1. No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Truffles 

Don’t let these delicate, elegant truffles fool you. They look prim and mild, but they pack a ton of decadent, weak-in-the-knees flavor. 

They may be small, but they’re mighty. Each bite is infused with chocolate, coconut cream, blueberries, and more. 

For a no-bake dessert with only six ingredients, they’re insanely delicious. They’re sweet and rich with pops of bright tanginess from the blueberries. If they don’t make your mouth water, nothing will. 

2. No-Bake Matcha Mint Grasshopper Pies in Jars

Grasshopper pies were a favorite sweet treat of mine growing up. The combination of chocolate and mint always made me feel happy and refreshed. 

These vegan, gluten-free, no-bake versions are just as fantastic. They’re sweet, fresh, minty, and chocolatey. Plus, they come in adorable single-serve jars for extra convenience. 

3. Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake

It doesn’t have to be autumn to enjoy pumpkin cheesecake. I can eat these silky smooth cakes any time of year. As a bonus, they’re no-bake and paleo-friendly. 

You get all the great taste and texture of a regular pumpkin cheesecake. But this version is much healthier.

4. No-Bake Brookie Bars 

What are brookie bars? Well, they’re half brownie, half cookie, and 110% delicious. They have the thick, fudgy consistency of brownies. They also have actual brownie crumbles mixed in!

But there’s also sweet cashew cream and a chickpea cookie dough base. It’s like biting into rich raw cookie dough studded with brownies. It’s divine. 

5. Vegan Posset  

Vegan posset is a luscious, creamy dessert made without any animal products. 

Traditionally, posset is a British dessert prepared with cream, sugar, and citrus juice. For the vegan version, use coconut cream and organic cane sugar. Plus limes and strawberries.

Then cook it, chill it, and let it set. It’s a delightful treat suitable for vegans and non-vegans alike.

6. Vegan Lemon Bars 

Do you love the bright, sweetly tart flavor of lemon bars? If so, you’ll go nuts for this vegan alternative. They have the same great taste, but their texture is even better. 

They’re ridiculously creamy and will almost melt in your mouth. And the crumbly cashew and coconut crust complements the creamy layer perfectly. 

7. Frozen Yogurt Bark 

Crunchy, colorful bark is one of my favorite desserts. The vegan variety is no exception. It’s quick and easy to make, and it tastes fantastic. 

You need vegan yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut, and berries. It comes together in about 10 minutes and makes enough for 20 large pieces of bark. 

Plus, it’s covered in strawberries and blueberries for a gorgeous red, white, and blue color scheme. It’s the ideal choice for any patriotic holiday.

8. Edible Vegan Cookie Dough 

Despite everyone saying it’s unhealthy, most still love eating raw cookie dough. I’m not judging. I do it, too, and way more often than I should. 

But what if I told you there was a way to eat raw cookie dough that doesn’t risk salmonella poisoning? It’s true! This vegan cookie dough is totally safe and totally edible. 

And yes, it tastes totally scrumptious. 

9. Vegan No-Bake Peanut Butter Magic Bars 

These decadent, over-the-top bars look anything but healthy. But in reality, they aren’t that bad for you. They’re vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and contain no artificial ingredients.

They use healthy ingredients like cashews and oats instead of flour. (And maple syrup instead of sugar.) Each bar has fewer than 200 calories and contains 4 grams of protein.

10. Vegan Banana Pudding 

Single-serve banana pudding in a jar was the vegan treat I didn’t know I needed. It’s quick and easy and requires just five ingredients.

It tastes just like old-fashioned banana pudding, too! 

11. Fudgy Carob Pie (No-Bake) 

No. That’s not a sinfully delicious chocolate pie you’re seeing. But it is a sinfully delicious carob pie, which is just as good. 

If you aren’t familiar with carob, you should be. It’s a wonderful substitute for cocoa powder that tastes and looks very similar. It’s even sweeter and less bitter than traditional chocolate.

Don’t believe me? Just try this fudgy carob pie. It’ll have you singing carob’s praises after a single bite.

12. No-Bake Mini Key Lime Vegan Cheesecakes 

These tiny cheesecakes aren’t too much of an indulgence, and they taste like heaven. So you don’t have to feel guilty about eating a few extras.

They’re bright, tangy, and sweet, and you’ll love the crunchy Oreo crust. These little treats are hard to beat. 

13. No-Bake Brownies

No-bake brownies sound like a total myth, but fortunately for us, they aren’t! They’re thick, rich, fudgy, and mouth-wateringly incredible. 

