No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies | Haute & Healthy Living

I’m sure I have said this many times before but I have this huge love for chocolate and peanut butter. There is just something about that combo that gets me every time. So naturally, I tend to experiment with lots of different recipes that incorporate these ingredients. My latest concoction are these No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies. The best part about this recipe is….yes…the chocolate…and the peanut butter, BUT it also contains a mystery ingredient that no one would ever guess. Drumroll please….. the secret ingredient is kefir! This recipe is absolutely amazing for digestive health because kefir contains over two billion live active cultures per one cup serving, which can help replenish those healthy bacteria in your digestive tract and improve overall digestion. Plus, the fibre from the oats and coconut keeps everything running smoothly….if you know what I mean…

These cookies are also super filling, and would make a great snack or healthy treat for on the go! Whip up a batch to store in the fridge or freezer for a nutrient rich sweet treat!
