No-Bake Cookies~25 Days of Christmas Cookies #22

Gluten-free no-bake cookies are the perfect cookie for that day that you really don’t feel like baking or you don’t have any gluten-free flour in the house. I love to freeze these cookies and eat them nice and cold.

1/2 c. raw or organic butter
2 c. raw sugar
3 Tbls. cocoa
1/2 c. raw or organic milk
2/3 c. organic peanut butter
3 c. gluten-free oats
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract

*Mix butter, sugar, cocoa and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 1 more minute from first signs of bubbling. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oatmeal and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and cool.

  1. Sounds yummy, though I have no clue what “raw” butter is, or how much a “cube” is.

    Any chance you have a cookie recipe that is a reasonable substitute for oreos? My hubby is dying for his oreos.

  2. Yay…I had lost this recipe for the gluten way and am excited to make it gluten free!!:)

  3. I'm so glad you girls like it! This is one of my favorites because it is seriously so stinkin' easy plus they taste sooo yummy!!! Enjoy!

  4. Alexis, there are two brands of gluten free oreos that I buy. They are both listed in yesterdays cookie recipe, the coated cookie drops. The Kinnickinnick ones are great on their own and the Josef's ones are especially great for baking. Hope that helps. :)

  5. No bake cookies are my FAVORITE! This reminds me that I should make some. YUM!

  6. anyone try these for a dairy free version as well? Can I substitute soy or rice milk and lactose free margarine? My family is twice cursed (gluten and dairy free diet)!

  7. Linda, I am almost positive that would work just fine. The peanut butter and the cocoa are the two flavors that you really taste so I don't think the substitutions would be a problem. May I suggest using rice or coconut milk over soy. This is just a personal opinion :) Also, if you are ever able to try raw dairy products you can see if you are like the many people out there with lactose problems who are able to have raw milk, cheese and butter. Often people who consider themselves to be “lactose intolerant” are able to enjoy raw milk because it contains “lactase.” Lactase is one of the enzymes that get destroyed during pasteurization. It normally would pre-digest the milk while in the stomach, thereby enabling the body to assimilate its nutrients. Pasteurization forces the milk to enter the lower intestines undigested, resulting in cramps and gas. (http://saveyourdairy.com/MilkDigestion.php) Again these are mine and others personal opinion. You should do whats best for your body. I just love when products are introduced to me so I wanted to share these with you. :)

  8. This recipe sounds terrific–and all my GF treats are gone and I need to do a “baking day”. I think since I have tomorrow off–I'll try these and maybe your oatmeal filled ones–it helps to know that I have a “sweet treat” in my lunch box while my co-workers are munching on gluten filled goodies all around me.
