Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

I've been trying to eat less sugar lately, but I still need to satisfy my sweet tooth every now and then.

Enter these Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate No-Bake Cookies that are honestly insane. I don't know how they taste as good as they do with healthier ingredients, but I'm all in!

They start with a peanut butter chocolate oat mixture on the bottom and then you pour on a warm peanut butter topping. Once they set up, they have the perfect texture and the taste is too good to be true.
