These 5 minute no-bake chewy cookies are so yummy and delicious, you’ll be making them every week! If you’re not obsessed with no-bake desserts yet, then you are in for a treat. These cookies are chewy and gooey on the inside, with a little chocolate on top. And believe it or not, but these cookies are actually healthy for you – made with only 4 main ingredients!
These chewy cookies seriously are one of the best no-bake raw desserts I’ve ever made! And it makes it so much better knowing that they’re healthy too! They’re around 170 calories per cookie, and made with healthy ingredients like tahini, dates + almond flour.
This is a simple recipe with simple ingredients with such an amazing result in 5 minutes! I chose to add a tiny amount of dark chocolate on top, but because these cookies come out so chewy and soft, you can add whatever toppings you like and just push them on top on the cookies to stay in place. Some topping options could be desiccated coconut, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts… ect.
These chewy cookies taste like salted caramel because of the gooey dates, with a slight nutty taste from to the almond flour. Basically they’re a really great low calorie snack for when you need a little sweetness in your life! I also tested these yummy cookies on my non-vegan boyfriend who tried them and said they tasted kind of like a snickers bar, yay!
What do I need to make these yummy cookies?
- A food processor. It doesn’t have to be an expensive food processor, they all do the same job!
- Reusable baking paper. This is optional but highly recommended because it’s super handy when making recipes like this! It’s also great for oil-free cooking too.
- Sugar free vanilla drops. Again, optional but great if you’re watching your sugar intake! These sugar free vanilla drops taste amazing and you can add them to everything – even your morning oats to give them a sweeter taste!
Tahini – rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory + packed with minerals to strengthen your immune system.
Dates – a natural healthy sweetener, high in fibre + full of nutrients.
Almond flour – contains prebiotic fibre, naturally gluten-free + a low carb flour alternative.
