Before we jump in, I’ve got an exciting recipe collaboration coming at you Tuesday- Check this out for a teaser.

“When I go to America, I’m breaking up with Peanut Butter.”

“…….Why?”

“Because. ALL the store bought nut butters are so expensive except for Peanut Butter. In America, almond butter is cheap like water.”

Oh Arman. You silly, naive (latte complexioned) Australian. 

I left my sister in a perplexed state after providing her with the benefits of being in America.

Me-Foodie products, $2 tacos on Tuesdays and saying the word herb with a silent ‘h’.

Her- Shopping, margaritas in Soho, shopping, posing, shopping and posing. 

Yep, we’re siblings.

For the healthy foodie who lives anywhere besides America would know the pain- Forking over $10 for a tiny jar of nut butter and some even edging closer to $20 (Coconut butter, I’m looking at you). The notion of coming to America to get all my favourites at prices closer to what I pay for peanut butter back home seemed like a dream.

…Until I saw some of the prices here. While slightly cheaper (After taking into account the more powerful American dollar), there wasn’t that much of a difference in price. Almond butter, cashew butter and well, any nut butter besides peanut butter must be on a vendetta to have a baseline price on a global level….just like Apple and their products. 

Fail. Whale. 

When the epic folk at Blue Diamond  sent me their lightly salted and dark chocolate almonds, I knew the first thing I had to make (using my housemates food processor)

Almond butter.

Specifically, dark chocolate almond butter. 

Bite me, expensive prices. (Please don’t. I’m a naive latte toned Aussie).

However, today’s recipe isn’t for the dark chocolate almond butter because that would be just silly. It would only take 1 line to write. Ingredients – Dark chocolate almonds. Method– Blend. There you go. Instead, we have these No Bake Tiramisu Cookies!

These No Bake Tiramisu Cookies look fancy, taste fancy but are so simple to whip up. They are a healthy breakfast choice or snack between meals. They take less than 10 minutes to whip up and can be eaten immediately or if your like me and taste and texture fan, refrigerated for 10-20 minutes to firm up. 

Let’s talk texture. Doughy, chewy, slightly dense  and when eaten straight from the fridge, are just like a piece of a slightly soft fudge. 

Let’s talk taste. Rich, slightly bitter and with a nutty aftertaste, it’s like eating dessert for breakfast. Well, with such healthy ingredients, it is perfectly acceptable- It’s what I did yesterday! As with many of my recipes, I’ve also included a trialled and tested paleo friendly version (with necessary amendments) which taste just as good! I recommend this flour for the gluten free version and this flour for the paleo version!

Make these No Bake Tiramisu Cookies and do one better and use Blue Diamond Dark Chocolate Almonds (or any of their delicious almonds!) to make the nut butter too. It’s worth it. 

Warning- The almond butter is dangerous and may not even make it in the batter.

  6. 2 T granulated sweetener of choice (optional)

  8. 1/4- 3/4 cup dairy free milk (I used Blue Diamond Unsweetened vanilla)**
  9. Espresso powder, granulated sweetener of choice to dust
For the paleo version
  1. 1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted (can sub for almond or cashew flour)
  2. 1 T cocoa powder
  3. 1 T espresso powder (or ground coffee powder)
  4. 1/4 tsp sea salt

  8. 1/2- 1 cup+ dairy free milk (I used Blue Diamond Unsweetened vanilla)**
  9. Espresso powder, granulated sweetener of choice to dust
Instructions
  1. Line a large plate with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, sea salt, protein powder and mix well.
  3. Stir through the almond butter and mix through dry mixture until very crumbly.
  4. Using a tablespoon, add the unsweetened almond milk until a very thick dough is formed. Using your hands, form into palm sized cookie shapes and press firmly on the plate.

  1. Yum! Another awesome no bake! And I agree the price of almond butter makes me cringe. Sunflower seed butter is inexpensive though, cashew is a bit cheaper too. Big price differences between brands though and where you buy.

  2. These are awesome. I make almond butter all the time at home because it is cheaper and tastes so much better than any of the ones I have had from the stores (I’m looking at you Justin’s). They are one of my favorite things to make. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. I do make my own nut butters exactly because they are so darn expensive. I usually make big bulks as it’s so messy and I hate cleaning the food processor.
    Most expensive items are coconut flour and beet root powder. But I needed this. Seriously. I need to red velvet everything sometimes 😉

    I totally feel like a stalker as this is about the 4th comment I am leaving somewhere for you today 😛 And after hitting the “post comment” button I am going directly to the kitchen to make these cookies.

  4. Wow! Those prices are crazy! I guess we take our nut butter prices for granted here in the US, but the “cheap like water” doesn’t work in LA…we’re in the worst drought ever and our water prices just keep rising! 🙁

    Your no bake cookies sound marvelous and so healthy, to boot! Lovely that you included a Paleo version too, I know some friends that would love this recipe! Nice job!

  5. I don’t make my own peanut butter. I probably should, but I don’t. The nut butter are definitely pricey but I seek out PB & Co. for a good price and also get the Flax and Chia Seed peanut butter at Trader Joe’s which is pretty cheap.

