They are super easy and will take you less than 30 minutes to prepare. Also, almost all of the ingredients are pantry staples you probably have already. And my favorite part: you can eat the dough as you go without worrying about salmonella.
These gluten free no bake cookies are mineral-rich, high in protein, full of fiber, packed with antioxidants and superfoods, completely vegan, and most importantly – DELICIOUS!
The power of superfoods
Being invited into the superfoods category is a prestigious honor only granted to certain foods. They must be rich in nutrients and low in calories in order to qualify. It’s not every fruit and vegetable that can attain the level of superfood.
Filling your diet with superfoods gives you the energy you need to be the best you can be. You’ll basically feel like a superhero when you have the nutrients and vitamins that come from superfoods.
This recipe is full of some of my favorite superfoods, including hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, cacao powder, and shredded coconut. Check out my other top superfoods here.
The advantages of no bake cookies
There are so many things I love about no bake cookies. The best part is that you don’t have to wait around for your oven to heat up…and you never have to worry about the cookies getting burned!

Are you trying to raise healthy kids? It’s important to have sweet options available so they’re not tempted to dig into a sleeve of Oreos or pick up a bag of gummy worms on their way home from school. Once they get used to these delicious healthy no bake oatmeal cookies, they’ll be disgusted at the sight of a Twinkie.
A word on ingredients before you get started
As always, the quality of a recipe is only as good as the quality of the ingredients you use. That’s why it’s so essential to use pure organic ingredients for these no bake cookies.
When it comes to choosing between pistachios and shredded coconut as your topping, keep in mind that they have very different textures. Some people love the consistency of coconut, while others think it’s too waxy and using too much of it distracts from the overall experience of the cookie. Experiment with both to figure out which one you like best.
