Cinnamon Vegan No Bake Cookies Recipe

Amy says, “My Mom made no bake cookies all the time when I was growing up; and I for my kids. Since becoming vegan as an adult, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to enjoy them anymore. But after tinkering with my favorite So Delicious products, I can make them & lick the spoon all I want! Also, I have yet to find a heated vegan no bake cookies like mine, that uses cinnamon instead of cocoa!”

  1. My kids really liked these, but I feel they are way too sweet. I liked all of the cinnamon and added a half cup of sliced almonds. Next time I will use half the sugar if possible.

    • I agree Melissa! I tested this recipe, which was submitted to us, and actually reduced the sugar. I will post my notes to the recipe as soon as I get the chance! Glad you enjoyed though 🙂

  2. Excellent recipe! My husband loves it! These little cookies are sooo addicting! 4 teaspoons of cinnamon is WAAAAAY too much though. I use only 1 teaspoon and they are PLENTY cinnamon-y. I also add a couple of heaping tablespoons of coco powder to make them chocolatey! So Delicious!

    To add a different flair, I’ve made these with no cinnamon, but added coconut flakes and coco powder. Yum!
