No Bake Cookies


My husband grew up on this recipe for No Bake Cookies. It is also a staple at our house for my children. They are quick and easy to make and are great for a quick treat or after school snack. I feel like my kids are getting something somewhat healthy because of the peanut butter and oats. The taste of the chocolate with the peanut butter in these cookies makes them a favorite.

No Bake Cookies

1/2 cup butter
3 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk

Put all of these ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add the following:

1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, we do creamy)
3 cups quick oats
1 tsp vanilla

Mix until combined and drop spoonfuls onto wax paper. Allow time to cool. Enjoy!

  • Living out here in the country`we call them “cow patties!!!” LOL

  • I just finished making these cookies and they are great.. just one thing though I made them with 1+2/3 cup sugar and they are perfect. I think 3 cups is a lot of sugar. :) other than that really delicious

  • I love these cookies!! Just FYI, I only use 2 cups of sugar and they are just as delicious!! I noticed you talked about them being somewhat healthy with Oats & Peanut butter…. now you can use a whole cup less sugar!

  • Oh my goodness. These are amazing. So easy and so good!! Great recipe!

  • Just wanted to say, I LOVE these cookies! Growing up my sister dubbed them “cat poop cookies” which, apparently, no one else called them!

  • I love making them this way. We have this same recipe, and they’re so good!

    Did you know you can make peanut butter no bakes by omitting the cocoa – it ends up being a totally different cookie and tastes delicious!

  • Ooooh, we love no bake cookies, but have never made them with PB, yum!

  • You must have read my mind. I was looking for a recipe for these a couple of days ago. Thank you!

  • I ditto above when I make these cookies they last all of 2 minutes.. I just can’t resist lol.

  • LOVE these, they are so delicious…and dangerous! I try not to make them too often:)
