White Chocolate No Bake Cookies Recipe

White Chocolate No Bake Cookies are a great twist on the classic Chocolate No Bake Cookie recipe. You know the one, the magical blend of chocolate, peanut butter, and oats that has been in many a lunch box or eaten as a much looked forward to after-school snack. Who doesn’t love that cookie recipe? But, and this is tragic news: we have close friends that have a chocolate allergy.

If they have too much chocolate they suffer from sinus issues and just don’t feel good at all. I know, as a chocolate addict, that that sounds like the worst allergy ever. Enter this cookie recipe. Without the cocoa butter found in chocolate, even those with a chocolate allergy can indulge. This way, even when there’s a carry-in or we need to bring a snack, I’ve got something that I know everyone can enjoy.

It’s also a fantastic twist on a favorite. This no bake cookie recipe provides the same convenience of the traditional recipe but the white chocolate addition makes a nice, tasty change. Plus, it looks fabulous. It’s a nice shade. The white chocolate ups the attractive of the finished product. If you need a bake sale goodies, this should be it. People love their no bake cookies–and they will love the white chocolate substitution too.

No white chocolate chips? Me neither. How did I let that happen? So, I used four blocks of white chocolate. I have no idea if that’s close to the 3/8 cup requested in this recipe for White Chocolate No Bake Cookies but I thought it felt right. Use your best judgment and see how it looks to you. Either way, it was fantastic.

Great Homemade Recipes

I did add an extra 1/4 cup of oats to the mixture because it did not look quite right–and it turned out with success. Store these in a covered container to keep them fresh. Try to avoid using a cookie tin. They make even a soft cookie turn hard over time. Instead, a plastic container will keep these soft and tasty for days. Not that there will be any left.

It is my opinion that this no bake cookies recipe would make a great base to play with. I mean, I changed both the white chocolate and the oats amount and they were fantastic, so what else could we throw into this one? How else can we tweak it for more options?

Although, truth be told, the original recipe is so good I just don’t know if I want to do anything to it. And, really, I don’t know if the boys in this house would let me. We all really enjoyed this one. I found this original recipe on Indiana blogger Sarah Lynn’s Sweets website.

  1. I’m not sure. White chocolate does make a good binder so maybe it would turn out. Perhaps use a little more than the recipe calls for just to make sure. :) Good luck!

  2. Would it still work if I was not to use peanut butter, what could I replace it with?
