They come together in just a few minutes and taste amazing. I too am looking for a replacement for the dates, as I cannot eat them or prunes. Although I noticed fresh mejooled dates make the best consistency so you get what you pay for regarding them! Sabrina is a professionally trained Private Chef of over 10 years with ServSafe Manager certification in food safety. I saw this and haven’t made anything from your site since I made my still much beloved peanutbutter shake. I don’t think that will work for the chocolate glaze. But if a person does, they could sub almond flour instead. We both have a sweet tooth so I also smother then in vegan caramel sauce then layer of chocolate. I am a trained Private Chef of almost 10 years. I just made these and they are delicious. Thanks so much for the lovely review! I made these today after I saw the Instagram post and I am so pleased I did! Any suggestions for thinning it out more? We are so glad you enjoyed them! Yay! these cookies are the best never thought trying something different for a snack but they are so good gonna be making them again. Perfect last-minute no-bake cookies when needing something sweet for my son who’s allergic to gluten, milk, other nuts and seeds! I couldn’t be more wrong. Perfect sweetness, & I love that they are made with healthy, whole food ingredients. I didn’t have enough dates so added maple syrup in addition to the 6 dates I had — delicious! Thank you for the recipe! 3 ingredients go a LONG (LONG) way. So easy. Thanks so much! No one believed they had no sugar. We made them for a potluck student dinner and they were gone in no time! He called them *canoe cookies* because he scooped them onto the hull of his canoe to harden. Your email address will not be published. Seemed to work, texture-wise. I keep them in ball form. Hmm, if you do that just scale back on the oats to compensate. Idk, maybe that’s what vegan baking is like? And this quick bake free recipe did not disappoint! I need to make these cookies. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugars, butter, and milk. https://minimalistbaker.com/no-bake-pb-j-energy-bites/. Excellent cookie recipe! Thought u might like to try it. They taste like peanut butter cookie dough. They didn’t last long enough to not have taken it asap. My ten year old daughter just made these cookies. Insanely delicious, tender, perfectly sweet peanut butter cookies made with just 3 ingredients! These were so easy and delicious! The result is a cookie dough that’s perfectly tender, salty, and sweet! I love your site. THANK YOU! Better luck with the next one! Use the hashtag #MinimalistBaker on Instagram :D. Everything came together in less than 10 minutes, delicious! It’s super helpful for us and other readers. Sorry I forgot to leave a rating with my comment. Many thanks in advance. I think so. While browsing your website, I came across a post for 10 BEST Tofu Recipes. And the perfect afternoon treat. So glad you and your little one enjoyed them, Sandra! Am going to try 1/4 cup maple syrup instead of dates next time like some readers suggested too. The absolute best!!! My neice, Ashley Yoder (apparently she knows you), introduced me to your website and also gifted me with your cookbook! YUM! I honestly just ate it and didn’t form any cookies. I’m wondering, have you tried this with any other grain? And these were a perfect activity and snack for me and my toddler. Thank you because of the mold warming on peanuts I was wondering log almond butter would work. I would love to make these. It’s hard to describe how much I love these. Yummy!!!! I literally just made these after I saw this post because I had all the ingredients. Added 10 extra dates, still crumbly so I added a bit of water which immediately turned into a bit of a sticky ball. I followed the recipe for a batch of 12 cookies perfectly and only ended up with six cookies, any idea why? Yay! The second batch was perfect with a new jar of PB. Could I use quick oats instead of rolled oats for this recipe? Let us know how it goes! They are so easy to make. We made them with freshly ground peanut butter the first time and while very good they were crumbly. You might try Bob’s Red Mill – they have a couple of gluten free oat products. Thank you so much for this recipe. My Dad used to make these on float trips down the Current river. Can’t wait to make some coconut-free for my boy and see what he thinks. Thanks for the easy recipe Dana! Thanks Dana! Really looking forward to making this! I have to have them on hand at all times after discovering this recipe. Use ctrl+f or ⌘+f on your computer or the "find on page" function on your phone browser to search existing comments! I’ve even made these with raisins instead of dates when that was all I had and they were still excellent. Thanks Dana! Now Dana, you’re your own worst competition with the new ones you publish online :-) It seems we were borne by the same mother as our tastes are so similar, from hot meals to Asian bowls to deserts :) This will sound weird (blame it on the -many- cookies I just sampled) but if they ever clone you, I’m getting one of you home :P, For this recipe, I was inspired for a shortcut… the chocolate sauce seemed like too much work (it’s 45 Celsius in Montreal today), so I added some chocolate chips to the mix, at the end, and pulsed. These are amazing! My daughter is a vegan but also on the Fodmap regime because she has IBS. Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? Like others, I added a few oz of water to the dough because it was struggling to come together. You could even eat this for breakfast! Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and salt until combined, then stir in oats. Not that easy to go to the store right now. It is nice because it is a two ingredient recipe so simply made, but the flavors are highly complementing. Thanks so much for sharing! This post may contain affiliate links. Other readers seem to have really enjoyed it. So amazing, I wish I had made a double batch! Very easy. It’s not the recipe, it’s just my preference. basically, it’s too dry to form into balls and then press down and use the fork on them. I also wish I used a round cookie cutter to shape my balls, or a maybe a scoop? These cookies are so easy to make and taste delicious!!!! xo. She therefore cannot eat dates. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. Amazing. Sadly, my husband is very allergic to coconut. My three favourite ingredients for a delicious dessert are: chocolate, oats, and peanut butter. Hi Joan, that might work! The chocolate shell can get soft at room temperature, so it’s best to store them in the refrigerator. I don’t know if these will last the weekend! AMAZING! 1. Problem solved! I love the chocolate glaze recipe but my kids don’t like the coconut flavor from the oil in anything! Just made this! I totally underestimated how delicious these would be. Still great but it changes the texture and then becomes less like a cookie and more like a Reese’s peanut butter cup kind of dense and chewy. Everybody loved them and they were gone so fast…. If your cookies dry out, it may be because the sugar, butter and milk combination boiled for too long, this can happen. The result is a perfect balance of sweet and salty, and the balls look so cute rolled in coconut and chia that I’m going to gift some to a friend who is stressing over her PhD study at the moment. Thank you. Another reader had success when using a blender in an above comment, but we haven’t tried it! My 5 yo son loves these and loves helping me make them. hoollllyyyy moly these are SO good! Thank you Dana. But if they are already sticky and moist, the texture may be off. I just added a bit of water until it got back to a dough consistency. Make sure to gather your ingredients and measure everything out before you get started with these cookies, it will make the whole process much smoother. These look amazing! Sounds like others have tried almond with success. I used melted loving earth chocolate for the topping, ultra yummy! I tried these and just didn’t get the same feeling. My new favorite (no-bake) cookies are here! If you like Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups these will satisfy. Eating the dough was like giving peanut butter to a dog. We’re vegan and one of us is gluten free. Perfect for summer! These were a hit with my mom vegan family and friends, I made them without dipping them in chocolate (though that sounds like an amazing combo) and they turned out perfect!!❤️.
