No-Bake Nut Butter Cookies

Makes 1 dozen cookies

These fast, healthful no-bake cookies were developed by Lisa Cantkier. Here’s what she has to say:

With about 10 grams of protein per serving and additional nutritional benefits, these babies certainly don’t taste like they took seconds to prepare. They can be made nut-free, dairy-free and vegan by using soy butter and vegan protein powder (choose organic varieties for various health reasons).


  • 1 cup (250 ml) old fashioned, pure and uncontaminated, uncooked rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) of your favorite unsweetened nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter) or organic soy butter
  • 6 tablespoons (90 g) pure, natural whey protein powder or organic vegan protein powder
  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml) water
  • 1/4 cup (45 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips (choose higher cocoa varieties)


1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined.

2. If your mixture is too thick or dry, add a little more water and combine.

3. When all ingredients are mixed, form balls about the size of the palm of your hand, flatten and put on a plate.

4. Put the plate of cookies in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
