I should consider renaming this blog to the ‘no bake blogger’. Or the ‘no bake boy’.Or something with the word lazy….because no bake = easy = my kind of recipe.

I’m keeping with my promise to make paleo friendly recipes for Niki- although I may or may not have been eating them myself. I like to refer to it as quality assurance. I mean, it’s rude to serve other people food which isn’t delicious. Right? RIGHT?

Back to the recipe- I kind of got slightly excited with the almonds. Almond butter and almond flour are the same thing except ground to different levels of perfection. If I didn’t add a few other ingredients, I may as well have just bought a package of almonds and called them breakfast. However, I am not THAT lazy.


The reason for the multiple variations of them is one thing- Texture. Almond butter, almond flour and whole almonds are all the same thing- but the textures of each of them are different. One of Niki’s favourite cookies are these Persian Almond cookies which she used to eat for breakfast. Those cookies were definitely not Paleo (Think almonds, glucose syrup, butter and almond meal) but now she has a substitute for the two weeks. Or three weeks. Any bets it will be close to a year the way she’s going.

These no bake cookies don’t have to be limited to breakfast but cookies for breakfast sounds sexy. Not only are they suitable for Paleo folks, but if you follow a Vegan, Grain Free or Gluten Free diet- you can go to town on these two.

  • In a small mixing bowl, add the almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon and sea salt. Add the almond butter and mix well until a crumbly batter is formed.
  • Slowly add in almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a firm dough is formed. Add in the shredded coconut, half the whole almonds and any other mix ins as desired.
  • Form into palm sized cookies and plate.Add remaining whole almonds on top and refrigerate for 2-4 hours to firm up.


These cookies are quite soft once left at room temperature- best to store them in a fridge/freezer.

Hope to see you all stop over for Spill it, Sundays- this week we highlight other blogger’s posts or recipes!

What’s one food which has multiple textures in different forms? Oats!

No bake or baked goods? Which do you prefer?

Do you reckon it would be awesome to have a job tasting for ‘quality control’?

  1. I want to be your taste Tester! Wanna hire me? I’ll give you a special friends discount 😉
    So these are the long awaited almond version cookies. Why not the ball form this time? Actually it doesn’t really matter what form they have. Too bad I’m out of almond butter right now. And my freezer is full anyway (stuffed with muffins. I don’t have enough friends to give them to. Wanna come over and get some? I know you like frozen muffins:-D) Once there’s room again I will make another batch of these with cashew butter!
    And I think there is a place both for baked and non baked goods. Hot summer: no bake!

  2. Mmm love the almonds on the top! Along with oats, I find that the texture and form of eggs is hugely varied…gotta love versatility! Given that ice cream and cheesecake are 2 of my favorite desserts, I am going to go with no-baked desserts…oh and of course we can’t forget about cookie dough 😉

  3. Yum! I’m not usually a no-baked fan, mostly because I never get past the mixing stage. Balls or cookies or whatever never get formed. Spoon goes into bowl… you see. But if you could ship me some of these pre-made I’d be ever so grateful 😉 (it’s not like AUS and the UK are far apart or anything)

  4. Arman these look so good! Almond and cinnamon goodness 🙂
    I love baked and no baked goods equal amounts. Baked for their warm gooey straight out of the oveness and no bake for their chewy easy goodness.
    Quality control for your future no bake range? Yes please!

  5. Did you buy your almond flour or make it yourself? I couldn’t help laughing when you said you could’ve also just bought a bag of almonds – but that’s the awsome part of eating whole foods: Many variations of the same amazing, natural ingredient can make a difference, but is still yummy and unique. Great recipe, can’t wait to try it 🙂

  6. Mmm these look awesome! I love having baked goods, but they’re usually only good for the first couple days. I’ve been known to make a whole batch of fresh brownies and only eat one. I think I need to have some more “no-bake” recipes in my life!

  7. Oh no! Please don’t give me more reasons to have cookies for breakfast….my sweet tooth is already on high alert. These sound yummmyyy! Love that they have lots of good stuff in there too! No bakes will be a big feature in the next month as the heat shoots up here!

  8. Nope… you’re not making me choose between bake and no bake — I need both. No bake in the summer because it’s too hot, but bake in the winter because it’s too cold. And how would I get banana bread without baking? Or energy bites with baking? Both, and that’s my final answer 😛

    Oh, and I love your attention to texture detail… and that we’re totally on the same wavelength today with the almond cookies 😛

  9. Almonds are my favorite nut so this almond cubed cookie looks delightful.
    Apples vary in texture; fresh apples, dried apples, applesauce, apple juice, all offer different tastes and textures.
    I am far too lazy to bake and my favorite sweet treats are of the ice cream/gelato/frozen yogurt variety which is not part of your question but I’ll vote un-baked.

  10. I’m definitely self-dubbed quality control taste tester for everyone’s meals when we are out to dinner…. Especially with fries. I have to make sure they have the right balance of crispiness and softness.
    I prefer baked goods when it comes to cookies and bars. When it comes to veggies… I want them raw!

