Confession time: Save for the few we shared with friends, my husband and I ate all the cookies this recipe makes.

Let me repeat that.

My husband and I ate an entire tray of these cookies. In the span of a weekend. Because we’re cool like that.

    In our defense, we were really active that weekend and both craving something sweet after all the physical activity, which consisted of walking the dog and baby up and down hills in our neighborhood for miles and wrangling a Christmas tree into our small SUV, then into our home.

    That said, eating an entire pan of cookies is kind of embarrassing.

    Except! I tell y’all this to say that these no-bake cookies are out-of-this-world delish.

    These Speculoos No-Bake Cookies stay gooey long after they are cooled, and they taste like gingerbread without being overwhelmingly ginger-y. (Another confession: Traditional gingerbread cookies don’t do it for me… so I have to do gingerbread-light things whenever I want a taste of that because I find the usual spice packed into the cookies overwhelming.)

    The rolled oats add a nice crunch, as does the colored sugar for decorating.

    And these cookies will fly off the pan, ensuring they won’t be around for too long, because they taste so darn good!

    • Prepare a small baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Set aside.
    • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the coconut oil.
    • Add the maple syrup, Speculoos, milk and the maple syrup. Stir until combined and melted.
    • Remove from the heat, and add the vanilla extract, powdered sugar and oats.
    • Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet.
    • Sprinkle the colored sugars (or sprinkles) on top of the scooped cookies.
    • Cool in the refrigerator for at least three hours, then enjoy!


    Cookies should be stored in the refrigerator, as they will fall apart and get super gooey if left out for too long.
