No Bake Cookie Cups (FODMAP & vegan)

I’m finally done with my yoga teacher training program! Woo hoo! It only took me a year (sarcasm). Most of the other students in my program did it in 1 semester. But I’m finished and it feels SO GOOD! Now I’ll finally have more time to post all these recipes I have stockpiled!

Let’s get to it, shall we?

I debated if I should call these treats “cookies” or “granola bars”. I didn’t think anybody would believe these all chocolate things were granola bars. But at the same time, they don’t have the massive amount of corn syrup or sweetened condensed milk most no bake cookies have. Well, either way, they are a delicious treat perfect for taking with you on the go. They are FODMAP friendly too! Store them in the fridge or freezer and thaw one out whenever you need a tasty morsel!

No Bake Cookie Cups

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar + 2 tablespoons almond milk (or 1/3 cup honey if you aren’t fodmap)
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips (or your favorite chocolate chip)
muffin pan liners

In a medium saucepan over low heat melt the peanut butter, sugar, almond milk (or honey) and coconut oil and stir until combined. Add the cocoa powder and stir again. Remove from heat and add the oatmeal and stir. Last, add the chocolate chips. They will melt fast.
Spoon the mixture into a lined muffin pan, filling as full as you would like. Store in the refrigerator.

Lilly goes on walks nearly every day unless it’s too hot for her. We live at the top of a hill so she’s always really fast fairly quick on the way down the hill, but on the way back home she is sooooo slooooow. Then as soon as we get home she collapses on the cold tile floor.
