No Bake Cranberry Cookies

When it comes to simple no bake recipes, I love oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, and white chocolate cranberry cookies. 

The holiday season is my excuse to make every cookie recipe under the sun. While I do make the classics like snickerdoodles and sugar cookies, I sometimes skip the oven completely and make their no bake counterparts. 

No bake cookies are one of the easiest and most delicious desserts that require very little preparation time and few ingredients. As it is the holiday season, I am set on using holiday combinations, and the white chocolate and cranberry one is one of my favorites.

Now, these aren’t your traditional no bake cookies. There is no flour, no butter, and no grains needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is soft, chewy, and thick. They taste like vanilla cookies flavored with sweet white chocolate pieces that balance out the tartness of the cranberries. 

Naturally low carb and easily made sugar free, these are the kind of no bake cookies PERFECT for your keto and low carb friends!

How do you make white chocolate no bake cookies?

The Ingredients

  • Cashew butter– Smooth and drippy cashew butter, with no added sugar. Try to use a cashew butter with a thin texture, otherwise, it will be harder to mix into the other ingredients. 
  • Maple syrup– Either traditional maple syrup or a keto maple syrup. I used the latter to keep it keto friendly, but the traditional version works if you aren’t following a sugar free diet. 
  • Coconut flour– A low carb and high fiber flour, this holds the cookies together, and also gives it a cakey texture. 
  • Vanilla extract– Gives a touch of vanilla flavor to the cookies. 
  • White chocolate chips– What is a cranberry recipe without any white chocolate in it? Either keto white chocolate chips or standard white chocolate chips.
  • Dried Cranberries– Be sure to use 100% unsweetened dried cranberries. 

The Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your cashew butter, maple syrup, and coconut flour, until combined. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold through your white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. 

Using your hands, form small balls of dough and place on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down on each ball and using a fork, cross two sides. Refrigerate the cookies for at least 30 minutes, to firm up.

Can I replace the cashew butter?

If you’d like to use something else instead of cashew butter, you can use either almond butter, peanut butter, or sunflower seed butter. Again, ensure your nut/seed butter is drippy in texture and is sugar free. 

Storing and freezing tips

  • To store: Cookies soften at room temperature, so should be stored in the refrigerator. Keep them covered (in a sealed container) and they will keep fresh for up to 2 weeks. 
  • To freeze: Store cookies in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  1. These look too good! I need to make some dairy free white chocolate 🙂 I was going to bake with molasses this week so good reminder to keep my hair up too.

  2. The last time my sister and I were together at a family dinner, she was laughing so hard she flipped her hair into the candle on the table. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen both because she sounded like a seal when she laughed and because her hair was like a fireworks show. Can’t wait for this year haha

  3. Drooling. Despite the fact that I just ate breakfast. Flipping my hair in molasses and cranberry sauce is definitely something I would do, so I empathize with Niki. One time we were having a Christmas party, and we had candles on the table. They started dripping hot wax and burning the table cloth, and no one realized until the neighbor’s kid was like, “I think your table is burning.”
    Good.
    So very excited for these 🙂

  4. White chocolate cranberry is a holiday classic! And honestly, the holidays just arent the same until someone gets mad and storms off while someone else is splattering the kitchen walls with cranberry sauce. But thats the holidays for you, right? Here’s to hoping that Panda eats the turkey off of the table this year. That would really get your Mom happy, right?

    1. She’d be thrilled! I’m actually loving this combo now- I tried a sheet cake with these two flavors and wow!

  5. LOL I always love the backstory behind your recipes. I think I need a Niki in my life to make my content more interesting to read haha. Anywhoo, white chocolate and cranberry are some of my favorite holiday flavor combos, so you hit this one out of the park for me!

  6. Both trifle and sticky date pudding on one and the same eve? Invite me over should you ever have an event like that again, please. I’ll even handle the molasses in exchange ;).
    And O.C.! I feel I might need to watch a few episodes again.
    These cookies look and sound great.

    1. YES! Niki goes from start to finish, repeat. Although skips parts of season 4 because that was kind of crap!

  7. I bet Niki can attribute the glow in her hair to this very incident.

    I love the combination of white chocolate, cranberry and orange. I have a scone recipe in fact with these very flavors.

    1. Oh hell yes. I need to try adding some orange zest next time…or just eating some oranges with it!

  8. It would be nice to heave a healthier dessert like this at the Thanksgiving table (or with all the leftovers for the rest of the weekend haha) These sound awesome!

  9. Haha – you are so wrong – but this is too funny – unless you are your sister! Molasses alone is so hard to clean up – that must have been one heck of a task cleaning it and the cranberry sauce off the kitchen AND getting it out of her hair!
    Arman, your mom sure knows how to do Christmas dessert – gingerbread men, trifle, sticky date pudding, cheesecake and panettone sounds like one heck of a spread! As do these cookies all by themselves! Love how firm they look AND they are no bake!

    1. It was SO funny- Like, even with shampoo and conditioner, it wouldn’t come out and for 3 days there was this really strong scent!

  10. I never watched the O.C. but Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill were a couple I loved. Oh, Niki. It’s hilarious how many stories you have of her antics. 🙂 These cookies could make their way to my house in the mail, no? Or any of your treats. Just sayin…

    1. oh don’t get me started on OTH. My sister was obsessed with that too. I wanted to throw molasses at Peyton.

  11. Poor Niki…oh the torture! It is pretty funny though! And yum on the cookies…already pinned them this morning!

  12. Hair flipping is an art that should not be entered into lightly 😉
    I am amazed that these are healthy! They look so so yummy!

  13. Is it crazy that I’ve never seen the OC? I guess I should lump that in with HP? And I actually put honey in my hair as a treatment — leaves it so soft 😛 Not sure about molasses, though. Dare me to try it?
