Today we’re making No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies and they are nothing less than absolutely delicious. Rich, creamy and no bake? Sign me up.

Growing up, I loved baking cookies with my mom or nana so this is something I enjoy doing with my girls. We will bake a sweet treat and cuddle up on the couch for movie night. Our favorite are these and my Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins. I think picking something to do with your kids is important. Baking sweet treats are mine and my girls “thing.” Well, I bake and they taste test and sometimes stir something together. My little helpers are everything and wouldn’t trade this time together for the world.

These no bake cookies are easy to make but sometimes people mess them up! Be sure to follow along while I take you step by step so you don’t mess up!

The great thing is, you probably have all these ingredients in your house right now. So, if you’re craving some cookies, let’s do it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Butter: I’ve found that it is best to use unsalted butter for this no bake recipe. When perfecting this recipe, I originally tried it with salted butter and there is definitely a difference in taste. Unsalted seems to be the best option and delivers the best results.

Monk Fruit Sweetener: You are able to use Monk Fruit from any brand you like but I prefer to use Splenda. It’s usually the first one I go to buy but there are other great options. If you’re not trying to make these low calorie, white granulated sugar is great in this recipe.

Unsweetened Almond Milk: Again, I prefer almond milk but you can use any milk! They all work great. Just remember to calculate the correct calories or measurements because my recipe will use the unsweetened almond milk.

Vanilla Extract: This is to bring the recipe a little sweetness! I love adding vanilla extract to give it a bit more flavor.

Oats: You can use rolled oats or quick oats. Either one works great but I used what I had in my cupboard – quick oats.

Peanut Butter: I like to use Jiffy peanut butter. It’s thick, creamy and provides great texture for the cookies. It also acts as the “glue” to hold everything together.

Directions:

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a saucepan, melt down butter, milk and sugar.
  3. Boil for 2 minutes while whisking.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until well combined.
  5. Next, add your oats in and stir.
  6. Then, take 1 tablespoon of cookie mixture and add to the parchment paper. Flatten slightly to make a circle.
  7. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before enjoying.
