Such an easy and absolutely scrumptious no bake cookie recipe!

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk (I used almond milk.)
  • pinch of salt (if your butter is salted, you won't need this)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)*
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats (gluten-free, if needed)**
  1. Mix sugar, cocoa powder, butter, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Allow mixture to come to a boil for 1 minute. Once boiling, stir continuously.
  2. Take mixture off heat and add vanilla, salt, peanut butter, and oats. Mix well and drop by spoonfulls on wax paper. Let cool.
  3. I like my no bake cookies somewhat dry (not gooey), so I leave them out on wax paper for quite a while. If you like yours dry, don't store in the fridge. I store mine in a tin container for about a week. Don't worry they won't last a week.
Recipe Notes

*Using a natural peanut butter may change the consistency of the cookie. I used JIF.

**Quick-cooking oats give the cookies the best texture. Regular oats work fine, though.
