Is there any better flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter? It’s hard to believe that there could be a more delicious pairing. However, adding oatmeal to the mix is pretty perfect, too. No-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies would be worth a bit of effort. But they come together in a matter of minutes without even turning on the oven.
Jake’s paternal grandma made these no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies for decades. She was kind enough to send me her recipe. Now I’ve been making her recipe for over a decade. I’ve never added or swapped out an ingredient or attempted any other sort of variation. It’s one of those simple recipes that’s so good it doesn’t need any improvement.
The no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies are gluten-free. Gluten-free doesn’t mean healthy. But it does mean they’re a great option for a little indulgence if you’re eating gluten-free or you need a last-minute dessert for a classroom party or other social gathering with people in attendance who are eating gluten-free.
