No-Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re enjoying the week. Some of you have asked for more life updates in my blog posts, and I think that’s a fun idea to bring back more often! Without further ado, a little update and then the recipe…

Our week has been filled with a grab bag of things, as it usually is! On the business side, the Oh She Glows app work has still been filling our days and keeping us busy. I added 7 new recipes to the app over the past 2 weeks, so I’ve been a busy bee working around the clock! Each time I add a new app recipe I have to re-test the recipe (I also have one of my incredible recipe testers test it as well), re-write the recipe (especially if it’s a recipe published before 2013—let’s just say my recipe writing has changed over the years!), edit the recipe, shoot the photo, and then upload the recipe to the app testing site. From there, I position the recipe title, add metric conversions (all recent and future recipes will have metric conversions on the blog and in the app—major yay!), give the recipe a final edit, and make sure everything looks good before I make it live. (My OCD self usually checks it over a gazillion times.) I’m getting the hang of the process now and I really enjoy it. The great news is even if you don’t have the app you’ll still benefit, because as I’m revamping recipes, I’m adding the updated versions to the original blog posts. This means easier-to-follow recipes, and in many cases, even better-tasting recipes. Check out this video Eric put together below for a sneak peek of 6 recipes that were recently added to the app. I’m having so much fun with the photography.

On the home front, we’ve had quite a bit of excitement this week! You may have read in a recent In the Glow newsletter that this year we’re starting up the home renovation process once again (despite my pregnant self not wanting any part of it!), and right now we’re in the design phase. This week, we met with our designer to go over her drawings of the spaces. The design phase is my favourite phase (aside from when the renos are 100% complete, that is) because it’s all rosy and dreamy and filled with hopes of what could be. There’s no mess, no noise, no going over budget, and no dust (yet). So I love this stage, and Eric and I are pretty quick at making decisions together. We’re planning to finish the unfinished basement and a couple other projects before our second little one arrives in September. I must have fallen on my head to agree to this! Eric loves doing renos so I kind of gave in. I have to admit, going through the kitchen reno while 7–9 months pregnant in 2014 was pretty hellish (to put it lightly…hahah), but I’m hoping this process goes more smoothly since it’s not my kitchen that I’m giving up. NOBODY WANTS TO GIVE UP THEIR FOOD SANCTUARY…am I right? This is probably wishful thinking though. I figure that it’ll be easier doing the renos before the baby arrives because we all know when a newborn is in the house not much is getting done aside from feeding, changing scary diapers, and praying for more sleep. Plus, it would be great to have a finished basement where Adriana can have a real playroom! I’ll keep you guys posted on the journey and hopefully post some progress pictures in months to come.

Today’s recipe features one of the new recipes I uploaded to the app—my current favourite way to satisfy my chocolate fix! I didn’t want anything to do with chocolate during the first trimester, but lately I really crave it from time to time. Eric is so enthusiastic about these cookies I probably shouldn’t write the choice words he yelled out when he tasted them! (If you have our app, this recipe should automatically download when you open it next. Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours to display, but since I uploaded it yesterday afternoon it shouldn’t be long!)

No-Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Vegan, gluten-free, no bake/raw, nut-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free

These no-bake fudge cookies are my quick and easy solution when a chocolate craving strikes! I start with a homemade coconut oil chocolate base (made even creamier with sunflower seed butter!), and add chia seeds for healthy Omega-3 fats, shredded coconut for a hint of macaroon flavor and texture, and of course rolled oats for the classic no-bake cookie ingredient. The cookies will soften a great deal at room temperature, so I recommend enjoying them straight from the fridge.

Yield
8 cookies
Freeze time
15 minutes
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

For the wet ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) sunflower seed butter*
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) pure maple syrup, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For the dry ingredients:
  • 7 tablespoons (50 g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 6 tablespoons (35 g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons (25 g) chia seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste

Directions:

  1. Line a large plate with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium pot, melt the coconut oil over low heat. Whisk in the sunflower seed butter, cocoa powder, and maple syrup until smooth. Remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the vanilla.
  3. Add the oats, coconut, chia seeds, and salt into the pot and stir well until combined. The mixture will be thick, dense, oily, and gel-like (from the chia seeds), but this is normal. Swear.
  4. Using a retractable ice cream scoop (approximately 2 tablespoons/30 mL) or simply a spoon, scoop the dough and place the mound onto the plate, leaving a bit of space between each cookie.
  5. Place the cookies in the freezer to set for about 10 to 15 minutes, until firm, or simply chill in the fridge if you have the patience.
  6. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week, or freeze them for up to 4 to 6 weeks. These cookies have the best texture/flavour straight from the fridge (rather than the freezer) so I prefer to store them in the fridge.

