Strawberry No Bake Cookies

Servings 16 cookies


  • 2/3 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/2 cup agave
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.2 oz bag freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 2/3 cup quick oats


  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine peanut butter, agave, and white chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk together.
  • Add vanilla. Whisk again.
  • Open the corner of the freeze dried strawberry bag – just a small amount. Then, crush the strawberries in the bag with a rolling pin or your hands. You want a powder with some small chunks.
  • Add entire bag of strawberry powder and oats – mix well with a spoon.
  • Drop onto a plate or cutting board. The consistency will be like play dough. Shape into whatever you desire.


How to Use:
Athletes: Nothing like something to help calm that need for sweets – this is a good balance of dessert with some redeeming nutritional qualities as well – healthy fats, whole grains, and fruit!
Healthy Eating: As I always say, enjoy whatever food makes you happy. If you want the real deal dessert, eat it and move on. But if you want to play around with a dessert that also packs a little extra nutrition, give these guys a whirl.
Kids: Strangely enough – my kids liked the freeze dried strawberries more than the cookies. But, they also gladly ate the cookies.
Other Thoughts:
  • I know it’s a little annoying that I used agave in there – but you can find it at Aldi for a reasonable price. My reasoning here is that I didn’t want the strong flavor of honey – yet it needs to be a sticky sweetener to hold things together. You could try honey, like I use in my No Bake Cookies, but it will change the flavor.
  • I froze half of these and that worked great too. They even taste great right out of the freezer.
  • Put in the refrigerator to set. They will remain sticky if you just leave them on the counter at room temperature. Store in the fridge too.
  • I have to imagine most nut butters would work in these too. I thought about using cashew butter – but Aldi doesn’t sell that!
  • Store in the refrigerator.
