Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bakes


A few years ago, a co-worker put in a request for no-bake cookies for their birthday. Given how I am always up for a challenge, I went online and started researching what a no-bake cookie was all about. I tried countless recipes finally settling on this one. Whether you are baking for a birthday or just because, these are a real winner!


Yield: 28 cookies

Oven: N/A

Preparation time: 15 minutes 

Cook Time: 4 minutes + 1 hour refrigeration

Add To Cart

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

3 tablespoons cocoa powder, best quality possible

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup whole or low-fat milk, room temperature

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats


1.   In a medium size saucepan over medium heat, add sugar, cocoa powder, butter, milk, peanut butter, and vanilla. While stirring, allow to cook until smooth and evenly combined, approximately 2 – 4 minutes.

2.   Remove from heat, add oats and stir to combine.

3.   On parchment lined baking sheets, use a tablespoon to evenly portion dough into 2 tablespoon size portions.

4.   Place in the refrigerator until cold and firm, at least 1 hour.


Kitchen Note:  If time is of the essence, place the baking sheet in the freezer before adding the cookies on top.
