Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
 

 (Egg free, gluten free, dairy free, nut free options. Naturally sweetened.) 

This is my healthier version of an old childhood favourite. I remember scraping the hot cookies off the trays with a spoon as a kid, because I couldn’t wait for them to cool and set – yum! 

The orginal recipe contained 2 cups of sugar (eek!!), so a few years ago I made up this version using honey or rice malt syrup. My kids love them even more than cooked bikkies as they’re so moist and chocolatey. I love them because they’re so quick and easy. They’re great for when you don’t want to turn the oven on but really want cookies.

    Hi Joe,
    Is it possible to substitute the honey/rice malt syrup for dates?
    I there a general rule to follow, when doing so? Eg: One date (or …g dates) is roughly equivalent to …g honey?
    Thanks

    Sadly a few days ago I found out that I am gluten intolerant, so all of my favourite recipes need to be changed and improved to my condition.
    Happily I am able to find all of these amazing gluten free recipes and this one seems like a perfect place to start.