And they’re also dairy-, gluten-, egg-free, paleo-friendly, vegan, and healthy! Healthy brownies?! Sign me up, please! 

Oh, and did I mention they only take about 20 minutes to make? Yeah. These are quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite desserts. 

14. White Chocolate Lemon Cream Tarts

These stunning tarts are elegant and lovely. They’re perfect for special occasions. They look like something you’d find at an artisanal bakery, but you can make them at home. It only takes about 20 minutes. Despite how incredible they look, they aren’t challenging to make. All you’ll need is a food processor and a few tart pans. 

You can do everything else by hand. There’s no baking, cooking, or even microwaving required.

15. No-Bake Vegan Pecan Pie Bars

Is there anything better than the crunchy, ooey-gooey deliciousness of pecan pie? It’s definitely near the top of the list of “good things.”

So are these vegan-friendly, no-bake pecan pie bars. They feature the same great taste and chewiness as real pecan pie. But these are sweetened naturally with dates. 

They also have more protein than the real thing. (Hooray for plant-based protein!) 

16. No-Bake Peanut Butter S’mores Cookies

S’mores are always a treat, but these cookies take them to a new level. They’re s’mores with peanut butter, coconut, and oats. They’re richer, chewier, and even tastier than the originals.

17. No-Bake Carrot Cake Energy Balls

Carrot cake is a beloved dessert, but it can be tricky. And, as I’ve already mentioned, no one wants to go to all that trouble when it’s hot outside. 

So what do you do if you’re craving carrot cake in the middle of the summer? Make these simple, 10-minute carrot cake balls, of course!

They have all the sweetly spiced flavor of a multi-tiered carrot cake. But these are low-fat, low-calorie, and no-bake. And at only 10 net carbs per ball, they’re pretty low-carb-friendly, too.

18. Cranberry Almond Energy Bites (No-Bake) 

Prefer cranberries and almonds to carrot cake? These energy bites might be more your style. They’re sweetly tart, nutty, and tropical.

And you only need seven ingredients to make them. 

19. Vegan Strawberry Trifle 

Lovely, layered desserts always look pretty on any dessert table. Vegan strawberry trifle is a prime example of that. 

It’s light, fruity, and refreshing. Also, its stunning red and white appearance makes it a real head-turner. It tastes like non-vegan strawberry trifle but with a slightly tropical flair. 

Don’t worry, though. The coconut cream pairs beautifully with the bright strawberries and vegan graham crackers. 

20. No-Bake Oat & Hemp Seed Cookies

These beautifully dark, seven-ingredient cookies are phenomenal. They feature the chewy texture of oatmeal cookies. They also have loads of chocolate and peanut butter flavor. 

They contain hemp hearts for extra nutrients and are sweetened with maple syrup. 

21. No-Bake Dark Chocolate Nut Bars 

Dark chocolate and nuts are two things that always go well together. That’s what you’ll get with these yummy bars. They’re nutty, chocolatey, and just a little bit salty. 

Think of them as dark chocolate Snickers bars with hazelnuts instead of peanuts. There’s also peanut butter instead of caramel and nougat. 

Okay, so they’re not totally like Snickers bars, but they look like them!

22. Peach Tart

Here’s another striking tart recipe that’s easier to make than it seems. It features peaches’ bright, tangy, sweet flavor on a cashew and oat crust. 

The filling is super smooth and boasts a pretty peach color. This tart will surely be a hit with or without the optional berries on top. 

23. Persimmon Chocolate Pudding 

Despite how it looks, that’s not chocolate pudding. It’s persimmon pudding with a fourth cup of cocoa powder mixed in. 

It features the same rich, robust flavor as authentic chocolate pudding. Luckily, though, it’s much healthier. And you can make it from scratch with only three ingredients. 

24. No-Bake Vegan Granola Cups

These no-bake granola cups are cuteness overload. And yes, they taste as good as they look! They combine peanut butter, vegan chocolate, granola, maple syrup, and seeds. 

They’re like the crunchy, chewy granola bars you can buy from the store, only better. They’re also much healthier.

25. No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Tart 

As much as I love all the desserts on this list, the tarts are my favorite.

So I thought I’d end with my favorite tart of all: the no-bake vegan chocolate tart. It’s layer upon layer of chocolate and over-the-top decadent. 

However, like all the other tarts on this list, it’s surprisingly simple to make. You need only eight ingredients and about 15 minutes. (Plus another 2 hours of chill time.) 

You won’t believe how easily this recipe comes together, and neither will anyone else.
