No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies  made with pure maple syrup | Mama Papa Bubba

What do you do at midnight the night before you leave for a weekend away in Dubai?  Attempt a new recipe so your little one has treats while you’re away, of course.  That and create an activity bag for each day you’re away. ☺

I needed something quick and easy, which got me thinking about the classic no-bake drop cookies you’d see on sweet platters growing up.  Of course white sugar {one of the recipe’s main ingredients} was out, so I hoped that using pure organic maple syrup would work instead.  While delicious and more than sweet enough, at first they were quite a bit stickier than the ones made with the original recipe are, but given overnight to set, they turned out exactly like the ones I remember from my childhood.  Here’s hoping Miss G loves them!


No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Sweetened With Pure Maple Syrup {adapted from this recipe}

  • 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/8 cup of milk
  • 4 teaspoons of good cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla
  • 1 cup of old-fashioned oats


Put the first set of ingredients in a large pot over medium heat and whisk constantly until boiling.  Continue to whisk as the mixture boils for 5 to 10 minutes and thickens.  Remove from heat and add a generous cup of old-fashioned oats.  Stir well and drop onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or scoop into silicon moulds and press down firmly.  Allow to set.



UPDATE:  Miss G absolutely loved these cookies and they were one of the first things she told me about upon my arrival. ☺
