Sugar Note: This recipe is a riff on traditional chocolate no bake cookies, which are notoriously sweet! If you find the original too sweet, reduce the sugar by 25% (1½ cups) or even a little more (1¼ cups), if desired.

  1. Stunning! I’ve using coconut oil quite a bit lately so I’m pleased to see you’ve used that. Can’t wait to try this recipe, I’ve enjoyed having a catchup.

  2. I’ve got quite a list of intolerances so I made these with So Delicious Chocolate Coconut milk, almond butter, and almond extract (in place of vanilla). They turned out great!

    I’m not used to alot of white sugar now so I might try again with coconut or maple sugar as I do like how sweet they are! I may also use a cup or half a cup of rolled oats as my quick oats were really broken down after mixing.

  3. I subbed shortening for coconut oil, old fashioned oats for quick, sunbutter/pumpkin butter blend for peanut butter. Then I topped with citron flake salt.

    • Hi Tara, this recipe is a riff on traditional no bakes – a recipe that is very sweet! Many like them this way. You can reduce the sugar by up to half though, without problems, if preferred. I’ve made them that way myself.
