Cacao No-Bake Cookies

     These cookies are a delicious and healthy way to satisfy that sweet tooth that demands attention on occasion! Sweetened with pure maple syrup, one of the better choices as far as sweeteners go, these cookies also have the added health benefits from cacao, which has been shown to fight free radicals (cancer-causing cells) among other things. A Cancer-fighting cookie? Can't beat that!

Cacao No-Bake Cookies


⅔ C maple syrup
¼ C Coconut oil
5 TB Cacao powder (Cocoa works too)
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ C unsweetened Almond Butter or peanut butter
1 C rolled oats
1 tsp Vanilla
