No Bake, No Stovetop Cookie Bites

When I was growing up, my mom made these great no-bake cookies all the time as an afterschool snack. They were super delicious and full of oats, chocolate, and peanut butter. Such a good combination! However, the recipe also had a stick of margarine and loads of sugar, making this a treat I haven’t made as often for my own kids. One day I was trying to make a raw-ish brownie out of dates, nuts, and chocolate. Instead, my creation tasted just like those no-bake cookies I loved so much as a child.

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews almonds or walnuts (or a combination)
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed pitted and roughly chopped soft medjool dates
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or pure maple syrup


  • In a food processor, combine all the ingredients. Process until finely crumbled.
  • Continue processing until the mixture starts to hold together into a mass. If your mixture seems dry, add water 1 teaspoon at a time until it adheres.
  • With wet hands, press the dough into an 8x4-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate the dough until firm.
  • Remove the parchment and the chilled dough from the loaf pan and cut into 1-inch by 1-inch cookie pieces. These cookies keep nicely well-wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 10 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

    This is a perfect recipe for me. I recently transferred to a new apartment and I haven’t brought most of my kitchen utensils. I think I can do this easily. I can have my homemade cookies now! Thank you!