  11. I just want to point out that paleo itself already mean gluten and wheat free. Just so you know 🙂

    1. Thanks Linda, I am well aware of that, but some readers aren’t so I need to cater to them too. Just like how many products in store say ‘Vegan’ and ‘Vegetarian’ on them both 🙂

  12. Yesss these look so flipping good! I want to make them right now. Except I currently already have almond butter energy balls, chocolate zucchini muffins, and raw chocolate almond butter cups sitting in my fridge. I’ve been bored this week so I’ve just been doing lots of cooking and baking/unbaking haha. I really like raw and baked recipes – they’re different, but both are so good!

    1. …..Feel free to ship some over to Australia. Seeing as their in your fridge, they’d probably make the trip over here.

      PS I spoke to Davs today and she told me she went to your bakery in Burlington and bought 4 cupcakes. When I visit, we are buying cupcakes.

  13. Entered the giveaway in the nick of time. 😉 (I’d order maca powder!)
    I think it’s totally acceptable to taste test a few. I mean you gotta make sure they aren’t poisonous or anything! You were just fulfilling your brotherly duties.
    Since there’s also almond milk, you could even call these quadruple almond breakfast cookies. Though triple does sound better. Quadruple is kind of hard to say. 😉 I’m loving all your paleo recipes and am *thinking* about doing a little paleo challenge myself…. though it might break down the moment I get to work and realize that I can make pizza for dinner 😛

    1. DUDE! how did I forget the almond milk!!!!!

      Oh a paleo challenge? Feel free to shoot an email if you want to chat/discuss/anything- it didn’t work for me but for each of us, it’s different! 🙂

  14. Pinned! 🙂 It’s so darn hot here right now that I’m loving the idea of a no-bake cookie, so this way I don’t have to turn on the oven. These sound delicious and I’m happy to say I have all the ingredients at home right now! Yay! I can’t wait to give them a try and I think I’m going to add in a scoop of protein powder to make them a perfect filling snack to take to work with me.

  15. Scratch that, you should write a paleo breakfast ecookbook. You can make a paleo version of my pb &j chia pudding that also looks like diarrhea.

    In other news. Come shakshuka all over this fine piece of meat. But for real, message me cause WE NEED TO CHAT.

  16. These cookies are Spoons approved with all the almond love. Even I would try these, and I’m not a huge fan of almond butter (shh…don’t tell).

    You are a great big brother. Making all this deliciousness for Niki and then testing it to make sure it’s good. Total necessity by the way.

  17. Yums!!! These look so freaking good.

    After my cookie debacle of last week (two batches that disappeared from my kitchen in a matter of hours), I’m not sure I can be trusted around these – however, I’m willing to take a risk.

    Can’t wait to try!

  18. I must admit that I actually enjoy baking things and eating baked goods a smidgen more. But no-bake things will be my best friends in college. Also, anything with almond butter and coconut and oats is something worth making.
    POTATOES. Mashed, baked, fried, sliced, chipped. So many different textures, still so awesome. Mmm.

  19. I feel like I would get sick of being a quality control taste tester… it’s hard enough for me to tell differences in things as it is, I would drive myself nuts. PS love no bake recipes in the summer (even though it’s winter there xoxo)

  20. I don’t like coconut do you think they would work without or another substituition? Otherwise sounds super awesome!

    1. Of course! Try this Donna- swap the coconut flour for more almond flour (or oat flour if you’re not paleo)- and the shredded coconut for an extra tablespoon of chopped nuts. However, reduce the milk used- coconut flour is extremely absorbent 🙂

    1. Hi Mel! I haven’t put these into a calorie calculator and they depend on the number of cookies you produce from the batch- saying that, they are quite low in net carbs due to the high fiber count of the coconut. To keep the carbs lower, don’t add any dried fruits and even up the protein powder 🙂

  21. Yummy! Do you think I could leave out the shredded coconut? I hate the texture. Also, could I sub honey or maple syrup for the coconut sugar?

    1. Hi Bekah! You most certainly can leave out the shredded coconut- sub in the same amount of chopped nuts/almond flour. As for the coconut sugar- try honey instead of maple syrup as it’s less overpowering and adjust the milk to slightly less. 🙂

  22. They look great. I love almonds and I’m trying to quit refined sugar snacks so this looks perfect. Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. Sorry I was particularly slow getting over for this one. I’ve pinned it to my food board and a tweet will go out shortly 🙂

  23. No Bake Boy! not lazy, just… efficient! I love no bakes, I have three different kinds in the fridge right now, 2 are balls and one is a bar. after tomorrow, when I get a new batch of almonds, there will be another one in the fridge, YUM

  24. No bake cookies and for breakfast, even better. I might be able to handle this. My secret is I really dislike baking. I can deal with bar cookies. I don’t mind making those. But the rest of it…well, I guess I am a work in progress.

  25. Hi! I can’t wait to try your No Bake Triple Almond Cookies! I also can’t wait to look thru the rest of your recipes. Quick question – the cookies call for ‘homemade paleo chocolate chunks’; can you please tell me where I can find a recipe for those? Thanks! Cindy

  26. Word to the wise – if your almond butter comes with salt added, consider reducing the amount of salt to 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon. I put in 3/4 teaspoon (recipe called for 1 teaspoon) and it was still too salty. But beyond that? It’s lovely and I’m grateful, Arman, for that creative brain of yours!

      1. Ha! No worries, Arman. They’ll keep in the freezer and I can snack on them when I am craving salt. I’ll have my very own salt lick. You know, the big block of salt that cattle lick away at. 😉 Enjoy your week.
