Since my first encounter with these little bits of chocolate/peanut butter heaven, it became my mission to create a much healthier version! I’ve made this recipe more times than I can count, which means I’m extra glad that these Healthy No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar free AND vegan-friendly!