Tips:

  • * Instead of sunflower seed butter, feel free to use natural peanut butter or almond butter. I also recommend stirring the nut or seed butter very well before measuring (if it has oil on the top) to avoid oily cookies.

I LOVE having new no-bake/cold (and nut-free!) desserts now that the weather is getting warmer.

Also, I couldn’t be happier about the metric/gram conversions! I actually used the app to make your blueberry spelt muffins this past weekend, and I was thrilled to be able to bake from a scale. They turned out even more perfect than normal :-) xoxo

Right after I gave birth, my best friend brought me cookies very similar to these but probably with lots of bad ingredients. Unfortunately, I ate all 2 dozen on the couch before my husband even got home. Guess I had a bad craving! I love your ingredients in here that are so much better than traditional versions.

I’m enjoying all of your recipes so much, thank you!
I was never one for working from a cookbook before, but you’ve got me inspired, and I’ve gifted your book several times over, all to very grateful recipients.
I used to dance around the edges of a health food store, eager but mostly unsure about how to mix what with what… This weekend I’m headed to an enormous VegFest (a celebration of all things vegan, natural, joyful and healthy!) And Oh She Glows was my introduction.
So, thank you. Your enthusiasm and work is appreciated – big time!

These cookies look incredible! They look like a much healthier version of traditional no-bake chocolate oat cookies. And I love that they use sunflower butter instead of peanut butter, as my toddler is allergic to PB. I’d be curious to try them with cashew butter or almond butter instead, since that’s what I have on hand right now. Sadly, I don’t have any oats at home…or any energy. I’m in my first trimester with baby #2 and finally am craving chocolate again. Before all I wanted was fruit. I’m guessing you can relate!

This is kismet! My daughter was just complaining to me about WHY she can not have candy in her lunch box like her friends at school. It is such a struggle feeding kids nutritious foods when they are surrounded by junk all – the – time. So I was thinking about making something like this to send with her… and then the perfect recipe arrived in my inbox. Thank you, Angela:) I know she will love these, I may add a little brown rice cereal to make them crispy? <3

Hi Liza, I hope your daughter enjoys the treat! I’d love to hear how you end up liking the addition of brown rice cereal, if you decide to experiment. It sounds like an interesting (and yummy) twist!

29 Liza Curtis May 17, 2016

Hi Angela, Here is the update: I added the rice cereal in the same amount as the coconut, and omitted the coconut (because my kids don’t like it) and they were DELISH. Crispy and crunchy and gone before I knew it! Like a chocolate rice crispy treat oatmeal cookie;) <3 Liza

As someone who battles a MAJOR sweet tooth, i admit i was skeptical when i saw this recipe. I was raised with the understanding that sweet treats needed butter and sugar to be good, however i decided that since i have been transitioning over to a much cleaner and healthier diet that i would give these a shot. HOLY!!!!!!!! I cannot even begin to tell you what a shock these cookies were, not only was i able to whip them up in the no time at all, but the finished product was insanely delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it couldn’t have come at a better time!!

I am unable to do chia or hemp seeds. Would flax seed or meal be an ok substitute? Any other ideas? Thank you!

Reply

52 Angela Liddon May 3, 2016

Hi Jen, I haven’t tested these without the chia seeds/with a substitution yet, so I’m not sure! I do think the chia seeds help absorb some of the liquid in these cookies, so I’d worry if they were left out they might be too oily. But I know a couple readers tried the cookies with ground flaxseed instead, and said they turned out well. If you give a substitution a try, I’d love it if you’d report back on how it goes!

Hello Angela, these look simply delicious and I will try them today. I came across your blog a couple of years ago while looking for a green smoothie recipe. It was the beginning of juicing for us. I was impressed with your recipe’s and made quite a few that my husband and I enjoyed immensely even though we are non vegan. Thank you for sharing your ED story, It brought me back to the time I was a chef, at a private residential Eating Disorder Center in Malibu. I cooked there for 9 years and worked closely with the 6 clients who were in recovery. and taught cooking class and meditation. I witnessed great success and the opposite. I am happy you are living life to the fullest with your wee family. I am a new food/life blogger and learning the ropes, and you inspire me to keep going.

Hi Kim, that’s a tough one! For the shredded coconut, I would guess that you could use more oats (however the texture and flavour wouldn’t quite be the same). But I can’t think of an alternative for the coconut oil, since it’s responsible for firming up the cookies when chilling. Sorry I can’t be of more help! If you experiment at all, I would love to hear what you come up with.

I have been making raw brownies that are similar but definitely not the same. I will try this recipe for sure. I was wondering whether you have ever used Lakanto instead of maple syrup. It is derived from the monk fruit and has 0 calories. I am diabetic and use it whenever
a bit of sweetness is required. I grind it to a powder which increases the yield.

