I have a friend and fellow weight watcher member at my local meeting who loves salty snacks and asked if I could create something for her. I love making up no-bake cookies as there is no fuss and they come together pretty easy. These sweet & salty no-bake cookies are the perfect combination for those who love salty snacks but still want that sweet taste to it. They are very easy to prepare and just 68 calories, 1-2PP if following WW.
- Crushed pretzels
- Mini chocolate chips
- Peanut butter
- Caramel sauce
- Vanilla extract
I buy the no sugar added Smuckers caramel syrup, if you can’t find this brand any caramel syrup will work in this recipe.
I find adding a little water to your hands while you are rolling the cookies into balls will help keeo the mixture from sticking to your hands.
The cookies will store well in the fridge for up to 4 days.
I use Quaker oats but quick oats will work just as well. You can use any kind of nut butter in these, I prefer them with peanut butter but almond butter will also be delicious.
The great thing about no-bake cookies is you can play around with the ingredients, you can add in some dried fruit, any kind of chopped nuts, and any kind of chocolate chips, I have made these with white chocolate chips before and they were so good.
Sweet & salty no bake cookies
- 1 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup crushed pretzels (I used 30g of Rold Gold tiny twist)
- 1.5 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup light peanut butter (I use Kraft, Canadian brand)
- 1/4 cup Smucker's no sugar added caramel sauce
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mix all of your ingredients in a bowl and then refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Using about 1 Tbsp of the mix, roll into a ball, you can lightly wet your hands to help them to not stick.
- Keep stored in the fridge.
- Makes 22 no bake cookies
Made these last week, used maple syrup (the real stuff!) instead of honey….OMG delish!!
Making them again for family, for Christmas (along with Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana cookies)
Thank you again for coming up with easy, WW friendly cookie recipes! (Amazing the number of points in the
standard cookie recipe….6 or more points PER cookie! Oh, no!)
Is it 2sp per cookie? Thanks. WarriorValerie
Yes 2 points each
Why not quick oats? Just wondering…
Just preference, you can use quick oats if you wish
Can you use PB2 instead of peanut butter
Yes but I would use it in wet form
Hey just wondering if you have a good alternative to peanut butter that wouldn’t alter to points? I know I’m weird just really HATE peanut butter but the cookies look amazing and I want to try them!
Hi Denise, you need something “sticky” you could try honey or maple syrup, although I am not sure if that would alter the points, are all nut butters out?
Where can you buy the Smucker’s No Sugar Added Caramel Sauce?
Hi Gabi, not sure if I picked it up in the U.S or I found it here, I buy so many different foods I forget sometimes 🙁 Did you try walmart?
Hi Kate, I ended up finding it at Food Basics. Can’t wait to try this recipe! I love all your recipes. They are delicious and have helped me so much on my journey! Just made your Oatmeal Banana Jam Muffins. So good! Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful recipes! ?
Awesome, so glad you found it and thank you… I am so happy you are enjoying the recipes 🙂
I gave a batch to my sister who is also on WW. Making another batch for me today. They are fantastic! I love your recipes! They are healthy, easy to follow and taste amazing! Thank you for sharing them! ?
That is awesome, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes 🙂
Do these freeze well?
I have never frozen them since they do last a good 4-5 days in the fridge, I would think they would freeze ok though
OMG these are so good! Great recipe! ?
So glad you enjoyed them Anthony 🙂
Wondering what is the sweetener in the caramel sauce?
Hi, sorry I don’t have any in my cupboard at the moment, maybe try google?
I made these recently. They tasted wonderful but didn’t stick together very well and fell apart easily. Getting ready to make another batch. Any suggestions you might have for me as to what may help make them stick together better.
Thank you so much!
Hi Sheri, maybe just increase one of the wet ingredients or PB just a tiny pinch, and wet your hands a little while shaping them
