No-Bake Coconut Cookie Dough in a Jar

No-bake cookie dough. In a jar.

If that doesn’t spell lazy decadence, I don’t know what does. This no-bake cookie dough is perfect for those moments when you are desperately craving something sweet and chocolate-y, but don’t have the time (or patience) to make a full-blown batch of cookies. Not only is it the easiest of solutions to satisfy your sweet tooth, but this combination of coconut, maple syrup and chocolate is incredibly addicting. Hence the small batch size is the savior of the situation. 😉

This no-bake cookie dough takes only minutes to make and there’s no waiting for them to bake… just slow your roll for a minute to let the coconut flour set, and then you can eat the mixture straight from the jar – no raw eggs to worry about! Also versatility is a plus: grain-free baking can be so finicky, but this recipe works as the base for all kinds of add-ins. If you’re not in the mood for chocolate chips, go for dried fruit instead.  Drizzle with almond butter or sprinkle with cinnamon. Add a splash of vanilla extract if you like, the possibilities are endless!

Whichever way you spin it, this recipe is your ticket to get cookie’d up in a hurry.

P.S. This no-bake cookie dough is inspired by my friend Angela’s cookie in a jar recipe (head over there if you’re more in the market for an almond flour version of a no-bake cookie) which I’ve been a fan of for quite a while, by now.

This looks wonderful! What a delicious and healthy treat.

Tash June 3, 2015 - 4:26 pm

These remind me of Hail Mary Coconut Macaroons (at least I think that’s the name?)! Which are super delicious btw 🙂 Totally going to have to make these!

Grok Grub June 3, 2015 - 11:39 pm

Really? Never had the Hail Mary version! I would give them a try but I think I’ll just make another jar of this. 😉

Angela Privin at Paleo Kitchen Lab June 3, 2015 - 8:27 pm

This is by far the most popular recipe on my website. Even a 5 year old can make this. It’s the ultimate lazy, delicious, fun treat!! Your coconut version looks amazing.

Grok Grub June 3, 2015 - 11:42 pm

I’m a total coconut fiend (shredded coconut is my go-to snack that really fills me up) so I decided to take a break from the nuts and post this in case others feel the same…

Jasmine June 4, 2015 - 1:41 pm

This looks so good.

Sara June 4, 2015 - 2:19 pm

Wow, sounds like a tasty treat! This would sure have saved me some time when I was pregnant – I felt like I was making cookies constantly to satisfy my cravings. I will definitely be trying this.

Joanna June 4, 2015 - 2:47 pm

What a neat idea! I’ve never seen a recipe like this for cookies before so know I just have to try it. 😉

Megan Stevens June 4, 2015 - 3:15 pm

Shared these on FB today! Love the fun and goo! Such a clever, indulgent idea. The maple syrup – swoon!

Grok Grub June 4, 2015 - 3:29 pm

They ARE indulgent. That’s what I love about the tiny portion size… I can eat it all in one sitting without the guilt!

Katie | The Antidote Life June 4, 2015 - 3:52 pm

Why must you post such deliciousness!? This would be so dangerous in my house…but must be made anyhow… 😉

Grok Grub June 4, 2015 - 6:36 pm

Haha, #sorrynotsorry!

LOVE this. I’m obsessed with no-bake desserts right now. Just put one up on my site recently for no-bake almond joys too! Love that this is nut-free too. But I bet you’re right, a drizzle of almond butter would be ridiculously good on this…

Grok Grub June 4, 2015 - 8:52 pm

I think everyone gets excited about no-bake during the summer, right?

frostonthevine June 4, 2015 - 7:22 pm

Why can’t 1 serving size = 1 jar??! These look awesome. I love anything coconut!

Grok Grub June 4, 2015 - 8:12 pm

Heh, I actually made a mistake in the recipe, it serves two rather than four. Find a friend, share the jar!

Tanya (@bizzymommies) June 4, 2015 - 7:28 pm

This looks so good, I need to make these. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Hadn’t thoughts of it like that. You can eat raw coconut, so…

[…] No-Bake Coconut Cookie Dough in a Jar (Grok Grub) // This paleo cookie dough in a jar is the easiest “dessert” I’ve ever seen and it contains 4 different kinds of coconut!!! I love my coconut.

Donna June 6, 2015 - 3:02 am

YUM! I literally made this 5 minutes after reading your post, and it was delicious!! I had promised my little one we would make some cookies after her nap, but then I lost the motivation to do so – so this recipe saved me 🙂 Thanks!

Grok Grub June 6, 2015 - 10:07 pm

Awesome! Now I want a nap and cookies. 😉

Robin Follette June 7, 2015 - 2:06 am

I’d never thought coconut no bakes. I’m going on a week-long writing retreat to the Adirondaks in July and girls camp for a week in September. I think these will be a hit in both places.

Grok Grub June 7, 2015 - 2:46 am

Week-long writing retreat in the Adirondacks?! Jelly.

Katherine June 9, 2015 - 1:01 am

Ooooooh! Can’t wait to try these! One of my favourite combos, too 🙂

Grok Grub June 9, 2015 - 2:27 am

Coconut and chocolate, amiright?!

Vesna June 10, 2015 - 1:12 pm

I’m soooo making this today!

Grok Grub June 10, 2015 - 4:46 pm

Let me know how it goes. 🙂

Heather C. June 11, 2015 - 5:38 pm

This sounds delicious! I don’t “cook” much. Do you have any suggestions on how to change the recipe if I just wanted to use coconut butter?

Grok Grub June 11, 2015 - 11:07 pm

I’ll give it some thought! Coconut butter is such a different animal…

Chris Lang August 19, 2015 - 2:10 pm

I rolled mine in dark cacao powder and made them into truffles. very delicious…

Grok Grub August 19, 2015 - 3:12 pm

Wow! Sounds amazing…

Melissa November 19, 2015 - 5:10 pm

These sound delicious! Is the coconut milk regular coconut milk or the full fat coconut milk in the can?

Grok Grub November 19, 2015 - 5:27 pm

Good question, full fat coconut milk in the can!

Melissa November 19, 2015 - 6:19 pm

Thank you!
