No-Bake Log

Adina Elena Vladulescu
It’s hot outside and you're in the mood for a nice chocolatey dessert or a quick-fix for your sweet tooth but you don't want to overheat the house. Easy! Make this simple yet incredibly delicious no-bake log. It needs to be chilled overnight but he actual amount of work involved is only 20 minutes.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Chill Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 20 minutes
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 1 log


For the outside:

  • 300 g quick oats
  • 250 g pitted dates

For the inside:

  • 200 g walnuts
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 90 g maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Begin with the outside of the log. Place the dates in a food processor. Add a little water, just enough to cover the dates. Add the oats and blend until smooth. It should form a hard coherent dough that you will be able to spread out. If the dough is too sticky, you can add 1-2 tbsp of ground flax seeds.
  • Transfer the dough on a plastic wrap (or a beeswax wrap). Spread it to make a rectangle about 30 cm x 45 cm (a bit less than 1 cm thick).
  • For the inside, add the reminding ingredients into the food processor (walnuts, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract) and blend until creamy.
  • Spread the mixture on top of the dough.
  • Roll the dough on the long side to form your log. At this point you should have a log, 30cm long, with a spiral made of chocolate in the middle.
  • Roll the wrap around the log and close at both ends. Using your hands, shape the dough to make a nice cylinder. Make everything smooth and uniform. Let it harden in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next day!
