Chocolate is one of my favorite flavors for most sweet treats — especially during the holidays.
Chocolate makes everything better.
So when you mix peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, unsweetened dark cocoa powder, oats and salt together,
then form them into little balls, and chill them — you magically create these delectable Vegan No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
They are yummy mouthfuls of chocolate, oats and peanut butter goodness.
Tip: Use Hershey’s 100% cocao “Special Dark Blend” or your favorite unsweetened dark cocoa powder– for best results with this recipe.
