Inside Scoop: Delicious stove top Peanut Butter No Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies.


So my brother has been visiting us for the past couple of weeks, and lucky me, he likes to cook for us. He’s a no recipe, but more guidelines kind of guy, which is cool because he whips up sweet treats on a whim.

Well anyway, we had a day where he decided to cook up these little stovetop cookies, which were so undeniably delicious. Not too sure if you guys remember (or still eat) the chocolate bar Eatmore- that chewy, peanut, bar of goodness? I don’t know, people always thought my chocolate bar choices were weird, because instead of the traditional I usually went for Big Turks, or Eatmore, but they clearly are the best chocolate bars out there. So, was I ever happy when I was presented with a copycat peanut butter coconut Eatmore.

I’m actually addicted to these cookies. They are chewy, chocolatey, sweet and delicious, high in protein, healthy fats, low in sugar and contain no refined sugar. They take little to no time to prep (and you could probably even re-create them raw and they would work- I’ll have to try this one), can be eaten as breakfast cookies, snack, dessert etc.

I’m literally hooked, and it’s safe to say I will be coming up with so many modified versions of this recipe.

So, thanks to my lovely vagabond guitar playing brother Jasper Blue you guys now have the best copycat peanut butter coconut eat more chocolate cookie recipe.

    What is the nutritional information? Serving size? How many does this make?

    • Mirna Sharafeddine

      Hello Marci, this would make about 10 large and 15 small cookies. We don’t currently calculate Nutritional Information but it would be around 250-350 calories depending on the cookie size and if you’re having the small size it’s 1/2 a tablespoon of natural sugar from maple syrup per cookie. Definitely much better than anything bought from the store. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

  2. Penny

    Could I substitute buttermilk I know it’s not as healthy just windering

    • Mirna Sharafeddine

      Hi Penny, we have never tried with buttermilk or heavy cream but imagine it would work (and probably taste incredibly delicious). Please, if you do this could you let us know how it turns out 🙂

  3. Aga

    These turned out delicious! These were the changes I made:
    -Used 1/4 cup maple syrup and 6 packets of stevia.
    -Added only 1/4 cup peanuts
    -Used lite coconut milk as it’s what I had on hand.
    I added chia seeds in the end.
    Formed 1tbs sized cookies
    Will be making time and time again. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Mirna Sharafeddine

      Aga we are so happy to hear that and thank you for sharing. We’ll definitely give your version with stevia a try 🙂 Perhaps liquid stevia could work too.

  4. Katie

    Is the coconut milk from a can? I’ve purchased a wrong kind for a different recipe and don’t want to mess up? They look delicious!!

    • Naughty Nutrition

      Hi Katie, that’s a good question, this recipe works best if you use canned coconut milk. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

      • Be

        These look delicious – can they be frozen ?

        • Naughty Nutrition

          They are so yummy! Yes, they can be frozen up to 6 weeks.

  5. Janine

    I have read that the peanut is the least nutritious nut out there. Agree? Could we use almond butter then? Will be trying these very soon! Thanks!

    • Naughty Nutrition

      Great question Janine. If we’re speaking strictly, almond butter is slightly more nutritious than peanut butter. However, peanut butter can be quite nutritious and we kinda love it (it’s also more affordable). So, if you have no issues with it you can absolutely enjoy it in moderation. If not, you can definitely try it with almond butter and let us know how it turns out. You can also read more about peanut butter and how to choose the best option here:
