Gluten-free, sugar-free no bake cookies

I got this recipe from an agave cookbook called "Everyday Agave", but tweaked it a bit. These cookies are so tasty! They are perfect for lymies like myself who have an addiction to treats...but can't have sugar or gluten


1/2 cup cream
1 cup agave
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups quick oats (if you are concerned about the cross-contamination of gluten they sell gluten-free quick oats)


In a medium saucepan add cream, agave, butter and cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until peanut butter is mostly dissolved. Add quick oats and stir until fully coated.

Spoon mounds onto cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm.
