Peanut Butter Chocolate No-Bake Cookie Recipe

These No-Bake Cookies are always a household favorite.

Yield:  about 60 cookies, depending on size.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use whole)
  • 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunch – your preference, I use crunchy)
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt (1/8 tsp)


  • Waxed paper (if you don’t have wax paper or parchment, you can very lightly grease a baking sheet)



Prep your area where you will allow your cookies to cool by laying a couple sheets of wax paper or line a couple baking sheets.
I personally lay a couple sheets of waxed paper on the kitchen table.

In a medium saucepan, mix: 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1 stick of butter, and 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa power.
Bring mixture to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Allow to boil 1 minute then remove from heat.

Add 3 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats, 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the heated mixture.
Stir to combine.

Drop teaspoonfuls (Tablespoons for big cookies) of heated cookie mixture onto the prepared waxed paper or lined baking sheets.
Allow cookies to set at room temperature until cooled and hardened (about 30 minutes or so).


Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days (mine are usually gone on the first day, kids love them).
