Mini Rice Cooker No Bake Cookies

No bake cookies are my daughter’s personal favorite cookie. When asked to choose between chocolate chip, frosted sugar cookies, or no bake cookies, my girl will pick no bake cookies 9 times out of 10 (with the sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies fighting for their time in the spotlight).

Some nights, I make a small-batch of cookies for my family, and we enjoy the treat instead of actually eating a healthy dinner. A small-batch divides evenly in our house, so no one has to bargain or bribe for the extra cookie.

But sometimes, I like being sneaky. Sometimes, I want cookies just for myself. On these days, I need an even smaller batch that I can easily hide the evidence of any baking done while my daughter is at school. Hence the creation of Dash Mini Rice Cooker No Bake Cookies.

Go Ahead. Make Them Just for You.

One of the great things about no bake cookies is that you don’t have to preheat the oven. They’re a great choice for a summer dessert when you don’t want to heat your entire kitchen. And since you can make everything on the stove, you don’t have to worry about washing multiple mixing bowls and cookie sheets.

So my challenge this week was to take an already beloved cookie and make it even easier. And I’d like to think I succeeded.

These Mini Rice Cooker No Bake Cookies only heat the smallest space. Better still, the rice cooker bowl fits perfectly in the dishwasher for even less cleanup. The small batch means you can indulge in a single large cookie for yourself, or you can split it into three small cookies and share it with two other lucky people in your family. Everyone wins! (Unless you have four people in your family and you have to pick favorites).

  • 37.4 Grams White Granulated Sugar (3 Tablespoons)
  • 15 Grams Milk (1 Tablespoon)
  • 14 Grams Butter (1 Tablespoon)
  • 3.5 Grams Cocoa Powder (1.5 Teaspoons)
  • 30 Grams Peanut Butter (2 Tablespoons)
  • 30 Grams Oats, Old-Fashioned (1/3 Cup)


  • In the bowl of the rice cooker, stir the sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa powder until well combined.
  • Turn on the rice cooker. Bring the chocolate mixture to a boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Remove the bowl of the rice cooker from the heat. Stir in the peanut butter and the oats.
  • Scoop three cookies onto a plate and chill in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.


No bake cookies are all about timing. If you boil too long, the cookies turn out dry and crumbly. If you don’t boil for long enough, the cookies never set. I know people who like both types. I personally prefer that sweet spot in the middle, and I’ve found that 30 seconds is just right. You may need to play around with the timing of your device to achieve your desired consistency.
The Dash mini rice cooker cooks by weight. If you flip the switch to cook and it keeps flipping back to cook warm, you may need to use an oven mitt or hot pad to gently press on the bowl of the cooker to mimic the weight of rice cooking. Do not simply hold down the switch or you could damage your cooker.
