No Bake Coconut Praline Cookies are out of control delicious. The texture, the flavors, the sweet brown sugar flavor…it all comes together in a sweet no bake cookie!
So here we are…another recipe for not only brown food, but brown food that contains nuts. Who even am I right now? Last week I introduced you to Southern Pecan Bread, which is OMG GOOD. Today, we’re talking about another pecan recipe…the No Bake Coconut Praline Cookie.
Once upon a time I was all, NO NUTS EVER I HATE NUTS! And now, I’m a little more like, Hey Nuts, you’re good some of the time, just not in a chocolate chip cookie.
I’ve softened in my old age.
A trick in my recipe is that I like to use unsweetened coconut flakes. There is plenty of sweetness in the sugar mixture that binds the cookies, you don’t need the extra sweet in the coconut as well. However, if you are all aboard the sugar train, feel free to sub in sweetened flaked coconut for the unsweetened!
I also like to use a healthy sprinkle of sea salt to balance the sweetness. The recipe calls for 1 teaspoon, which is a great place to start, but you can always add a little extra if salty/sweet is your thing!
When they completely set they will be matte and opaque, but I can never seem to wait until they set up completely. I just love these SO so much!
For the FULL RECIPE for these No Bake Coconut Praline Cookies hop over to Imperial Sugar, whom I partnered with on this fantastic cookie. Their sugar is THE BEST!

Hope you enjoy!!
Amazing! Love your site. Everything always turns out great. This recipe is to die for. It’s like eating coconut pecan frosting( my all time favorite thing) bites. Keep up the good work
Thank you so much!!
Shelly, I have a question for you. The receipt calls for 2 cups of Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar. Is this regular Brown Sugar and is it packed or lose?
packed and Imperial is just a brand of sugar that I prefer! You can use any brown sugar 🙂
I had a complete recipe failure. The cookies never hardened. They just sat there in gluey blobs. I can scrape the blobs off of the parchment paper, will boiling again do any good?
That is so strange!! I have never had that happen at all. You can always refrigerate them to set them quicker? If you cooked the mixture a little longer it could help, yes, but you would need to bring it to a boil again, and repeat that step. Let me know what happens!
Huh, I’ve never made praline cookies. I’m very curious to try them, specially since they’re no bake.
Hi Shelly, this r cupe looks to die for! However…. can i sub the corn syrup to something else? Is glucose or molasses? I can probably order online but i know we cant get them in our local supermarket.
Thanks in advance 🙂
You could use honey as well!
OMG!! German chocolate cake without the cake! Everyone’s favorite part of it! I’m all in.
Can fine or course sea salt be used instead of sea salt flakes?
Hi Shelly! These look scrumptious, but I am not a fan of any type of coconut. Do you think I could successfully sub in Oatmeal? I DO love all things Praline/Brown Sugar.
Yes, you can sub oatmeal! Old fashioned oats, not quick oats.
These look amazing! I love pralines, but am not a huge fan of coconut. Do you think they would still work if I omit the coconut?
You can sub in old fashioned oats instead.
