How to make no-bake chocolate chip cookies?
You can make these delicious no-bake chocolate chip cookies with only 4 ingredients and no fancy kitchen tools. All you need is 4 simple pantry staples:
- Peanut butter – use pure peanut butter made of 100% peanuts, without added sugar or added oil.
- Oat flour – this is basically oatmeal that I pulsed into a fine flour in my blender. You can replace oat flour with almond flour for a paleo, grain-free cookie recipe.
- Maple syrup – or any unrefined liquid sweetener like agave syrup or brown rice syrup.
- Dark chocolate chips – most chocolate chips with more than 60% cocoa are vegan. But always check the ingredient list if you aren’t sure. Otherwise, you can finely chop the 70% dark chocolate tab into pieces.

No-bake Chocolate Chip Cookies
- In a large mixing bowl, combine fresh runny peanut butter along with maple syrup.
- Stir in oat flour, coconut flour, and vanilla. Stir with a spoon at first, then use your hands to knead the dough, and form a cookie dough batter that sticks together. It should take about 1 minute, enough time for the coconut flour fibers to absorb the liquid.
- Scoop 12 balls from the dough. Place each ball on a plate covered with parchment paper and flatten each ball into a cookie shape.
- Refrigerate 30 minutes to set or freeze 10 minutes to set faster.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks or freeze in silicone ziplock bags.
