No-bake Cacao and Cranberry Raw Cookies

These were absolutely DELICIOUS and tasted like raw cookie dough (but obviously totally safe to eat!). They also went in seconds when my family turned up for a cup of tea so a definite hit with all.

Its a recipe created by @Spamellab, aka Pamela – check out her insta/blog for some fantastic recipes and a go-to for healthy inspiration.


  • ½ cup coconut flour (I used @grapetreefoods)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder (I used @goodyfull)
  • 2 scoops whey protein powder
  • 1 large tbsp crunchy nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew…whichever you want!)
  • 1 tbsp date/coconut nectar, honey or agave syrup (I used Beloved date nectar)
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence


  1. Combine the flour, cacao powder, protein powder and sweetener in a large bowl, stirring well.
  2. Pour in your chosen syrup and add the nut butter and mix well until you have a crumbly consistency, then stir in the dried cranberries and cacao nibs.
  3. Add the milk and vanilla essence and stir well until the mixture comes together – a dough texture is the aim! Add a little more milk if too dry, or more protein powder/flour if too wet.
  4. Now divide the dough between 12 pieces, roll into a ball then press down with the back of a spoon or fork, using your fingers to mold them into a cookie shape – repeat for each.
  5. Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper or a plate and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Thank you for the recipe Pamela!
