No Bake Almond Cookies

No Bake Almond Cookies

Hello everyone!! Quick update from my end…the daughter’s done with her high school exams, time for college admissions, the son is in a new “big” class now and yours truly is as always, complaining about the weather and trying to figure out what to eat!!

As the scorching sun beats down on us, I’m less and less inclined to turn on that oven.  So this morning, excitedly armed with a jar of my homemade Cinnamon Maple Almond Butter, I made these No- Bake Almond Cookies.

No Bake Almond Cookies

Now these cookies are exceptionally easy to make.  Think fun kitchen project with the kids during the summer hols.  Think easy healthy snack.  Think delicious. Think high fiber and healthy fats. Think wholesome, nutritious dessert!

No Bake Almond Cookies

Filled to the gills with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, almonds and rolled oats.  These babies are crunchy, nutty, lightly sweetened and  so  gooey….thanks to that almond butter.

Notes:

  • You can use rolled oats to make these cookies gluten -free.
  • Coconut / palm sugar may be used instead of honey/maple syrup
  • I haven’t used too much chocolate. But feel free to add more if you like. Do watch out for adding the chocolate to the warm mixture, it will melt ( this is my experience talking! ).
  • Our North Indian summer is not kind to no-bake treats. So store them in an air tight container in the fridge or in the freezer.  You can keep the frozen ones out for a couple minutes before eating them.

“No bake” is an instant attention driver as I love the no bake dishes which can be made on kitchen stove. This was a simple and great recipe. Will try this at home. Keep sharing!

Hey Natasha,

I got my eyes on your blog while going through some random pictures in instagram. Very beautiful pictures and clearly described recipes.
I had already added a lot of recipes to my list of must try 😊..
I just had one query about these cookies, Can I use normal sunflower oil used for cooking at home instead of coconut oil? Because I don’t like the smell of coconut oil in my food.
