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.

Usually, Apollo is my photography buddy. Hobbes was my photography buddy for this blog shoot. I photograph food every week for the blog or Instagram. But something about this cookie shoot was really exciting.

With or without a kitty helper, if you bake regularly, most likely you already have the ingredients to make these cookies on hand. Whip up a batch tonight.

No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Course: Desserts

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Cover two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  • Combine the sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in a large saucepan. Stir occasionally while bringing to a boil. Boil for one minute.
  • Add the oatmeal, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Turn off the heat.
  • Using a spoon, drop the mixture in tablespoon-sized portions onto the wax paper-covered cookie sheets. There should be just enough room to fit all of the cookies onto two cookie sheets.
  • Put the cookies into the refrigerator to cool. Once the cookies have cooled, you can store them in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature.

Notes

The cookies keep well right on the cookie sheets in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature. They'll stay moist for 5-7 days.
I make my no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies with regular, creamy peanut butter. I recommend regular, not natural, peanut butter. Creamy or crunchy will work well.
Unless otherwise noted, I always bake with salted butter. I also always use soy milk for my recipes that call for milk. I have not tested them with any other type of milk.

    I love a good chocolate and PB combo! And these are even better because no oven is required! (Which is perfect for me because half the time I make cookies, I end up eating more batter than anything else!)

    Your pictures look so inviting!

  • Hanka March 15, 2017, 11:41 am

    Yummy, I must try them ASAP!

  • Wendy Sprous | Moments For "Me" March 15, 2017, 12:15 pm

    These are one of my favorite cookies. I learned to make them in Junior high school home economics class and found the recipe again about 2 years ago.

    Is there a substitute for peanut better in this recipe? Can’t stand it

    • Rose March 15, 2017, 10:01 pm

      I’ve never made this recipe with a peanut butter substitute. But I think any sort of nut butter with a similar consistency would work all right.

  • Danielle March 16, 2017, 5:55 am

    Pretty sure I would just eat that out of the pan… chocolate and PB is amazing!

  • colleen wool March 16, 2017, 12:20 pm

    These look delicious. I cant wait to try them.

  • Holly March 17, 2017, 5:00 am

    Peanut butter and chocolate is the best! and these look delicious!

  • Duni March 20, 2017, 10:57 am

    These look yummy! I wonder if they would work with chunky peanut butter? I always have a jar of that at home 🙂

    • Rose March 20, 2017, 3:27 pm

      Chunky peanut butter will definitely work! It will give the cookies even more texture. 🙂
