With Spring here and Summer just around the corner, I’m really feeling the no bake vibes! I love keeping these No Bake Vegan Cookie Dough Bars on hand in the fridge or freezer for a sweet treat when I’m craving that cookie dough flavour. This recipe is super easy to put together and very forgiving in terms of toppings and what size pan you use. I like using a loaf pan (8×4 or 9×5) and then cutting the bars vertically. Sometimes I cut them further into little squares for a quick sweet bite during the day.
The ingredients are simple! You’ll need:
- coconut oil
- maple syrup (if vegan) or honey
- nut butter (I used almond)
- milk (any kind)
- vanilla extract
- almond flour
- coconut flour
- chocolate chips (a little or a LOT!)
Note: If you don’t have coconut flour, you can use more almond flour until the dough isn’t sticky. Coconut flour isn’t a 1:1 ratio so you’ll need more almond flour to compensate for omitting coconut flour.
Don’t forget the toppings! I used some unsweetened shredded coconut, sea salt and extra chocolate chips because I cannot get enough!! The salt adds a nice flavour and balances the sweetness of the bars. Other toppings could be pecans, toasted almonds or even sprinkles.
