A chocolate no bake cookie recipe does not have to be baked in an oven before you eat these cookies.
And this type of cookie can offer you more nutrition as well.
Raw cookies can be made by using flax seeds and nuts instead of using the over-processed white flour that's found in most cookie recipes.
A dehydrator can also be used to replace your oven to make your chocolate no bake cookie recipe or raw cookies.
This way they'll have a more crunchy texture, but still remain "raw".
