No Bake Breakthroughs
Deliciously sweet treats you simply whip up and chill until set – no oven required!
Starting with a bright, healthy and colorful way to start the day, this breakfast pizza transforms your favorite granola into a tasty “crust” with the help of some coconut oil, though you could use butter. Simply process your granola with the oil before molding into the base for your pizza and freezing for 10 minutes. Once chilled, spread a layer of yogurt (use Greek for extra protein) and top with your favorite fruits.
Pie is always a great idea, especially when it is as easy as this! Made with crushed pretzels, butter and sugar, the crust is an awesome combo of salty and sweet. After pressing the crust into the bottom and sides of a pie plate, whip together cream cheese, caramel, vanilla and heavy cream for your caramel filling. After a few hours in the fridge, drizzle with extra caramel and a sprinkling of sea salt and serve.
Proof of the magic of instant oatmeal! This recipe uses 8 Cinnamon Roll-flavored oatmeal packets to create a delightful sweet-cinnamon cookie ready in under 30 minutes. Added to the already spiced oatmeal is butter, sugar, milk, plus some extra vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and even some white chocolate chips. Simply melt the butter, sugar and milk together before adding the dry ingredients and forming into cookies. This recipe doesn’t even require chilling – just let them set over a few minutes and enjoy!
We love baking with protein powder, as it adds some good-for-you protein to an otherwise sugary-sweet snack. These birthday cake bites feature vanilla flavored protein with sugar or your favorite sweetener, flour, oil and water for a tasty treat you can have ready in 30 minutes. Simply combine ingredients in a bowl before forming into balls, rolling in sprinkles (optional) and chilling 15 minutes.
All the mixing and chilling in this recipe is worth the wait when the result is a pudding topped cheesecake. Filled within a Vanilla Wafer crust, the first cheesecake layer is made with cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream and vanilla. Once chilled, a layer of banana slices is added before being topped with a from-scratch pudding and sweet whipped cream. Garnished with extra crushed vanilla wafers, this recipe serves 10 and guarantees no leftovers.
They may be lemon slices, but we’re half tempted to call this “lemon fudge” for the dense and moist texture of this dessert. Starting with condensed milk and butter, crushed shortbread biscuits, coconut and lemon rind are combined before being added to the hot butter mix and poured into a lined baking sheet. After chilling until firm, the bars are topped with a simple lemon icing and served chilled. The perfect dessert for a hot day!
Using fresh or frozen blueberries, this pie is complete with a creamy filling and sweet but simple topping, all in a sweet graham cracker crust. Made with yogurt and cream cheese, the filling is made by processing blueberries, yogurt and sugar until smooth then combining with softened cream cheese. The result is a super-smooth cheesecake-like filling with blueberry taste in every bite. The blueberry sauce on top is an amazing touch that is easy to make and doubles as an awesome blueberry marmalade recipe you can enjoy on toast or muffins!
Nothing beats the nostalgic flavor of an orange creamsicle, and this recipe knows it. Made with sugar, butter, heavy cream, marshmallow cream, white chocolate and orange extract, this recipe splits the “batter” into 2 parts – one flavored with marshmallow and white chocolate and the other with orange extract. Swirled together like the ice cream itself, this creamy dream is ready after just 2 hours in the fridge.
