No Bake Cookies

In just 10 minutes and a couple of pantry staples, you'll have perfect No-Bake Cookies ready to devour! And I'll share with you my #1 tip for getting them to turn out perfectly every single time!


  • 3 Cups Old Fashion Oatmeal
  • 1/2 Cup  Creamy Peanut Butter*
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla


  1. In a large bowl combine oatmeal and peanut butter.
  2. Combine sugar, cocoa, butter, milk, and vanilla in a medium saucepan on the stove.
  3. Turn stove on medium heat. Stir to combine everything.
  4. As the butter melts, the chocolate mixture will start to combine. Keep stirring to make sure it doesn't burn or scorch on the bottom of the pan. This will take around 5-7 minutes before the next step begins.
  5. Once you see a couple bubbles in the middle of the pan, start the timer for ONE full minute (exactly). You do not have to stir during this time.
  6. Remove from heat immediately after the timer goes off and pour the hot cocoa mixture in the oatmeal bowl and mix well until peanut butter is melted and all ingredients are mixed well.
  7. Scoop quickly onto wax or parchment paper (ice cream scoop works best - but a large spoon can b used as well) and let cool for 10 minutes to set up.
  8. ENJOY!


  • *Natural peanut butter should not be used in this recipe
  • The secret is to wait for those first couple bubbles in the middle of the pan, then start your timer for one minute. Remove from the heat immediately after the one minute is up. This will result in perfect, shiny, set up no bake cookies every single time.