  6. You sure know the way to a girls heart <3. Tiramisu is one of my main loves! Even better that these are healthy for ya and not filled with whipping cream. And yes, nut butter prices are outrageous everywhere. LETS RIOT

  7. Not only do they look and taste fancy, but also they sound the same way! The only thing I’m upset about is you haven’t incorporated any mascarpone in your “tiramisu dessert line”. Sure, they won’t be a healthy version anymore, but this cheating on tiramisu is just outrageous! 🙂 Just kidding though – awesome work!

  8. I do not make my own nut butters because I have never thought about it. The most expensive thing on my shopping list is probably when I buy organic produce (hardly ever, but sometimes I feel guilty) =P

  9. yeah, I like to make my own, but fancy nut butters are kind of a gift I give myself, you should see my collection. Rosemary is a lucky pup, she gets some sometimes.

    I CANNOT WAIT TO MAKE THESE.

  10. Ok how painful is the realisation of nut butter prices? I discovered the same when I went to NYC thinking I’d make up for the flight with all the money I’d save on nut butter… damn. In France, they don’t even have peanut butter in most shops! Oh and Starbucks – another thing with a universal cost. Hmph.

  11. That is pretty devastating as I thought everything was so cheap in America! I reckon it is because you are in NY. That place is just as expensive as London and Sydney! This recipe looks really good – chocolate and coffee flavours – so good. I had a mocha nakd bar the other day – so good.

  12. Dear Arman, thank you for your kind message. I had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Looking forward to sharing pictures and recipes soon. Now on to these cookies! What a delicious treat…I love the sound of that nut butter. Have a wonderful day my friend!

  13. Holy deliciousness, Arman! I have so many (awesome) things to say about this post that I don’t know where to begin. (1) Tiramisu. It’s from Italy. We all know how I feel about Italian food. Therefore I need these cookies in my mouth right now. (2) Food processor. I caught that little note that you used your housemate’s. Have you reconsidered your hatred for food processors now that you can use it to create much cheaper nut butters? I think so. (3) Blue Diamond. I love their almonds. Esp the smokehouse ones. But somehow I don’t think a Smokehouse Tiramisu Cookie would be all that good. Maybe a Smokehouse Chicken Cookie? Can you get to work on that? 🙂 (Note: I wouldn’t make that one no-bake. Just sayin’.) I hope you had an awesome weekend in the city, mate!

    1. Haha let’s dissect it then. 1. Grazie, mon ami. (That was more French).
      2. Hahahaha I must say, they aren’t the worst for making nut butters
      3. YES. YES. And Blue Diamond need to take note of your love 😉

  14. It just seems like anything that is good, quality, and desirable is also budget-breaking. However, these look like they’d be well worth it. 🙂

  15. Ohhhh baby… come to mama! Not quite sure if I was talkin’ to you or the cookies, but it applies either way! 😉
    Seriously, dude… no bake AND tiramisu?! GIMME!
    By the way, tiramisu is another one of those words that I LOVE to say out loud 3 different ways to intentionally tick people off. TEER-a-me-soo or Teer-a-MEE-soo or Teer-a-me-SOO

    (You’re saying them out loud right now, right?!)

  16. This recipe had me sold at tiramisu! A huge fan or anything tiramisu, but I love what you’ve done to turn it into bite-sized treats Arman!

  17. Hello there. I have two questions: 1) How many cookies does each version yield. 2) Since we don’t all use the same protein powders, I don’t know what one “scoop” (or package or container, for that matter) means. Can you tell me (us) the amount in grams or cups?
    Thanks so much and have a great day.

  18. True story: I’ve completely stopped looking at the price of almond butter because I die a little inside each time I see how much it costs, and there’s no way in heck I’m giving up one of my biggest addictions. And I’d make my own more often, but I die a little inside whenever I have to listen to the almonds in the food processor. Basically, I’m screwed 😆

  19. And this is why I love peanut butter. Also, it’s taste fantastic and is far superior to those other nut butters.

    Dark chocolate almond butter doesn’t sound so bad though. I’d definitely eat that. Can you bring some over? I’ll provide the spoon.

  20. Whoa, these look awesome and no-bake…amazing! I love all the flair in this post from the funky imprinting on the cookies to those super stylish fonts and colors. So New York, lol!

    1. Hi Katie! I’m SO sorry for missing your question on Pinterest! Definitely sub it for Sunbutter (or soy butter if you like!). Just see if you can use an unsalted kind- I did it the first time and it was very salty (the Sunbutter brand!).

      And thank you so much for your kind words- Let’s eat cake 😀

  21. I just made these cookies and they are delicious! They taste great but are a bit mushy. Will they harden up in the fridge? Is there any way I could toss them in the oven for a bit? Please let me know. Thanks!

  22. Holy Smokes! The Blue Diamond dark chocolate almond butter is to freaking die for….I’m ruined for all other almond butter!!!

  23. Hi Arman! I found your site while searching for healthy sweets and love the recipes you’ve posted. I have a quick question (which I am sure you have addressed somewhere on your blog) but do you post nutritional info? or happen to have the nutritional information for this recipe? Thanks!

    1. Hey Kim! Thanks so much for your kind words- Unfortunately, I don’t share nutritional info as I focus on the ingredients- However, if you plug in the ingredients in a calorie calculator, it will provide it for you 🙂 Enjoy!

  24. Please come be my personal chef!!!! I’m always almost afraid to read your recipes because I always have to get up and go make it right away.
