No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

I love no bake cookies. Easy. Easy. Easy. So easy in fact, that if it weren’t for the scary boiling sugar, I’m pretty sure a five year old could make them. You can add anything (well pretty much) you like, they are almost fool-proof and they are fantastic for a quick sweet tooth fix because they take all of about 10 minutes to whip up from beginning to end. They set up quickly so they can go from wax paper to mouth in about 2.5 minutes. Or…pan to mouth if you don’t mind a few seared taste buds.

This recipe is adapted from My Soul Is The Sky. I think I ran across Melissa’s blog while looking at someone’s Pinterest page. She has a little bit of everything. She posts about life, hair, makeup, and food. All the things us gals love!

No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

2 Cups Sugar (I used white but dark brown would be delicious too)

1/4 Cup Dairy Free Butter

1/2 Cup Almond Milk

1 Cup Organic Chunky Peanut Butter

1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

3 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats

In a large saucepan (I used my dutch oven), mix sugar, butter, and milk; bring to a full boil over medium heat. (Melissa says a full rolling boil = large bubbles rising to the surface that can’t be stirred down).

Boil for one minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until peanut butter is melted. Stir in oats and working quickly, drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment.

  1. These cookies look gorgeous and I love how you photographed them. It’s hard to believe they don’t need to be baked. I’ll try these during the school holidays as I know my kids would love them xx

  2. I agree with Charlie. These cookies look so very good. Your photography could not have presented them in a more appealing way, April. They wouldn’t last a day around here and that’s without Max’s help. 🙂
