No-Bake Granookies

I love a good ice-cream sandwich.  I mean who doesn’t love ice-cream sandwiched between two cookies, but more about that in a minute.  First, I must tell you about Granookies.  Gra-what?

GRANOOKIE [grah-noo-kee] noun A cookie made with granola.


HEAB’s No-Bake Granookies (Inspired by the raw pie crust I made in this post.)


  • 1 cup Love Grown Foods Simply Oats granola
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in water for one hour and drained
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp Nama Shoyu (Raw unpasteurized soy sauce. Regular soy sauce works too.)
  • freshly grated nutmeg


  • Combine all ingredients in food processor.
  • Place cookie dough ball on a piece of parchment or wax paper and flatten with hand.
  • Use cookie cutters or a knife to cut out your cookies.
  • Store in fridge.


The Granookies turned out great and were really easy to make.  They’re soft but contain a little crunch from the granola, and I love their fresh lemon flavor.  Now about those ice-cream sandwiches…

Every single one of my Granookies got sandwiched together with vanilla bean ice-cream and put in the freezer.  AMAZING!
