• No Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies (Gluten-Free)

    February 12, 2013

    I’ve whipped up these cookies 3 times already since I first made the recipe this past weekend. They’re so good and so easy to make!

    These cookies are chocolaty and fudgy with some sweet and salty action going on. And, the best part, they require no baking. Love that.

    No Bake Chocolate Fudge Cookies

    Ingredients:

    • 12 pitted dates

    Directions:

    Combine ingredients in a food processor or blender. Mix until smooth.

    Roll batter into balls and flatten onto wax paper. Chill in refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.

    Oh gosh, these look awesome!!
    I’m loving that these are dairy free too, since I can’t have eggs and paleo recips usually have a ton of those.
    Plus anything with coconut oil is a winner in my books.

    I just tried cookies made with dates recently and was pleasantly surprised. These ones seem really easy! I may actually have to try them even though I’m not a baker at all.

    These look awesome. Since I gave up refined sugar I have been trying to find ways to squelch my sweet tooth…lets just say I have recently become good friends with dates and very ripe bananas! Thanks for the recipe :)

    These look yummy and easy to make! I’ve seen no bake cookies that look like these served several times before but never seen a vegan recipe. I hope to try these soon and maybe play around with different flavors too!

    I love no bake cookies!My grandma calls them stove top cookies, haha. I don’t know if I’d call these ones chocolate fudge cookies, but maybe “no bake cocoa date cookies”?

    You know, I still haven’t made anything with dates and I feel like I’ve been meaning to for years! They’re so good, I should really give it a try

Love your blog, thanks for all the meal planning advice and of course, always love Murphy!!

    @Tina: As promised: Fudgy Brownie Bites! I used peanut butter but you could use any nut butter to make it paleo friendly!

    Ooh, these cookies look like yum x 1000. I never would have thought of using dates as a base for no bake cookies, but that’s a really great idea. I’ll have to try the recipe out. :)

    I have never seen a easier cookie recipe! Now I know what I should do with those dates I have in my cupboard that I have no idea what to do with. You know what would be awesome…dipping them in nut butter! Just saying…

    Okay, so I need to make these ASAP. I love, love, love the fact that they are no-bake, could be made vegan (by substituting agave nectar for the honey), and that it makes a batch of 4 cookies instead of dozens. As a single girl, I cannot (or at least should not) polish off a whole batch of cookies, unless it involves only eating 4! ;)

    I need to buy myself some dates! (just in time for Valentine’s day, no? Haha, I crack myself up…) But seriously, they seem to be involved in every healthily, delicious chocolate recipe I find these days.

    I messed these up, but they were still delicious. I put in 3tb coconut oil, so the batter was pretty oily. To soak it up ,I threw in some coconut — maybe 1/2 cup. They are great! It made 12 though, even without the coconut, it seemed like more than 4 cookies. 1/2 teaspoon salt seemed a lot to me, so I did bit less, and would go even less next time, maybe just a pinch. Thanks for the great recipe!
