Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Libertarian Country |

A few years ago I was looking for a recipe to help my wife ween off of the processed sugary sweets she and many like her in our generation have come to subsist on.

We came from the generation that got our breakfast and lunch and all of our snacks from boxes. Almost everything we ate was processed garbage

Processed food is extremely difficult to break away from due to the powerful biomechanical feedback built into our brains that reward us when we consume the most calorie-dense foods we can find. 

Big food companies understand that the human body will crave junk food because it is part of our survival instincts to keep eating the food that has the most calories.

They take no shame in hijacking our bodies at an early age with their government-funded propaganda, nor do they resist hijacking our paychecks with their industry's government subsidies

I figured one way to fight the man was to start eating healthy and cooking everything from scratch. At least we could help prevent some of the diseases that are associated with the Standard American Diet

They get you hooked on their junk food, then you have to get hooked on big pharma's pills to keep you "healthy". 

It's a vicious cycle. 

Breaking the chains of processed food addiction is quite difficult, but it can be made a lot easier when you get the right recipes. I started making these for my wife and she now craves them instead of pre-packaged sugary poison. 

My favorite part about this recipe below is that it is so high in fiber but it does not taste like it at all. Dates are an amazing food that is packed with vital nutrients and health benefits. Walnuts and oats are fantastic as well, and I try to never miss a day without getting some flaxseed. 

I digress. Below is the recipe for these awesome oatmeal walnut cookies!

Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

  • 2 Cups of Organic Pitted Deglet Noor or Medjool Dates
  • 1 Cup of Organic Walnuts
  • 1 Cup of Organic Oat bran or Rolled Oats
  • 2 Teaspoons of Powdered Cinnamon  
  • 1 Tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal
  • 3 Tablespoons of Date Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Almond Extract 
  • 2 Tablespoons of Hot Water 



You will need a good food processor for this recipe. Put the dates, walnuts, and oats into the food processor. Crush everything together until the mixture is consistently dry and crumbly. There will be some powder, which is okay.

Do not add the water or extracts yet. 

Next, combine the date sugar, cinnamon, flaxseed meal, vanilla, and almond extract in the processor with the rest of the mixture. 

Heat up 4-6 oz of hot water. I typically use my Keurig to just dispense the lowest amount of hot water into my measuring cup. 

Then take 2 tablespoons of the hot water and mix it into the processor. Process it until it forms a dough-like batter. 

If it doesn't form a nice thick dough, add a little water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and blend until you get it perfect. 

Then, remove the dough from the processor and knead it a little to check for pits (sometimes even the "unpitted" dates will contain pieces of the pit). Form it into one giant ball and wrap it into parchment paper.

Leave in the refrigerator for 4 hours.  

Once the dough has cured, you can form them into any size of cookies you want. I usually take a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, then flatten it down with a fork twice to get the texture on the front.
