What Are Sugar-Free No-Bake Cookies?
These sugar-free no-bake cookies are inspired by the popular Afghan biscuit recipe.
Traditional Afghan cookies are delicious but carb-loaded cocoa buttery biscuits with crunchy pieces of cornflakes in the middle, covered with chocolate glazing and a half walnut in the middle.

How To Make Sugar-Free No-Bake Cookies
These sugar-free no-bake cookies look like Afghan biscuits and the pieces of walnuts mimic the usual cornflakes used in the classic recipe.
But they are made entirely with only low-carb ingredients.
No-bake recipes are the best way to enjoy a healthy sweet treat in less than 30 minutes.
All need to make these no-bake cookies are:
- Almond Flour – prefer ultra-fine almond flour to avoid this gritty texture that a coarser almond meal can sometimes bring. Almond flour is one of the best keto-friendly flours.
- Walnuts – make sure you roughly chop them, you want to keep bites and pieces of walnuts to mimic the cornflakes that you would find in an Afghan biscuit.
- Flaxseed Meal – it adds a good bunch of fiber and healthy fats to these bars.
- Sugar-free Crystal Sweetener – I love to use erythritol or Monk fruit sugar. Both are natural, sugar-free, and low-carb sweeteners, safe for diabetics. If you are on a paleo diet, coconut sugar would work as well but would up the carbs.
- Coconut Oil – refined or unrefined depending on how you like coconut flavor. The refined coconut oil doesn’t add a coconut flavor to your baking.
- Peanut Butter – or any seed or nut butter you like I also love to use almond butter or sunflower seed butter for nut-free butter. Sugar-free desserts like this must be made with natural peanut butter, containing no sugar.
- Cocoa Powder – prefer unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder.
- Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – I used stevia-sweetened chocolate, but any dark chocolate >85% cocoa is a healthy option. You can also make your own sugar-free chocolate chips.
- Coconut Cream – or full-fat cream if you are not vegan and tolerate dairy.
- Almond Flour: if you’re allergic to almonds, you can try oat flour or sunflower seed flour, but the macros would be different.
- Walnuts: or any other nut such as pecan nuts, Brazil nuts, or even seeds such as sunflower seeds.
- Erythritol: you can use any crystal sweetener such as allulose, tagatose, or coconut sugar.
- Peanut Butter: substitute the peanut butter for any other nut butter (cashew butter or almond butter), or seed butter such as sunflower seed butter.
These sugar-free no-bake cookies are perfect for storing for up to 4 weeks in the fridge.
You can also freeze them, simply defrost them an hour before snack, and they will be delicious.
