Vegan No-Bake Cookie Dough Bars

You and I both know that there’s nothing like devouring a spoonful of raw cookie dough. The kids want it all and it’s hard to say no when it’s right there in front of you begging to be tried. Well, fret about salmonella no longer friends, check out this Vegan No-Bake Cookie Dough Bars that tastes just like the real deal — but it’s healthier and you don’t have to worry about raw eggs!

What’s the secret? Nutty goodness. Mix together almonds, walnuts and oats into a powder and then mix the sweet and wet ingredients in for a cookie dough extravaganza. Of course you can munch away before the bars are set in the freezer — just don’t forget to drizzle that hot and gooey chocolate sauce on top for pure bliss.

Walnuts and almonds are an excellent source of protein, calcium, and Vitamin E, even in small amounts like what’s called for in this recipe. And coconut oil, which is used in the chocolate sauce, is known to kill bad bacteria in your stomach (which gives the good gut flora a chance to flourish) to aid in digestion and get your gut health back in control.

    This recipe isn’t raw, as maple syrup is heated as well as vegan chocolate chunks (unless you’re using raw cacao nibs) but I modified it to be raw by using raw agave, not making the icing and using raw cacao. I also added 5 dates so I cut the agave in half. It’s a great no-bake base recipe for raw bars. Came out wonderful.

      Hey there! You’re so right…I think I meant to say it’s no-bake as opposed to calling it raw. Thank you for the feedback. So glad you loved the recipe and I will actually tweak my recipe title accordingly 🙂
