What started out as friendly banter between myself and some blogging friends last year has ironically morphed into a reality.

After posting a slew of no bake recipes like these no bake cashew coconut protein bars, no bake s’mores protein cookies and no bake kettle corn granola bars, my happy little vegemite friend Lindsay joked that I should change my blog name to ‘The No Bake Blogger’

The main reason for me starting this trend on The Big Man’s World was due to not being in possession of a kitchen gadget most people swore by- The elusive food processor. For the most part, most of the recipes I’d seen shared by fellow bloggers or on other sites all called for dried fruits, nuts and other ingridients all being pulsed together to form balls, bars or bites- Something which was impossible on my end. However, for the first half of last year, my breakfast was the same thing day in day out- This Nut Butter Breakfast Cookie Dough for one. I randomly came up with them on a whim when I realised eating oatmeal at my desk was deemed (amongst my colleagues at that time) bizarre. I still wanted my oatmeal in some form, but without the need for a bowl, microwave over even basic tupperware. Oh, and judgement too. These cookie dough balls fit the bill and voila- Needed no food processor or baking to whip up. To keep things exciting, I’d switch up the combinations and try out different flavours.

In turn, I realised I didn’t need ANY dried fruits pulsed together to make such bars or balls- Just an understanding of what flours work with what protein powders, nut butters and any other add ins. Soon enough, the thought of needing a food processor went out the window and I was making my own no bake meals and snacks. (Side note- I made sure NONE of the recipes in my upcoming e-cookbook need this gadget at all!) 

Ever since then, I’ve loved coming up with new combinations, new flavours and trialling out different combinations of flours which in turn, result in cookies, cookie doughs and bars which are perfect to snack on or have as a substantial meal because let’s be real- Doesn’t cookies or cookie dough for breakfast sound ridiculously appealing? 

Today’s recipe was between this one and a vanilla cake batter one. I asked on Facebook which should be shared first and this one won by a landslide and I’m not surprised- A single serve batch of no bake cookies which taste like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup but is healthy, filling and starts your day with chocolate? I think so.

Like most of the other no bake cookie/cookie dough recipes, these Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Breakfast Cookies take barely any time to prep. They are  gluten free, vegan, very high in protein and low in sugar- You’d be surprised at just how much they taste like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup

A common question I’m often emailed about or asked on Facebook is which gluten free flour blend or coconut/almond flour blend is best. I thought such a blend wouldn’t be available, unless you make your own….until now. With a majority of my reader’s from America, I’d recommend the one’s sold by my friend Rachel here. This is not an affiliate link or anything of the sort- Reading through the overwhelmingly positive feedback and success rate when it comes to using these particular flour blends in cooking (not an easy feat with the unpredictable nature of flours calling for Coconut/Almond/gluten free or a combination of all three), it is the perfect blend for all my recipes using gluten free flours!

While I won’t be changing my blog name to ‘The No Bake Blogger’, I’m going to run with the title and continue sharing my love of no bake recipes, and hopefully, try to stick to one per week- Weather it be in cookie or breakfast cookie dough form- It’ll happen. Now go on….Set the timer for five minutes and make these Healthy No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Breakfast Cookies

Love, the NBB.

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup gluten free flour blend (can sub for gf oat flour/rolled oats/oat bran)
  2. 2 T peanut flour (can sub for PB2 or almond flour)
  3. 2 T cocoa powder (add an extra T for a richer, dark chocolate flavour)
  4. 1-2 T sweetener of choice (can omit for a richer, dark chocolate flavour)
  5. pinch sea salt
  6. 2 T peanut butter (can sub for any nut butter)
  7. 1/4- 1/2 cup dairy free milk*
  8. peanut butter chips**
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, peanut flour, cocoa powder, salt and sweetener and mix well. Add the peanut butter- The mixture should be very crumbly.
  2. Slowly, add the dairy free milk of choice 1 tablespoon at a time until a very thick and firm batter is formed. Stir through the peanut butter chips until fully incorporated.
  3. Using your hands, form into cookie shapes (I made three large, palm sized cookies) and press firmly on a plate with parchment paper. Add extra peanut butter chips on top and eat immediately or for a firmer cookie, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Notes
  1. * Depending on the liquid you use, it could be more or less. Add it in very slowly until desired consistency
  2. ** For a vegan version, make you're own peanut butter chips using this tutorial or this tutorial. As these cookies require no baking they will remain intact and not melt into it.
  3. Cookies can be kept at room temperature. You can make a bigger batch and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 2 months.

  1. I NEED these Peanut Butter chips! Good thing I come to Australia in a few DAYS….
    Oh, and speaking of: You know I have a long fligth from Sydney to San Diego, so I think about makeing a no bake session with all these recipe of yours before I board the plane….

  2. is it bad that i DO have a food processor but literally the thought of lugging it out, using it, washing it, drying it (chopping off my fingers) and making a mess makes me cringe =l I work faster hitting things with jars to smush them.. LUCKILY you are my savior and the fact i can make these without devoting my entire day to it (unless in the form of daydreaming thoughts) is so fabulous! and you def posted these right after i ate a reeses waffle soooo once again (twinning emoji) although i wouldnt say they should win over cake batter by a landslide unless its the dixie chicks rendition. OH WELL guess i’ll have to wait for that recipe and take TEN MINUTES to make both 😀

  3. These look so yummy! Even though I DO have a food processor, it’s a lot of work to pull it out, wash it afterwards, and put it back away in the back of the pantry…so I’m all for these kinds of recipes!

  4. The most used appliance in my kitchen is my food processor. I really love making hummus and dip so I use it frequently. However, I hate lugging it out for breakfast, so I enjoy your single serve cookies as they make my life easier. I think you should do a raspberry mocha or a blueberry lemon cookie next 🙂

  5. Kicking myself for finishing up my packet of peanut flour- these look amazing! Definitely trying out this summer when I’m in London & able to replenish my stock! When I used to work in an office, my colleagues would always comment on “how healthy & creative my lunches looked”—> clearly they wanted a bite :)!

  6. This is an awesome idea! My cupboards are completely empty at the moment (last day in my flat, woohoo!) but I will be making this when I get home from Australia! And yes, I always get judged for what I eat at work. Or rather, what I don’t eat – the crappy biscuits in our office tin.

  7. You and I must be on the same wavelength right now because I’m getting ready to share a Peanut Butter Chocolate smoothie. It’s too delicious of a combo to pass up. It does require a blender though. Oops.

  8. Reese’s are my favorite candy, so you bet I’d love these! I do own a food processor, though it’s a tiny one (pesto is made in like, four batches). I think it’s AMAZING that you’re creating all these gems without one, but I am patiently waiting for the day when/if you do get one. It’s pretty sweet 🙂

  9. You totally could rock the No Bake Blogger title, Arman. Seriously. Your no-bake creations look amazing! That could come in handy as I’ve heard that it’s not even worth turning your oven on when you live in the city during the summer. Also, I kinda want to give you a food processor as your ‘Welcome to America’ gift. Is that allowed? 🙂
