trust me, just because i gave up a strict vegan diet doesn’t mean i didn’t let go of a few tricks i had learned during that time. for one, vegan desserts are amazingly good and can taste quite rich. i remember once taking my mom to candle 79 where she was speechless as to how we were eating such crazy-good chocolate cake. anyone who has had the treats at babycakes in the lower east side can attest to their tastiness.

et voila: so i made fudge-y no-bake oatmeal cookies. and ooooh my were they delish. easy to make, easy to eat. perfect post-meal. you can make them as big or small as you’d like, but i prefer the 2-bite size because they’re nice to bite into. ooey, gooey, lovely, rich, crazy-healthy, and quick. what’s not to love? —nadiact

Thank you for these! They remind me of a chocolate oatmeal no bake cookie my mom used to make that I had completely forgotten. I really appreciate this updated version!!
