In addition to being a delightful treat day snack, these no-bake cookies are a huge life-saver when you're on the verge of wrecking your progress and NEEEEED something sweet during the week. Whip up a batch. They're super fast. We find after eating about half a cookie, the cravings calm and we're good to go. Nice to have on hand for emergencies. ;)



  1. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper. In a pot, combine the erythritol, almond milk, yogurt, cocoa powder, protein powder, and salt. Bring ingredients to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly and being careful not to let the mixture burn, then cook until the cocoa powder and sugar have fully dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. 

  2. Add the oats, peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until well combined, then let cool for about 15 minutes. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared sheet pan, gently pressing the center to flatten slightly. (You should have about 18 cookies.) Chill for a few hours until firm. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
