Vegan Chocolate No Bake Cookies

Less Than 10 Ingredients

I make these cookies with only eight ingredients, nine if I decide to throw in chocolate chips. All ingredients are common kitchen ingredients, too, so you may already have everything on hand as you read this!

I first melt coconut oil in a saucepan. Then, I add maple syrup, almond milk, creamy peanut butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. I whisk this mixture for a few minutes until it is super smooth and slightly thickened. Then off the heat, I add oats and dark chocolate chips, stir it well, and scoop portions onto a sheet pan. Lastly, I top each cookie with a heavy sprinkling of flaky sea salt and freeze them! These vegan no-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies are EASY and take me less than fifteen minutes to make.

Servings 6 cookies


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, 100% pure
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, plain, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter, plain and unsalted (ZERO added ingredients/100% peanuts)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 100% pure
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • *Optional: 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt


  • Add the coconut to a medium-sized saucepot and melt it over medium/medium-low heat. (I set my burner to 4 out of 10.)
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, EXCEPT for the chocolate chips and sea salt, to a container. Don't worry about stirring them right now.
  • Once the coconut oil is completely melted, add the ingredients from the container to the pot, and whisk for 3 to 4 minutes to make the mixture completely smooth and slightly thicker.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, add the rolled oats, and stir until well combined. If you'd like to add chocolate chips, wait about 5 minutes for the mixture to cool down, then fold them in.
  • Line a large sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper. Then, using a standard-sized ice cream scoop or a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop out portions of the cookie mixture and place them on the sheet pan.
  • Sprinkle each cookie with your desired amount of sea salt.
  • Freeze the cookies for at least an hour, then store them in an air-tight container in the freezer.
