Classic No-Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies are such a nostalgic childhood favorite! This recipe has that classic chocolate peanut butter flavor combo and the perfect chewy, fudgy texture. And I’m pretty sure they’re the easiest cookies on the planet to make!

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Flavors
This is almost the exact same recipe I had when I was younger but I did add in a little bit more cocoa and peanut butter here, because why not?? It’s a flavor combo I never can resist!


5 mins 40 mins 45 mins



No Bake Cookies ingredients butter sugar milk cocoa powder quick oats peanut butter vanilla


  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups (400 grams) granulated sugar
  •  1/2 cup (120ml) milk
  • 1/4 cup (20 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (300 grams) quick-cooking oats



  • Before getting started, make sure to gather all of your ingredients and measure everything out. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the butter, sugar, milk, and unsweetened cocoa powder in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, making sure to stir often until the butter is melted and everything is well combined. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and allow to boil for 60 seconds (make sure to set a timer!) stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until fully combined. Stir in the oats and mix until all of the oats are coated with the mixture and everything is well combined.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets (I like to use a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop). Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes, serve, and enjoy!


I use a two tablespoon cookie scoop when measuring out the cookies and usually get about 30-32 cookies.
