These 7 ingredient fudgy no-bake cookies taste like candy bars. Gluten free and no refined sugar!


  • 1/2 cup honey*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil*
  • 1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds*
  • 1 and 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (I used dry roasted + salted)


  1. Line a large cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, cocoa powder, and coconut oil. Stir until all is melted. The mixture will be very thick. Allow to boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and salt until completely smooth.
  3. Add the sunflower seeds and peanuts, mixing well to make sure all is coated with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture. Using a spoon, drop mixture into small piles on prepared baking sheet. I measured roughly 1.5 Tablespoons of “dough” each, to make 15 cookies. Make them as big or small as you wish.
  4. Transfer cookies to the refrigerator and allow to set, about 1 hour. Serve cookies immediately to avoid the chocolate from melting. Store cookies in the refrigerator (covered) for up to 7 days.


  1. Sweetener: Maple syrup may be used instead of honey.
  2. Coconut Oil: Only butter is a suitable substitute.
  3. Sunflower Seeds: Instead of sunflower seeds, use all peanuts or substitute another nut.
  4. Nut Free Version: Use sunflower seed butter and all sunflower seeds.
