SUGAR-FREE Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake cookies using honey & coconut oil. No oven heating up the house during the summertime plus it's CHOCOLATE #TexasHomesteader

I used to make chocolate no-bake cookies for our kids all the time when they were growing up. It was one of their faves and they begged me to make them often. Even our youngest who was not a big chocolate-flavor fan. (I know, hard to believe she’s actually my kid, huh??)

Anyway, our guest-poster Ashley recently shared with us her four-week journey of a diet with NO refined sugar at all!

This no-sugar version of chocolate no-bake cookies was shared on her FINAL WEEK’s update. What a great sugar-free spin on a favorite recipe!

And since it’s no-bake there’s the added bonus of not heating up the house on a hot summer’s day. You’re gonna want to make these SOON!

Then I stumbled on a recipe to make COOKIES with them. Cookies? Really!??  Hummmm….

Cookies made with instant mashed potatoes?? YES! These cookies were surprisingly delicious, lemony & cake-like - check out my recipe. #TexasHomesteader
