6-ingredient No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

The cookies that prompted me to make a “cookbook” category 🙂

Full Disclosure: I have gotten into the habit of dumping ingredients into the food processor, so I’m approximating on measurements. If any number seems off, you’re probably right. Feel free to adjust, accordingly.

I have a cute little Oster from the 1960s. It was my grandma’s. Hence the small output for my recipe.


  • 3/4 cup oatgroats (soaked overnight) 
  • 1 1/2-2 Tablespoons Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2-2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon Liquid Aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Actually I use imitation, tbh.  You can sub real vanilla beans, of course)
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

Mix all ingredients in the food processor to achieve an oatmeal-cookie-esque texture. 

Grease a plate or cookie sheet. Or do it the easy way (I know I did) and just lay a sheet of wax paper on a plate.

Plop down spoonfuls of dough on the wax paper, flattening each spoonful as you go.

Freeze the cookies for several hours, to achieve solidification and cold-cookie-ness. 

They are delicious, I promise 🙂

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
