These no bake white chocolate raspberry cookies need just 5 ingredients to make and yield perfect thick, soft, and chewy cookies.
My family reckons my raspberry cookies are one of my best cookie recipes, so I elevated them with a few tweaks to make a simple, no-bake version with one key addition- white chocolate.
White chocolate and raspberries make the most incredible combination (hello, white chocolate raspberry blondies) and the tartness from the berries balances out the overtly sweet white chocolate. My recipe is also different because it involves no baking!

Ingredients Needed (and substitutions)
As mentioned earlier, this recipe calls for just five simple ingredients. Here is what you’ll need:
- Coconut flour. A safe-to-eat flour in its raw state. It’s gluten-free and grain-free and doesn’t have any coconut flavor.
- Cashew butter. Smooth and creamy cashew butter. If you don’t have cashew butter, use almond butter or peanut butter.
- Maple syrup. Sweetens the cookies and helps bind them together. Honey or agave nectar will also work.
- White chocolate. Use your favorite brand of white chocolate to make these no-bake cookies. Chop them into tiny or big pieces per your liking.
- Dried raspberries. The best part of this recipe is that you don’t have to wait all summer for fresh raspberries. Use freeze-dried or dried raspberries to make this recipe.
- Milk of choice. Use plant-based or dairy milk of your choice to bring the dough together.

How to make white chocolate raspberry cookies
Step 1- Melt the wet ingredients. Add cashew butter and maple syrup to a microwave-safe bowl and melt it. Alternatively, melt them together on a stovetop. Mix it until homogenous and set aside.
Step 2- Make the cookie dough. Pour the liquid mixture over the coconut flour and stir to combine. Fold in white chocolate pieces and dried raspberries. Add milk to adjust the consistency if the mixture is too difficult to shape.
Step 3- Shape your cookies. Make even-sized balls from the dough, place them on the prepped baking tray, and gently press to achieve the cookie shape.
Step 4- Set the cookies. Mark the cookies by pressing them down with a fork. Then, transfer the tray to the fridge and refrigerate until it firms up.
Recipe tips and variations
- Adjust the sweetness. Sometimes, the white chocolate can be overpowering and a little too sweet (yes, even as a diehard sweet tooth I can admit this!). So, add more or less based on your preference.
- Use best quality ingredients. Since this recipe uses only five simple ingredients, ensure you use only good-quality ones.
- Make them double chocolate. Add some complexity to the recipe by folding a few dark chocolate chips into your mix.
- Optional mix-ins. Add chopped nuts and other dried berries to the recipe. You could also drizzle melted white chocolate or decorate with a lemon glaze.
To store. Refrigerate these cookies in an airtight box for up to two weeks.
To freeze. These cookies freeze well for up to six months. Wrap the cookies in parchment paper and freeze them in ziplock bags.

Frequently asked questions
While most ingredients are compatible with a vegan lifestyle, substitute dairy milk with plant-based milk and white chocolate with vegan white chocolate.
This happens if your cookie dough is too thick or too crumbly. Fix your dough by adding some milk to it.
Substitute coconut flour with blanched almond flour for a grain-free recipe. Because almond flour is less absorbent, you’ll need to use twice the amount of flour to replace coconut flour in this recipe.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies
- Line a large baking tray or plate with baking paper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut flour and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your cashew butter with maple syrup and heat until melted and mix to incorporate.
- Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir until fully combined. Fold through your chocolate pieces and dried raspberries and mix well. If the batter is a little too crumbly, add some milk of choice until a thick batter remains.
- Using your hands, form 12 balls and press down to a cookie shape on the baking tray. Using a fork, press down on it twice and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until firm.
