We call it liquid gold at our house, and our stinginess roars to the forefront when our boys start liberally pouring the maple syrup over their waffles. We become highly unreasonable guardians of the sweet amber liquid.

“Pour slowly! That’s enough! That’s the good stuff, you know?!”

When it comes to baked (or no-bake) goods, pure maple syrup is the ideal sweetener. It’s an unprocessed sweetener, it imparts a rich flavor and a little goes a long way.

If I’m going to tempt my older son and husband with any treats, there has to be some redeeming “healthy” factor. And these no-bake cookies have plenty…they’re full of protein-rich almond butter and almond milk, and fiber-filled oats and they’re sweetened with maple syrup and a ripe, mashed banana. If you follow a vegan diet, this treat is for you, too!

The trick to getting these cookies to hold together is to boil the mixture until it thickens and reaches about 205 degrees F, which takes about 10 minutes. This also caramelizes the maple syrup, which lends a caramel taste to the cookies.

That’s never a bad thing.

They look delicious. Do you think that using regular milk and peanut butter would work? Thanks :)
