View Full Version : raw "no bake cookie"
10-30-2008, 10:07 AM
I know it sounds ironic. :p I am looking for a raw version of the no bake cookie that has oatmeal and chocolate. Is there anything out there that tastes similar. I saw them at Walmart last month and now they are my downfall. If I go to Walmart and I am hungry I get them. :( I only eat one but them I give them to my family which is just as bad. Any ideas? Thanks! :)

I've never had that cookie. I made the cookie recipe on the video linked in this thread. There is also another recent thread with a similiar recipe. You don't need a dehydrator. It's impossible to mess up with these ingredients. I did mess up, and they are still FABULOUS. I think they would be good with oats. Check it out. Please post whatever you come up with. I want more no-bake cookie recipes! :)

I got a goodie I made last night and never made it too the rolling stages, but only to the mouth as is:
Orange Pecan Cookie - carol giambri
pinch of fresh lemon without skin for liquid
orange peel sliver
Play with quantities as that is how I UNcook.
Absolutely delish to the max.
Mix together in food processor.
Compliments are few from hubby and this one got one.
He loves my foods but slow to express himself.

The Rawvolution book has a recipe for chocolate carob truffles and they really remind me of no-bake cookies. I don't remember the exact recipe but its basically corsely ground nuts, ground coconut, carob & cacao powder & some type of sweetener like agave or honey.
I am planning to add to the recipe: ground oat groats and maybe some finely ground jungle peanuts.

Wow! Thanks everyone! I can't wait to try some of these. MMMMMMMMM YUMMY!
I found this in my saved recipes. Someone posted another recipe waaaayyyy back that used raw oats which Alissa sells or did - I haven't checked lately. I'll search around and see if it turns up.
Chocolate or Carob Haystacks
Makes 20 pieces
¾ cup coconut oil, liquefied
½ cup carob powder or organic cocoa powder
½ cup Rapadura, sucanat, honey or agave nectar
1/8 of a vanilla bean or 1 tsp. Vanilla extract (if using a vanilla bean, cut the bean open and use the black pulp inside. A spoon works well for scraping it out).
3 cups shredded coconut (more or less as needed)
Liquefy the coconut oil by placing a bowl of it in a bowl of hot water or put it in your dehydrator for 10 minutes.
If using Rapadura or sucanat (whole dehydrated cane juice) blend in a dry blender until it becomes powder. Blend all the ingredients except shredded coconut together on high until the batter emulsifies. Mix the batter in with the shredded coconut in a mixing bowl.
Shape into haystacks on a tray lined with wax paper. Let set up in the refrigerator or freezer, they will be soft at temperatures over 60 degrees. These will last 6-12 months in the refrigerator or freezer.

Here is the recipe I was referring to. Still did not find the original poster to give them proper credit.
1/2 cup coconut oil (liquified)
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 cups dates (pitted and chopped)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 to 1/3 cup almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 inch vanilla bean (scraped)
3 cups oats flakes
Place all ingredients in a food processor, blend until well blended but still chunky, drop onto wax paper, or teflex sheet, place in fridge to stiffen up.
