  • 1 cuo natural, creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup oats, instant or quick
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, shreds or flakes
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
    In a medium microwave-safe bowl (large enough to add oats and coconut later), add peanut butter and honey. Whisk together until well mixed.
    Heat in 20-second increments in the microwave until warm and fragrant, and the mixture begins to dry out (about 4-7 rounds). Whisk in between heating increments. *Stovetop instructions in Notes.
    Add oats and coconut to the peanut butter mixture. Stir and fold until thoroughly combined and thickened.
    Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, evenly spaced apart. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness.
    Chill in the freezer for 15-25 mins, until firm.
    Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. The texture will be about the same in both environments.


 *Stovetop Instructions: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add peanut butter and honey. Whisk until well incorporated. Stir occasionally, heating until this mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and carefully pour over the dry mixture.
