15 Easy No-Bake Desserts

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions no-bake desserts? I think of classic no-bake cookies every time.

But, there are a lot of easy no-bake dessert recipes that I often forget (or don’t know) about. Thank goodness there’s a roundup for that …

All 15 of these easy no-bake desserts require one thing—not turning on your oven in the summer. I’ve included a variety of desserts in this roundup:

  • Cookies
  • Pies
  • Cake
  • Truffles

Let’s get to it!

If you’re a peanut butter cup fan (or an absolute fanatic, like me), you will love this no-bake peanut butter pie with chocolate crust.

My first and favorite no-bake dessert will always be no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. Have you ever tried to eat just one? It’s impossible.

If you’re looking for a vegan and grain-free option, this no-bake cookie recipe is made with sliced almonds instead of oats.

Rice Krispie treats are a popular dessert (like no-bake cookies) and super easy to make. And, Keely dialed it up a notch with this giant bakery-style Rice Krispie treats recipe.

Here’s a short step-by-step recipe video:

Cheesecake is always a good idea, in my opinion. This no-bake caramel apple cheesecake is a decadent treat that would taste even better in the the cooler months.

As a “chocolate lover for life,” I would end up eating this entire no-bake chocolate silk pie in two days if I made it. Just saying …

Here’s a unique flavor profile for you: Matcha no-bake mini cheesecakes. These delicious individual-size cheesecakes have Matcha Green Tea Pocky in the crust. Have you tried Pocky?

If you didn’t already know, A Beautiful Mess has a thing for recipes that have pumpkin in them … and so do I! Emma’s no-bake pumpkin oatmeal cookies are a must-have anytime.

I can’t think of a better way to eat cake without turning on the oven. Get ready for this one … it’s a no-bake s’mores icebox cake (yum!). This dessert would be perfect for a summer party.

If regular s’mores sound better to you, check out Elsie’s ultimate s’mores setup to make them extra fancy.

I have a thing for cherry pie filling, and I can’t think of a better time to admit it. It’s very nostalgic, don’t you think? This no-bake cherry cheesecake uses fresh cherries, but it totally reminds me of it.

This recipe is super easy (the filling can be made in a blender) and you’ll be surprised when you find out what the crust is made of!

I present to you, the best (and most eye-catching) no-bake banana cream pie on the planet.

No-bake chocolate Oreo truffles are another dessert that seem impossible to put down once you’ve eaten one. They’re rich, easy to make, and one of my go-to’s if I want to make a something sweet for a crowd.

If you’re looking for a delicious cheesecake version of truffles, we have a recipe for no-bake cherry cheesecake truffles for you (they’re made with the pie filling I mentioned earlier!).

Emma’s no-bake key lime pie is everything I love about a sweet and citrusy filling inside a golden brown graham cracker (or vanilla wafer) crust. Add this recipe to your list, ASAP.

Similar to matcha cheesecakes I mentioned in this post, Laura’s no-bake strawberry cheesecakes are individually sized (they’re made inside ring molds) but they don’t have any dairy or refined sugar in them.

The last recipe on my list is another classic during the holidays, and you either love it or hate it. Haha. I love no-bake pies, (especially this no-bake pumpkin pie) because you can make them the night before if needed. Easy, delicious, and efficient.

Happy no-baking, friends! xo, Jacki
