No-Bake Shakeology Cookies = No-Guilt Treats

My family LOVES dessert. My 11-year-old has been known to start asking for something sweet as soon as he wakes up in the morning. (I have to admit that he comes by his sweet tooth honestly—from both of his parents.) But this recipe for No-Bake Shakeology Cookies–which I found on the Shakeology website–may be a solution to our problem. These cookies are essentially chocolate-peanut butter balls, but better because they incorporate Shakeology–a nutritional protein shake. I made the cookies yesterday and my kids devoured them. When my son asked me for “cookies” at 6:30 am this morning, I said, “Sure. Take two.”

Tips:

  • The original recipe called for almond butter, but I only had peanut butter on hand. I also used non-organic honey.
  • Measuring honey and peanut butter can be a sticky mess, so I sprayed the measuring cups with non-stick spray. The ingredients just slid right out without sticking. I also sprayed non-stick spray on my hands before rolling the ingredients into balls.
  • These are very rich, so roll them into small balls. I made mine the size of large truffles, but next time I’ll make them smaller.
  • Consider cutting the recipe in half. The recipe made at least 20-25 medium-sized cookies, which is a lot even for my family of 5.
  • Enjoy!

Shakeology Cookie Recipe:
1 cup of raw almond butter (I used peanut butter)
1 cup of organic oatmeal (quick)
1/3 to 1/2 cup of organic honey (according to desired sweetness)
1 cup of Chocolate Shakeology (about two scoops)
Combine in bowl and mix well. Roll into balls (about a heaping teaspoon).
Optional: Roll the balls in crushed nuts or unsweetened coconut flakes before serving.
