Classic No-bake Cookies Recipe

Simply adding a few ingredients makes these Classic No-Bake Cookies easy to create. These peanut butter, oat, and cocoa powder cookies make a simple treat!


SERVINGS: 30 COOKIES – 1/2 cup (115 grams) butter (sliced into pieces) – 2 cups (400 grams) granulated sugar – 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk – 1/4 cup (20 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder – 1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 3 cups (300 grams) quick-cooking oat


Step 1

Gather and measure your ingredients before starting. Parchment two big baking sheets and set aside.

Step 2

Stir the butter, sugar, milk, and unsweetened cocoa powder in a large saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts and everything is mixed. 

Step 3

Set a timer and boil the mixture for 60 seconds, stirring occasionally.

Step 4

Combine peanut butter and vanilla extract after removing from heat. Add the oats and toss until they are coated and well blended.

Step 5

I use a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop to drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheets. Serve after cooling for 20–30 minutes and enjoy!
