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.

    Dear Gemma,
    Thanks for your recipes , I have tried the chocolate chips couple of times and always worked for everyone, I even managed to sell some of the cookies😁
    I would like to ask, since the cookies needs to be in the fridge, how long does it last in the temperature room? I want to make this as a business because everybody crafting for healthy snacks… and sure I will try your other healthy recipes… thanks again for sharing.. Greetings from Indonesia… and wish you the best with your new project❤️

      Hi Astried,
      Here in the US, and in other parts of the world too, food produced for sale or supply is governed by the Food Safety authorities.
      The first rule is ‘do no harm’ and that means that the food needs to be produced in a hygienically safe facility, the ingredients stored at the correct and appropriate temperature, and the point of sale should also be appropriate to the goods, if things need to be kept chilled then they should be chilled.
      Now, all of that said, I know that these rules are not everywhere, and some foods do better than others outside of refrigeration. Room temperature is also an arbitrary thing, in Ireland, it rarely goes over 20C, in LA where I live it is often over 25C. I would not be happy to leave food at room temperature here for too long.
      It is a decision, you need to ask for advice locally if you can find it.
      I hope this helps, and I hope you can continue safely,
      Gemma 🙂

    Can we add corn flour instead of oat flour

  5. Annabella Jackson on June 11, 2019 at 2:20 am

    I made the cookies exactly according to the recipe, but my cookies taste too salty and wet. It’s almost like raw cookie dough. Where did i go wrong?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2019 at 3:50 pm

      Hi Annabella! Thanks for reaching out! As these are no bake cookies, they will not have the same texture as the baked kind. I am not sure how your cookie turned out too salty. You can scale back on the salt next time. If your cookie dough turned out too wet, you can add a little more oat flour. If you live somewhere humid, this may have affected the moisture in your cookie dough. I hope I answered your questions. Gemma 🙂

      • Annabella Jackson on June 11, 2019 at 11:41 pm

        Thanks Gemma. I live in Mumbai, India, and it’s very humid here so i guess it’s because of the temperature. However, i tried fully dunking the cookie in chocolate and it made the taste of the cookie nice.

    I have made cookies like these many times when my kids were little. They were fast and easy and didn’t heat up the house in the summer with a oven. Unfortunately my granddaughter has an oat allergy. What do you suggest for a no bake cookie without oats.

    • Gemma Stafford on June 3, 2019 at 3:30 am

      Hi Christine,
      I think coconut flour and almond flour combined make a great alternative to oats. As these are not grain they do not need cooking, but of course, attention needs to be paid to allergies. Coconut flour is highly absorbent, it behaves differently to other grain flour, so very little is needed to bring a recipe together. With almond flour, it is used in a 1:3 combination, that is 1/3 coconut flour to 2/3 almond flour. Desiccated coconut is also a useful ingredient ( you can see it here.
      I hope this is of help. You can experiment a bit too to make these recipes your own,
      Gemma 🙂

        Thank you very much for your suggestions. I have never used either flour but I will give it a try. 😊
