Chocolate Peanut Putter No Bake Cookies

These Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies are made with pantry staples and made in a pot on the stove. Perfect for the hot summer months these cookies are made quickly then chilled in the fridge.

  • Total Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes
  • Yield: 30 1x


Units Scale
  • 266 grams (1 1/3 Cups) Granulated/ Caster Sugar
  • 4oz (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter
  • 4 Tablespoons Natural or Dutch Process Cocoa Powder, I use Bensdorp Dutch Cocoa Powder
  • 4oz (1/2 Cup) Milk, any
  • 300 grams (3 Cups) Quick or Rolled Oats
  • 6oz (3/4 Cup) Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extraxt
  • 85 grams (1/2 Cup) Chocolate Chips, I use Callebaut Chocolate Callets


  1. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat liners and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan mix together the sugar, butter, cocoa powder, and milk. Once all melted together let come to a slight boil for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Remove pot from heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, mix until the peanut butter has completely melted.  Gently fold in the oats. Let the mixture sit for 5-8 minutes so the oats can soak up the liquid.
  4. Add chocolate chips and stir to combine, they will probably melt but that is just fine! Use a medium cookie scoop to place cookies on prepared baking pan. Use the back of a spoon to gently flatten the cookies. Let the cookies cool for at least 1 hour, you can place the tray in the fridge for 30 minutes. 
  5. Store leftover cookies in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
