No Bake Cookies – Sweet Satisfaction in a Pinch
Posted on April 4, 2012
We’ve all had them.
They’re really no big deal, but they are quite tasty.
A simple cookie, made from simple ingredients that most of us always have available in our pantry.
Sometimes I need a little reminder that when I head to the kitchen to make something,
it doesn’t have to be a long, drawn out, adventure that requires 30 ingredients and five hours of my time.
The simple things in life are enjoyable too!
Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Oats – No Bake Cookies
*Makes about 20 cookies, depending on how small or large you like them
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
4 1/2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Butter (I use Earth Balance Soy Free)
1/2 Cup Almond Milk (I use Almond Breeze Unsweetened)
1 Cup Chunky Peanut Butter (I use organic)
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
3 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
Place a piece of waxed paper on the counter. In a medium saucepan add the sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk. While stirring, bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and stir until combined. Add vanilla and oats and combine thoroughly.
Working quickly, drop mixture by the spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to cool.

My husbands kids would love these, they are peanut butter fiends! In fact thgey could probably make them themselves!! c
They’re incredibly easy. I’m pretty sure you could train a monkey to make them. 😉
Well, call me Cheetah! These look soo good and having both chocolate and peanut butter in them, I’d better have people to give them to or I’ll eat the whole batch in an evening.
Great recipe April! I love how easy it is 🙂
I love no-bake cookies.. they’re actually one of my favorites.. I love your version of them!
I love the list of ingredients in these. What beautiful little cluster cookies. Peanut and butter and chocolate – such a winning combination. Have a happy Easter xx
As much as I love these cookies, their simplicity is a danger to me for sure 😉

I know just what you mean. They’re sitting on my dining room table in a glass covered cake plate. Every single time I walk by I think, “Ohhh…I NEED one of those!!”
Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
Nice! I’ve actually never made no-bake cookies before, but I’m excited to try it!
Easy, easy, easy. And you can anything you like into them. 🙂
I’m glad that you liked one of my comments. My daughter was a celiac baby and became a colitis sufferer as a teen. She is an adult and still living with the problem. I have been trying for years to tell her doctor about her condition as a baby. Mothers never know the right thing, but recently she did mention it to him and thought that a gluten free life might not be a bad thing to try. She seems to have responded to it in a very good way. I will be following you and hopefully, I will get her to do it too.
