Believe it or not, but baking has graduated from being the hobby of a foodie to actually becoming an essential activity over the weekends. The ingredients may come under the essential category, but the tools don’t. That’s why we need more ideas for no-bake desserts.
Here we’ve curated a list of no-bake desserts just so ovenless cooks can whip up a good tray of chocolate chip cookies or even a cheesecake to enjoy. These recipes will prove once and for all that the beauty of cooking truly lies deep in creativity and adaptation.
If the cake was to be the king of desserts, then cookies will no doubt be dubbed the queen. Something about its chewiness and the sweet thrill it gives us just makes this little round foodstuff a real-life enrichment. This no-bake version also looks just as great, causing you to temporarily forget about the baked ones.
Healthy, hearty, and easy: what is there not to love about energy balls? The even greater part is that the range of flavours and ingredients you can play around with is endless. If you love it nutty, then, by all means, peanut butter and roasted nuts should be your options. For a chocolate version, just go all out with cocoa powder, dark chocolate bits, or even cacao nibs. Flour-wise, you can use oats (rolled or flour), AP flour or even almond flour, whole wheat, and, in this case, quinoa is the main base.
