No bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies made in one pan on top of your stove. No oven required for these sweet treats.
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 18
  • ½ cup butter (4 ounces)
  • ½ cup milk (whole or 2%)
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar (14 ounces)
  • 4 TBL unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 cups quick oatmeal
  1. Melt butter with milk in saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add sugar and cocoa and cook until boiling, stirring to make sure that cocoa is incorporated without lumps. Boil one minute.
  3. Remove pan from heat, add peanut butter, vanilla and salt. Stir until peanut butter is melted and mixed in.
  4. Add quick oats.
  5. Mix together then drop by spoonfuls or small ice cream scoop onto parchment or waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
  6. Cool and enjoy!
Be sure to use Quick Oats. I tried using rolled oats, but didn't like the results. They were crumbly and dry.

I use creamy Jiff Peanut Butter for the best results.

Work quickly once you add the oatmeal to the chocolate mixture. The cookies will thicken once the mixture starts to cool.
