Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies

Shalini .GHello everyone,

It’s been awhile since we’ve shared a client’s pick. With all of the wonderful things we’ve been up too it’s been hard to keep up. But here’s another fabulous pick from our lovely lady Shalini. She’s always excited to share healthy yet delicious finds. And don’t forget if you have a recipe you would like to share, be sure to send it our way to feature it on our blog!

Please note: the recipes we share are referred to us by our clients and club members. All recipes are referenced accordingly at the bottom of the page with a link to their website.


Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies

Shalini found this recipe was found on The Soccer Mom Blog. You can find more tips on how to store your keto cookies by visiting The Soccer Mom Blog.

Ingredients

  • Creamy natural peanut butter
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Butter
  • Non-slip mixing bowls
  • Non-stick silicone baking mat
  • Cookie sheet
Keto Cookies
Chocolate and PB Cookies

Directions

Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.

TIP: We love these silicone baking mats because they’re non-stick and washable, so you can use them again and again!

In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract, melted butted, coconut flake and cocoa powder. Mix well by hand (the mixture will be gooey).

TIP: Feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons of Stevia if you like your cookies a little sweeter.

Scoop the no bake cookie batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon to gently shape each scoop into  into a 3″ cookie.

Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set.

Mother’s Day High Tea

It has been just over a week since our Mother’s Day High Tea and we are super excited to share some of the precious moments we were able to capture, thanks to Sweet Sunny Five Photography. We would like to thank, once again, everyone who helped out and contributed to our fundraiser. We were able to successfully raise another $1500 towards our kid’s trip to Japan in 2021, and we now sit at $3000.00 raised so far!

So thank-you again to: E.V.O Kitchen, Sweet Sunny Five Photography, Monigrams Coffee Roasters, Le Prix, The Spiced Leaf, Play with Clay, Glam and Glow by Reema, Meals Without Madness, Langdon Hall, and all of the individuals who donated amazing prizes for our participants to win. And another special thank-you to our families inside and outside the studio as well as our friends for helping with running the show (set-up and take-down)… and let’s not forget about the Volundads!! You guys rocked the show.

Student Highlight

iain and liamThis month we would like to highlight Iain and Liam who have been participating with our martial arts program over the past four years, and since then have been involved with coaching as well as all of the other events we host here at the studio.

Especially lately they have been coming out and getting involved with our 12 Hour Cycle Relay, Team Training with Seiwa Kai Canada, and completing the CN Tower Climb for the World Wildlife Fund. Their involvement has helped us fundraise over $2000 in the past six weeks for both our trip to Japan in 2021 and for the World Wildlife Fund.

Their hard work and enthusiasm has not gone unrecognized and we would like to thank them for their efforts today.

Keep up the great work!

And thank-you again to everyone who have also been supporting our efforts here at Kazoku Martial Arts Centre.