I just made these last week for a work party and they were a big hit! I had made them especially for a vegan co-worker but even the non-vegans really loved them. They are especially great right out of the fridge/freezer, but I will say that they did get a little messier as they were left out during the party. SUPER easy to make so I will probably make again and leave in the freezer to snack on myself when a chocolate craving hits =)

I have made these 4 times now and quick oats work better than rolled oats. Also there is no need to heat everything up and wait for it to cool if your coconut oil is at room temperature. Saves time and dishes and the end result is not oily.

Great, easy recipe! Perfect for a quick chocolate fix. I had almost everything on hand but had to make a few adjustments in order to avoid a trip to the store. I used 1tbs chia seeds (didn’t have enough), cacao powder (instead of cocoa), shaved coconut (instead of shredded, added a bit more chunk/crunch) and added a dash of cinnamon (can’t resist chocolate+cinnamon). Very versatile and delicious–thanks Angela!

I made these last night! I used peanut butter (instead of sunflower seed butter), honey (instead of maple syrup) and made them in the shape of little balls instead of cookies.

Guess how it turned out? Awesome!!

It’s the first time I make a raw dessert like this, so I was a bit scared I’d end up with some inedible substance. But it was actually super easy & fast. The only hard part was not eating all of them right away!

I brought them to the office today (since we have a tradition that every Friday a different colleague brings homemade sweets) and everyone loved them!! And asked me for the recipe – so I sent some traffic your way :) Thanks for this lovely recipe!

I tried making these, but mine didn’t come out looking like yours. The mixture was not thick, instead it was thin, and so the cookies came out thin as well. I followed the recipe… I am not sure what went wrong?…

My daughter made the sweet potato black bean enchiladas from the Oh She Glows Cookbook. So good. I purchased the cookbook and am working my way through it and sharing recipes at work. I found the link from your blog for the No Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies, hit the spot. Next time I will double them!

Thank you for this recipe. I live in Thailand and don’t have an oven, so I have made these twice, when my husband and I have had Chocolate Cravings and they hit the spot. They are delicious!!!

I woke up veeery early this morning, and since I couldn’t fall back asleep, I decided to whip these up before I headed of my friend’s house for a little R&R on our days off. They were so good! Between the three of us, we finished these almost as quickly as I threw them together haha. Great recipe!

Just made these for second time in two days…first batch demolished with orders for more! Second time i reduced the coconut oil a touch and used fewer chia seeds, but added slivered almonds. Delish! Also recommend using mini muffin tins to reduce mess factor.

Haha, I’m glad they’re a hit, Kate! Great idea about the mini muffin tins, too :)

I have to say when I first looked at the recipe, I was afraid that it’s too complicated. But I had the guts to try it the last weekend, and my husband and kids couldn’t stop eating. Thanks for this amazing recipe, Sarah.

These look delicious! Is there anything you’d suggest as a substitute for the oats – not only for this but also other recipes? I’m allergic to oats, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I whipped these up a couple of days ago when my boyfriend was craving a sweet treat. So quick and simple to throw together and not to mention delicious! I can see why Eric yelled out choice words haha! The batch of 6 cookies didn’t last long in our house…totally devoured by the end of the night :)

I just made these cookies and they are delicious! I was reading online about coconut oil and found a lot of info that suggests that coconut oil is not a healthy choice. I have trying to bring down my cholesterol and was concerned about the 90% saturated fat found in coconut oil. It tastes amazing but I am worried I should be using it. Thx! Jennifer

Oh my god these are delicious! I used peanut butter, as it was what I had on hand, and I toasted the oats in the oven for 10 minutes beforehand. I will definitely be making these again.

I’ve been making these often the last few weeks, but have yet to allow them to make it to the fridge….they’re gone so fast! I had to offer company each a half of one the other day as that’s all I had left.

HI! these look delicious (as do all of your recipes) but I live in Jerusalem and don’t think I could find sunflower seed butter over here. Can I sub it with techina? (tahini) thank you!

I made these killer cookies for my book club last night and they were a huge hit! Many members of our club are vegan and gluten-free. I used crunchy almond butter instead of peanut butter but, otherwise, followed the recipe, doubling it. It was a hot summer evening and I’d chilled these all day so they, along with the flowing wine, topped off the evening. Great recipe. I highly recommend. Next time I’m going to toss in a few chopped pecans. Yum!

Sounds like you had a lovely evening, Kath! I’m glad the cookies were a hit, and I’d love to hear how you like them with the addition of pecans. :)

I am not a raw coconut lover. If I omit this ingredient from the recipe, will the outcome be adversely affected? Or, is there another ingredient I could use?
Keep up the great work. Your recipes and books are an inspiration!
