“Peanut butter is like crack for women.” I read that statement in a book recently, and I tried to deny it, but it’s just too true – at least for me. (Especially when it’s in a no-bake cookie!)
There’s just something so satisfying about a spoonful of peanut butter! But more than that, it’s an invaluable ingredient in so many recipes. It makes things creamy and rich, don’t even mention the flavor!
And then there are other recipes, like this one, where peanut butter is the star ingredient.
Ah, these cookies. They’re everything a no-bake cookie should be. Smooth, fudgey, and easy to make. Not healthy no-bake cookies, these are an indulgent treat.
For those of you with dairy allergies, these cookies are easy to make dairy-free by switching coconut oil for the butter, and your favorite non-dairy milk for the milk – I used coconut milk personally, and couldn’t taste it.
I posted a picture of my second batch of these cookies on Instagram, and the next thing I know, I’m getting an email from my little brother, begging for the recipe! So maybe the whole “peanut butter is like crack” thing isn’t restricted to women after all. 😉
Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies
- Add butter, milk, and sugar to a sauce pan.
- Cook over medium heat while stirring until butter is melted.
- Bring to a boil, and boil for two minutes.
- Remove from heat.
- Stir in vanilla, and peanut butter.
- Quickly add the oatmeal, and stir.
- Drop by spoon full onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheets. (okay, honestly, I’ve found the parchment to be unnecessary. Sometimes cookies stick to the bare pan a little, but they always come off with a little twist.)
- Let cool.
