No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookies have always been a favorite in my family!  They’re the perfect mix of peanut butter and chocolate, and they’re sweet, but not too sweet!

The peanut butter and oats makes these cookies quite filling because they fill us with two of our main macronutrients, fats and carbs, so the good news with these is that you can’t eat too many.

They definitely don’t leave you with a sugary high either… super great for everyone!

Most people, so I’ve heard, have experienced these cookies from their moms making them when they came home from school.  Although my mom made absolutely delicious foods for us after school that I still love today, I actually happened upon these cookies in Jr. High School when I really started getting into baking and cooking.

My family, especially my brother, went bonkers over these!  We’d make 2-3 dozen or so and they’d be gone that same day!  The first time I made them for my husband the same thing happened!  These are definitely a winner in anyone’s book.

The best thing about these cookies are they’re SUPER EASY to make!  You can make them in one pot and in under 30 minutes.

Basically, you just boil everything except the peanut butter, vanilla, and oats.  Once boiling, remove it from the heat, then stir in the remaining three ingredients.

Drop them onto parchment paper or a rubber baking sheet, let set for 10 min, and voila! they’re ready to eat!

However, my favorite thing to do is to eat the batter while it’s still warm.  Ohhh the chocolatey gooey goodness!

Give ’em a try and let me know how they turned out for you!  They’re sure to be a winner!

Have a variation?  Let me know about it!
