No-Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

The Fork & Beans Advent Calendar:

Brooke, over at Crackers on the Couch,

had this fabulous idea to do the

“12 Days of Christmas”

Cookie Countdown on her blog.

So when she asked me if I would de-glutenize and veganize

her amazing cookie recipes and post alongside with her,

there was no way that I could say no!

So without further ado,

allow me to warm up my vocal chords:

“me me me me me me meeeeeeeee.

do re me fa so la ti do.


(((The pipes are a bit rusty)))

Okay, here we go:

*give me a C chord please*

It was snowing during the photo shoot…

This was the first time I have ever made

a no-bake type of cookie

and I must say that this is my kind of cookie.

The fool-proof, lazy person’s cookie.

You cannot go wrong with the Peanut Butter Delight!

The trick is simply to not eat all of the dough

from the saucepan.

I think I barely had enough to make a dozen. 

Makes 2 dozen.

Check out Brooke’s recipe that I barely converted 🙂

    • Be careful though, Lysa! You *will* find yourself eating from the saucepan to the point where you won’t have much left to form as cookies 🙂

  6. Here you are again, with the peanut butter! Man. (These do look awfully good, though)

    and, I thought that there were 12 days of Christmas..

    Isobelle thinks Cara has something else up her sleeve..

    • Ah! I meant that I thought there were 25 days of christmas
      Too much Kombucha for me.

      • I told you that we needed an intervention for you. It’s worrying me, Isobelle. It’s interrupting your daily life and I’m concerned!

        • No! It’s NOT true.

          I just really like it. I can stop if I want to.

          I’ll cut down the consumption a little bit and I’ll be fine.

          December 1, 2011
          • Okay, so after posting that last comment I looked over at my desk and saw this:

            I admit it now! It’s true. All of it.

            December 1, 2011
            • I almost just spit my coffee out! I need to stop drinking while reading your comments. I should have known that would happen. I’m coming over right now! I know a great place that will take care of you…

              December 2, 2011
              • I hope you didn’t burn yourself! Sorry! 🙂

    What a GREAT idea! Lucky for me I can’t eat oats or I’d be even fuller than I am from the Buckwheat Pancakes I just ate. I’ve never, ever cooked a pancake through its middle and a 2 year old can do that. Your good Karma must be rubbing off on me. Can’t wait to see what you two have in store for us tomorrow.

    December 1, 2011
    • I would love to take credit for the pancake but something tells me that your inner pancake goddess is coming out into full life 🙂

    Funny, I was just thinking about this type of cookie the other day and craving them. I know I didn’t have a recipe, so I’m glad to have one now (and not have to fake it, which I’m terrible at)!

    December 1, 2011
    • See Sarah? I got you covered! 🙂

  10. THESE LOOK PERFECR! And no bakes are my kind of cookie, too. I’ve been sitting on a recipe for them from my old blog, but I’m too lazy to make and photograph them – am I the epitome of laziness, or what? That, and I always eat the entire batch at once.. which is just terrible.

    December 1, 2011
    • You and your laziness. Either you really *are* the epitome of laziness or you are being hard on yourself. I’m gonna go with the latter, seeing that: a). you work; b). go to school full-time; and c). still manage to do amazing things on your blog… Sounds like the opposite of laziness to me. Don’t make me come back there and kick you in your shins…

  11. Yaaaaay! Yaaaaaay! Yaaaaay! These look great! (And cuter than mine. Dammit.)

    December 1, 2011
    • Oh give me a break, Brooke! hahaha Isn’t this fun??? weeeeeeeeee!

      December 1, 2011
  12. No bake cookies are the best! These are right up my alley – peanut butter, chocolate, easy…I don’t need more to convince me to make these!!!
    As ive said before, i love your writing and your humor– your posts always make me smile and often actually laugh out loud 🙂 pure talent…that’s what you are!

    • I was just thinking about you last night and was going to text you but it was a little late in CO to do so. Hi Friend! That’s all I wanted to say 🙂

      December 1, 2011
  13. Which fonts are you using on your pictures ? They look lovely 🙂

    December 1, 2011
    • Hi Katharina! I use (I bought their yearly membership) which gives me access to all sorts of fonts. But the one you like is called “Love Ya Like a Sister”. It’s the best $30/year I have spent! 🙂

      December 1, 2011
  14. wow- these look delicious! i’m imagining myself eating one right now and they are chewy with the perfect balance of chocolate and peanut butter! yummm, cara! 😉

    December 1, 2011
    • You have quite the imagination, Caitlin! It is as if you are heree, stuffing your face alongside of me (well, I am sure you are more refined than I am and eat a little more delicately than that) hehe!
