Some days my sweet tooth calls and it’s time to bake! When I want something easy and quick, these no-bake cookies are always top of the list. I usually always have the ingredients on hand, and they are very scrumptious! Another plus is they make several cookies, so there is always enough to share with your family, friends, and neighbors!
I shared the cookies before I could take a photo of final product. This unfortunately is a theme in our household.
One of my favorite recipes is from Brown Eyed Baker. You are welcome to get the recipe below, or view it here at Brown Eyed Baker’s site: No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Putter Oatmeal Cookies
Makes two dozen
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
- 2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of whole or 2% milk
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 3 cups of quick-cooking oats (I used old-fashioned oats)
Add the first five ingredients (through the salt) to a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a rapid boil and let boil for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth, then stir in the oats.
Use a medium cookie scoop (or 2 tablespoonfuls), drop onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Let cool until set, about 30 minutes.
Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refridgerator) for up to two weeks.
