Quick No-bake Grain-free Cookie Dough

It always blows my mind when people say they don’t like chocolate. It’s ok, we can still be friends.

More for me, right?

I live for chocolate. Livi is quickly learning the ways, too. My nana bought me a cupcake magnet years ago and when you press the cupcake it says, “I loooooooooove chocolate.” Guess what 18-month old loves to press the magnet and say, “I loooooove chocolate!” along with it? Pretty dang cute.

I especially love a little something sweet in the afternoon with my coffee. Nana and I call it our “jolt” time, and it always involves coffee, usually a bite of something sweet or some popcorn. So, naturally around 2pm the other day while Liv was napping, I started to scrounge for a sweet treat.

No-Bake Grain-Free Cookie Dough

I found this chocolate bar from Whole Foods, which wasn’t really my favorite:

and gave it second life in a no-bake cookie dough.

  1. I was just wondering what you suggest as a substitute to the almond meal. Seeing as I am allergic to almonds I would like to find a good substitute. Thanks.

  7. I made these yesterday, and I couldn’t get them to set up….so I baked them for 10 min at 350 and they were perfect! My little one who is autistic and super picky is on a grain free diet….its been super challenging, but she loved these cookies! I think they are going to be a staple!

  8. Yum! Increased the almond meal and loved these!

  9. Used 1/2 this recipe to make a grain-free breakfast cookie dough cereal (minus the chocolate, add cinnamon)… delish! So filling and felt like a treat πŸ™‚
