Dark Chocolate No-Bake Cookies (Gluten AND Dairy Free!!)

Dark Chocolate. Gluten & Dairy Free. No-Bake. Need I say more?!? LOL! These cookies are simply sinful…and addicting! This is the 2nd batch in a week that I’ve made!! Of course I DID have a little push…. I won’t mention any names, but you know who you are! 😉  Rest a little easier though, because I  cut the margarine way down, and you can’t feel too guilty because its made with dark chocolate (full of antioxidants!), peanut butter and oats! You make these in the microwave instead of the stove-top, and its SO much easier this way! And trust me…. you’ll be licking the bowl clean after scooping these bad boys out! Definitely not your average no-bake cookie! Give this one a try! enjoy! 🙂

Dark Chocolate No-Bake Cookies (Printable Version)


3 Tbsp non-dairy margarine
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup almond milk
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
2 cups quick-cooking oats
3 Tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder


In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the margarine in a microwave. Stir in the sugar and milk. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt, stirring until well blended. Add the oats and cocoa powder and stir until well mixed. Cook for another minute in the microwave. Stir well. Using a cookie scoop, place onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. Flatten them down a little if you want more of a cookie appearance! Pop in the fridge until firm, about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
