbed at the store not reading the label. It was on sale LOL. Maybe that is why kids loved these cookies?!
