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.

These unbaked brownies, made with dates, nuts, chocolate, and other good and healthy ingredients, come together in 15 minutes.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup raw cashews, almonds or walnuts (or a combination)
  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¾ cup (packed) pitted and roughly chopped soft medjool dates
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ¾ 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
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients. Process until finely crumbled.
  2. 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.
  3. With wet hands, press the dough into an 8x4-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate the dough until firm.
  4. 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!
