Mexican Chocolate No Bake Cookies

Easy #nobake chocolate cookies - VERY addictive - We couldn't stop eating them! https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/12/19/mexican-chocolate-bake-cookies/ @choccoveredkt

If you’re looking for a tried-and-true holiday cookie recipe that gets rave reviews and  yields a batch large enough to take to a party…

Easy #nobake chocolate cookies - VERY addictive - We couldn't stop eating them! https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/12/19/mexican-chocolate-bake-cookies/ @choccoveredkt

Do not make these.

The raw cookie batter is so addictive that, if you’re anything like me, you’ll find it completely impossible to stop eating the cookie dough by the spoonful. So by the time you actually get around to forming cookies, very little batter will be left. The yield of this recipe is for 16-18 cookies… but I think my first batch made closer to 5.

And I’d like to say I had a bunch of friends to blame for all the missing dough.

No Bake Chocolate Cookies

But no.

It was just me.

Mexican Chocolate No Bake Cookies

  • 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder (10g)
  • 2/3 cup quick oats (60g)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (60g) – or just pulse rolled oats in a food processor until they become powder, and measure after processing
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda – yes, really
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • scant 1/4 tsp cayenne, or more for spicier cookies
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar of choice or xylitol (50g)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or coconut oil (40g)
  • 2 tbsp water (30g)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, optional

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. In a small cup, combine all wet ingredients. Pour wet into dry, and stir together. Scoop out with a cookie scoop, or refrigerate a few minutes until firm enough to scoop out (if using coconut oil, don’t refrigerate too long or the dough will become hard). Place cookie dough balls on wax paper and chill until firm. If you want to bake these cookies, do so at 325 F for 10 minutes. Then let cool 5 minutes before eating. Makes about 16-18 cookies.

    I just made my third batch in three weeks!
    I love the kick with the Cayanne pepper, I love baking with Trader Joe’s coconut oil, I love that they make a great between meal snack or dessert for that little something sweet!

    These are so tasty! I had a bit of trouble keeping the no-bake version together. So this batch is being used as a super yummy topping for plain greek yogurt. Next time should I add more water or oil to get the right consistency? Thanks for all the great recipes. I love giving my kiddies treats that are healthier than I grew up with…and just as tasty!

    These are so good! And you’re right about the batter being addictive! I added allspice and clove for a spice twist and instead of sugar used stevia extract. As you say, D to the Licious!

    Sorry but I followed the recipe EXACTLY and it was a mess. Did you test this recipe, evidently NOT!! It didn’t form a cookie at all,

    Surprisingly amazing! I bought the cookbook yesterday on amazon.com. i can’t wait till i get it to try all the recipes! trying to eat better, and i find your recipes easy for me to controll how much i eat, they are amazing and i could eat them all in one setting, but you feel so satisfied after a little bit that you don’t feel the need to eat the whole thing!

    I’ve made this several times now and it is a definite favorite. ? My entire family really likes it. I was super hesitant to use the cayenne because it’s, you know, cayenne in cookies, but I did it today and it turned out delicious! The pepper really compliments the chocolate. Thank you Katie for putting so much time and thought into coming up with these amazing recipes!!

    Hi there! I’ve made these cookies SEVERAL stones and they are a for sure favorite around here!!! I’m currently trying a high fat low carb diet that doesn’t allow any grains. I was curious if you could think of a substitute I could use for the oats. I could try almond flour or coconut flour maybe? Please let me know what you think. These would be perfect for me minus the pats. Do you have any othe recipes that are high on fat and low on carbs?
