No Bake Cookies – Gluten Free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar Free

  • Author: Morgan | Just What We Eat
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 15
  • Yield: 25 1x


  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dairy free milk of choice (I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk”)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter (I use “Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks” or you can use coconut oil*)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free oats


  1. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium sized saucepan, add cocoa powder, dairy free milk, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and vegan butter. Heat over medium heat, stirring continuously until everything is combined. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Stir in oats and mix until all of the oats are coated.
  5. Using a medium sized cookie scoop or spoon, drop the mixture onto the parchment paper and gently press down on each cookie to flatten them out a bit.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool for about 20-30 minutes. I like to place them in the refrigerator to speed up this process.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.*


  • You can use coconut oil instead of vegan butter if desired. The cookies do not hold together as long with coconut oil so I suggest using vegan butter if you plan to have the cookies sitting out for a while.
  • These also freeze very well!
