Dark Chocolate No Bake Cookies Recipe by Darina Coffey

What’s better than freshly baked cookies? Cookies that require no creaming, no sifting and no oven! These no bake dark chocolate cookies are kind of like a healthier tiffin/grown up rice crispy bun hybrid in handy bite size form.

With crunchy granola and coconut, tart goji berries and vibrant pistachios, this no bake cookies recipe creates heavenly little mouthfuls you can whip up in minutes! Don’t skip the final step of adding sea salt – trust me, it heightens the chocolate flavour and creates that irresistible sweet and salty flavour combo!

100g nut-based granola, or any granola you like
70g goji berries, or any dried fruit
70g shelled pistachio nuts
50g dessicated coconut
1 tsp espresso powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
25g white chocolate, melted (optional)
Pinch of sea salt flakes


1. Over a bain marie or in the microwave, melt your chocolate gently and add espresso powder and vanilla once melted and smooth.
