Our Favorite No-Bake Cookies

½ cup cocoa
2 cups white sugar
½ cup butter
½ cup milk
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 ½ cups quick oatmeal (must be quick variety)
½ cup peanut butter

I think it's a good idea to double the recipe. They freeze great and you can eat as many as you like while you are making them. :)

Combine the first 6 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Pour in oats and peanut butter. Stir till well mixed and drop by preferred cookie size onto waxed paper.

I like to put my waxed paper onto pans so I can cool the cookies in the fridge and can put them into a tupperware faster.


  1. these are my absolute FAVORITEST cookies. YUMYUMYUMYUM =P

    I know that's not a word but it works in this situation. hahaha

  2. Oooo! Yoummy! It's been ages since I made those. Maybe that will fill my sweets craving tonight. Thanks for the post!

  3. Ohh... I LOOOOVE no-bakes!!! Do they go through the mail well? Hee hee!!

  4. YUM!! You must have the peanut butter in there... it makes them ten times better!!! when i come to visit some of these better be getting pulled from the freezer!

  5. thank you so much for posting this now I can get what is needed. Woo hoo! It's taken me years to find this simple recipe

  6. Looks good! Gotta make those really soon.

  7. Yummy! Those are my Favorite cookie, now that I read your post I'm drooling for some!

  8. Home mom- Glad I could help out! I really hope these are what you are looking for. They are my favorite.

  9. This reminds me....I still owe you a recipe. Here is the story. I used a girlfriends recipe and don't have it. I have e-mailed her and am still waiting for it....I want to make them again too, they where so yummy!

  10. hmm i think i wil try making these.. with modifications of course...

  11. Did you use chunky peanut butter? Is that what I'm seeing in the pictures, or is that the oatmeal? They look terrific. Anything you can freeze is awesome.

  12. Hanna- Yes, I used chunky peanut butter, it was extra chunky actually. I like it better with regular or smooth. What you are seeing is probably the oatmeal, but the larger chunks are peanuts.

    Just make sure to use quick oats. Regular don't work.

  13. cookies ... chocolate ... no bake ... my idea of a Friday night! Woohoo!! :)

  14. no bake cookies are my favorite and I haven't had any in years and years. brings back memories.
