No Bake Oatmeal, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

Are you looking for a quick and easy recipe no-bake cookie recipe? I didn’t think I was a fan of the no-bake chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal cookies – but after I made them (I’m not sure if this recipe was different, but let me tell you…) OUT OF THIS WORLD! Bonus… you don’t even bake them!

Once you mix up the batter, you spoon onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or silicone baking sheet), let sit 30 minutes and they are done!

No Bake Oatmeal, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

Yield: 2-3 dozen cookies  – these take approximately 45 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

½ cup unsalted butter

1.5 cups sugar*

½ cup whole milk (can use 2%)

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

_____________________________________

½ cup smooth peanut butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

_____________________________________

3 cups Old Fashioned Oats*

In 4qt (large) saucepan, add the butter, sugar, milk, cocoa and salt.

Bring to boil (stirring it together). Boil 1 minute. Then remove from heat…

Add peanut butter and vanilla, stirring to incorporate

Stir in oatmeal.

Once all ingredients have been combined, drop by teaspoonfuls onto Parchment lined cookie sheet. (I used a silicone baking mat on one cookie sheet, and didn’t use parchment and it worked ok, but it would be easier to use Parchment Paper).

Let cool 30 minutes to set. You can then store them in an airtight container at room temp (or fridge) for up to 2 weeks. I cannot imagine them lasting one week, they are that good…

This recipe was adapted from the recipe by the Brown Eyed Baker (BrownEyedBaker.com).

*What I changed: I added less sugar (1 ½ cups vs. 2 cups) and I used Old Fashioned Oats instead of Quick Cooking Oats, as called for in the recipe. Very minor changes.

Beyond delicious!

NOTE: These are excellent and perfect for get-togethers – but beware if dogs are nearby, dogs cannot eat dark chocolate…
