It’s almost the weekend, it’s warm out, and we’re dishing up Coconut Oatmeal Cookie Balls.

That’s a trifecta of goodies that calls for minimal words from me today 🙂

Feel free to clap if you’re so inclined.

Movin’ on to our decadent recipe of the day…

Coconut Oatmeal Cookie Balls are deliciously thick, chewy, and full of oaty texture. Ya gotta love oats to crush on these little balls of goodness.

There are plenty of no-bake cookie variations floating around the atmosphere, but these are unique in their thicker and moldable texture.

It makes for a fun afternoon of not-baking with the kids. Or just turn up the music and roll solo with these treats.

Made only with a handful of natural ingredients, these no-bake cooke balls are even semi healthy [ish]

If you’re into the clean thing, you can experiment with raw sugars in lieu of the granulated sugar we used. If you do some experimentation, I’d love to hear how it turned out!

Here’s to all things small and sweet. 

Did you make this?

  • In a saucepan set over medium heat, stir together the sugar, coconut oil, peanut butter, almond milk, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla. Stir to combine well. Continue to stir on medium heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil (bubbling all over the surface.) Let boil this way for 4 minutes, stirring constantly and scraping sides. Immediately remove saucepan from heat once your 4 minutes are up. Add vanilla (be careful, mixture will bubble up again) and stir well. Stir in the oats to thoroughly coat.
  • Carefully scoop mixture into heaping tablespoons; place cookie balls on parchment or wax paper to cool completely. If the mixture is very thick, you may need to help shape the cookie balls with hands, so wait until it's not too hot to touch. Rinse hands with water every once in awhile for ease of ball-shaping.
  • Cool completely at room temp or better yet, cover and chill in fridge and eat them straight from the fridge! They're most delicious when chilled.
