No-Bake Christmas Tree Cookies

Here’s a delicious no-bake Christmas tree cookie recipe. The ingredients are suitable for a plant-based or vegan diet.

These no-bake cookies are not only tasty, but they also look very cute. They are easy to make and you don’t need a food processor. As always, you can adjust the recipe to your liking.

No-Bake Christmas Tree Cookies

I used hazelnut butter, but you can use any nut butter you like. Lately, I love using orange jam as a sweetener in my recipes. However, you can use maple syrup, honey or anything you like.

I used oat flour and desiccated coconut to make my cookies. If you have gluten-sensitivity, make sure that you use gluten-free oats. You can also replace the oat flour with desiccated coconut or nut flour to make the recipe paleo-friendly. Or, use dried fruit as a binder in order to cut down on the fat. It’s up to you!

Finally, I made a green matcha glaze for my cookies, but don’t worry if you don’t have matcha powder at home. You can make a snow-like glaze by using melted white chocolate, or by combining a little bit of water, coconut oil or plant-based milk with some powdered sugar and/or desiccated coconut. You can of course use some melted dark chocolate instead, as I did for a few of my cookies. There are so many options! Also, I decorated my cookies with some seeds and chopped dried cranberries. This is optional.

I shaped my cookies by filling a Christmas tree cookie cutter with spoonfuls of the mixture. I find this method easier than trying to make a layer of dough and cutting the cookies individually.

This recipe is enough for six cookies.

Yield: 6 cookies

No-Bake Christmas Tree Cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies

2 tablespoons hazelnut butter (or another nut butter)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 tablespoons orange jam (or another sweetener)

½ cup oat flour

¼ cup desiccated coconut

Clove and cinnamon - optional

For the glaze

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/3 teaspoon of matcha powder

1 teaspoon powdered sugar (or another sweetener)

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

Melted chocolate - optional

For decoration

Desiccated coconut, seeds and dried fruit

Instructions

For the cookies

Mix all the ingredients except for the oat flour and desiccated coconut.

Then, add the oat flour and desiccated coconut and mix everything until you have a homogenous mixture.

Fill your cookie cutters with the mixture, making a layer that’s thick enough so the cookies won’t break when you take them out. If the mixture is too soft, add some more flour or put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

When you are done, leave the cookies in the fridge while you prepare the glaze.

For the glaze

Melt the coconut oil and add the rest of the ingredients.

Mix everything thoroughly and spread the glaze onto the cookies.

Decorate with seeds, dried fruit and desiccated coconut.

Put the cookies in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to harden up.

Enjoy!
