3 No Bake Cookies

Save Recipe

You don’t need an oven or a lot of time for a good cookie recipe. My No Bake Cookies are rich and delicious with just a few wholesome ingredients each.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Stay cool with cookies this summertime without ever turning on your oven. My no bake cookies require no eggs, no flour, and no baking. I love creating no bake cookie recipes for all you because I believe everyone should feel confident when it comes to baking, no matter what equipment or time they have on hand! Since I’m a firm advocate for daily dessert, I created these three different cookie recipes for people that love sweets but are working with the bare essentials.

Making No Bake Cookies

All three of these easy n0-bake cookie recipes are made by combining just a few ingredients in one bowl. The secret to each cookie is having a perfect ratio of sticky wet ingredients (like honey or peanut butter) to dry ingredients (such as oat flour and shredded coconut). Having the right balance of wet to dry allows the cookies to keep their form once they’ve set in the refrigerator as opposed to baking them in the oven. Plus, they don’t require the same heat treatment that other cookies usually call for.

Egg Free and Gluten Free Cookies

If you’re trying to steer clear of eggs or gluten in your baking then these recipes are for you. All three of these no bake cookies are egg-free meaning they’re safe to eat raw and great for those that are vegan. Two of these recipes are made using oat flour, one of my favorite flour alternates. Don’t start panicking. Oat flour is simple to make — just blitz up some rolled oats in a food processor or blender to create a fine powder. Or learn How to Make Oat Flour with my simple recipe.

Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are an absolute staple in my house. The base of my Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies is made of only three ingredients that I bet you already have in your cupboard. They’re beyond delicious and chewy and look impressive when dipped in chocolate. Get my Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies recipe.

Chocolate No Bake Cookies

My Chocolate No Bake Cookies are like a chocolate macaroon and fudge brownie hybrid. Think chewy, chocolatey and rich with sweet coconut. These no bake cookies come together in under 10 minutes so your chocolate cravings can be satisfied at any time! Get my Chocolate No Bake Cookie recipe!

Chocolate Chip N0 Bake Cookies

Sometimes you just need a classic chocolate chip cookie. Using just 4 wholesome ingredients, my no-bake chocolate chip cookie recipe is nothing short of magic. It’s flour-free, gluten-free, and egg-free but loaded with rich cookie goodness. Get my Chocolate Chip No Bake Cookies recipe!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2018 at 12:02 pm

      Hi there,
      I am not sure what this is? If you are in India this is probably dairy butter, which is what I use here. That is what is important, fresh dairy butter.
      A block of baking margarine will work, but it is not so good,
      Gemma 😉

  7. Raisa on May 8, 2018 at 12:24 pm

    Really loved the recipes, please send more with few ingredients. Not sure about the no bake thing, though, I really love still warm cookies 🙂 More guilt-free recipes wuld be amazing, specially whit few ingredients. I hope that I’m not asking too much :/

    • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2018 at 1:57 pm

      Hi Raisa,
      You are not asking too much. We are working on more of this type of recipe, it is so popular.
      Thank you for your kind words, and for being in touch,
      Gemma 😉

  8. Leesa Nanan on May 4, 2018 at 8:51 am

    what are you ladies doing up so so early? 😉😁
    I guess your time zone right. I believe us in canada are like 5 hours behind.
    so when I am sleeping, Gemma is already up addressing her emails.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 5, 2018 at 1:04 pm

      Haha! Leesa, sometimes I am up in the middle of the night, thinking I need to get to a few comments, then back to bed!
      Well spotted, I have been found out,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Deen on May 4, 2018 at 7:31 am

    Hi Gemma for the chocolate chip cookies is it okay to use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar and for butter could I use coconut oil😉

    • Gemma Stafford on May 5, 2018 at 1:23 pm

      Hi there,
      I hope I am not answering this twice, but here goes. Yes, why not, this is a lovely sugar, and will work. The coconut oil will set up well for you too, a good alternative. Thank you for this question,
      Gemma 🙂

