E-Z Make Cookies by Stacey Antine, MS, RDN

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

We do eat cookies at HealthBarn USA! These energy-packed, no-bake, tasty treats are made with natural ingredients and are fun to make with friends.  (Because no oven is used, E-Z Make Cookies is the ideal recipe for kids to prepare without adult supervision.) 

Make a double-batch to prepare for your next snack-attack, and keep extras cool in the refrigerator (they taste even better chilled).


1½ cups whole grain cereal* 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter ¼ cup honey ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons instant nonfat dry milk powder 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In bowl, crush cereal into very small pieces. Add peanut butter, honey, dry milk, and chocolate chips.  With hand or spoon, mix together to form a ball.

  2. Scoop 1 heaping teaspoon of cereal mixture and roll into a 1-inch-round ball.  Repeat with remaining cereal mixture. Let set 10 minutes to firm up. If not eating right away, wrap and refrigerate up to 1 week.

Makes 18 servings (1 cookie per serving).
