No Bake Cookie Recipe

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
YIELD 24 cookies


  • 1 and 1/2 cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk ,whole or skim
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick/115 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (170 g) creamy peanut butter (not natural)
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats (for gf version use gf oats)


  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, milk, butter, cocoa powder, and salt, over medium heat, until butter has melted. Bring to a boil, and allow it boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. Add vanilla extract and peanut butter, and mix until combined. Place oats in a large bowl, and pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats, then stir until combined.
  3. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop (I use this size for most of my cookies), drop cookies onto the prepared baking sheets. If the cookies are flat and you prefer them thick, let the mixture cool slightly. Flatten or shape into cookies if you like. Refrigerate until firm. Store cookies in the fridge for up to a week.