  10. Parth Bhave on May 4, 2018 at 4:29 am

    Hi Gemma,
    Great recipe, but I was a bit concerned about eating raw oat flour. Would you recommend if I baked or roasted the oat flour first? This way oat flour would get cooked and it might also impart a toasty flavor.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 5:00 am

      Hi there,
      You can toast these if you like, but oats are already ‘cooked’, processed as it were, so they are good to eat unless they are stale. Buy in amounts you can use up quickly and all will be well,
      Gemma 😉

      • Parth Bhave on May 7, 2018 at 2:58 am

        Thanks Gemma 😊

  11. Adelle on May 3, 2018 at 11:33 pm

    Trying this chocolate chip cookies recipe out today! I am actually going to make sugar cookie with it 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 2:47 am

      hi Adelle,
      good, let us know how you get on with this,
      Gemma 🙂

  12. Clshoop1 on May 3, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    Hi Emma,
    I am excited to try your no bake cookies. However, I do not have a microwave oven. How would you suggest I complete the melting first step. Directly on the stove top? Use a double boiler?
    Help and Thanks.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:05 am

      Hi there,
      I tend to use a double boiler, but my mum always goes directly to the stove, but you need to have the heat right down and be patient!
      Gemma 😉

  13. Donna J Woodworth on May 3, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Going to try them soon!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:05 am

      That is great Donna, I hope you like this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  14. Connie on May 3, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    Thanks, Gemma! If you leave out the chocolate chips, would it be an oatmeal cookie?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:22 am

      Hi Connie,
      Yes, and why not! That would work well for you. Add dried fruits, raisins, cranberries too, nuts, white chocolate, lots of ideas,
      Gemma 🙂

  15. Sharon Cook on May 3, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    They look delicious. Must try them

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:24 am

      Hi Sharon,
      Do try this recipe, I hope you enjoy them,
      Gemma 🙂

  16. Sweta on May 3, 2018 at 3:56 pm

    Hi Gemma, those recipes are spot on. My oven is in need of repair and am sure these cookies will get me out of despair 😄. Can’t wait to try them.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:25 am

      Hi there,
      Ovens can be temperamental things! I hope your can be repaired soon, but meantime you can try this, and other no bake recipes here too. ( more here!
      Gemma 🙂

  17. Lynnette cheatom on May 3, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    I was trying to pull up recipe for your cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting. Unable to log in Help

  18. Janet BOTet on May 3, 2018 at 2:50 pm

    Must try these cookies of yours. Sounds and looks great! Thanks. First for me!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:34 am

      Hi Janet,
      Good to have you with us, I do hope you like this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  19. Karen Boehlert on May 3, 2018 at 12:16 pm

    Thank you Gemma! These are perfect recipes to have on hand with the weather warming up (finally)
    And with such easy, on hand ingredients, we can have cookies any time we want them.

  20. Parth Bhave on May 3, 2018 at 12:10 pm

    Hi Gemma,
    Amazing recipe but I am a bit concerned about eating raw oat flour. Would you recommend baking it or roasting it before use in the recipe? This way the oats would get cooked and one might also get a toasty flavor.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:55 am

      Hi there,
      You can bake the flour if you wish, or toast it, but it is not generally necessary. Oats are already ‘cooked’ to a degree. Buy as fresh as you can, and use it up quickly, all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

  21. Jo on May 3, 2018 at 12:05 pm

    Thanks! My oven has been out for a very long time. I still have one gas burner left that still works!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:56 am

      Hi Jo,
      Ah! that is too bad. I hope you can get it repaired soon. You can use the burner to melt the ingredients for these cookies, gently does it, and keep an eye on it.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

  22. Nancy Price on May 3, 2018 at 11:38 am

    They all look good. I will be trying all three recipes.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 4, 2018 at 4:57 am

      Gemma 🙂

  23. Connie on May 3, 2018 at 10:46 am

      Thank you Connie, it would be useless without you bold bakers,
      Gemma 🙂

  24. kdj on May 3, 2018 at 9:34 am
