Baking with kids: 3 tasty no-bake cookie recipes to get stuck into this week

Baking with kids is just one of those activities we often dread because of the mess, but that once we get going, is just such an utterly lovely mum-child moment we wouldn't be without.

However, a lot of time, things take too long and they loose interest, leaving us there alone in our flour-covered kitchens waiting for the oven-timer to go off.

Well, guess what, mamas – these tasty little bakes are not only non-bake, meaning no baking time or oven even needed, but they are also pretty healthy, as far as treats are concerned.

Ready, stready, (no) bake:

1. Dark Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Dates are the key ingredient behind this recipe, which sweetens these cookie bars and binds its other inclusions—like old-fashioned oats, plain quinoa, and dark chocolate—together. Don't forget to top it all with sea salt, too.

2. Salted Caramel Coconut Macaroons 

Shredded coconut, melted caramels, and salted butter combine in this easy recipe, which can make two dozen macaroons when you're finished. The dipped-chocolate bottoms may be our favorite part since it balances out the sprinkle of sea salt on the top.

3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies

If you have 15 minutes to spare in your schedule, then you have enough time to make this recipe. Pretzels, unsweetened cocoa, old-fashioned oats, and peanut butter combine to make a salty-sweet cookie that is too good to resist.
