The gluten free cookies are so simple with only 7 easy to find ingredients. They are better than the no bake cookies you remember eating growing up. They are healthier too! Shhh, I won’t tell. These cookies are gluten free, dairy free and made with delicious coconut oil.

My Mom didn’t cook a lot growing up. She was mostly a single Mom, working full-time. There are a handful of things she made though- Biscuits and Gravy, Ribs, Fried Potatoes and Beans, Fruit Dip and these No Bake Cookies.
My Mom loves her sweets. Like for real, eat an entire tray of cookies in one night kind of love. She is a tiny thing too, so I never quite understood where it all went.
I loved these cookies growing up. They take 10 minutes to make and since you don’t have to turn on the oven and you store them in the fridge, they are perfect for summer time.
Switching regular oats for gluten free was a no brainer. The original recipe calls for butter and I love using coconut oil in place whenever I can. I used Coco Calla coconut oil in this recipe. It gives it an amazing flavor. Feel free to even use coconut sugar in this recipe. They are not as sweet as granulated sugar but much healthier.






1 Cup Sugar


1 Cup Chocolate Almond Milk


¼ Cup Cocoa Powder


½ Cup Peanut Butter


3 Cups Gluten Free Oats


1 tsp. Vanilla





In a large saucepan combine all ingredients except vanilla. Melt ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla and spoon onto parchment paper and refrigerate overnight. Store in the fridge. Enjoy
