Easy No Bake Cookies

This is by far the BEST No-Bake Cookies recipe and only requires a few simple ingredients Loaded with peanut butter, oats, and cocoa powder, these cookies are perfect for a super simple dessert!
We love making no-bake treats like our popular No-Bake Krispies, Peanut Butter Balls, Chocolate Coconut Balls, No Bake Reese’s Fudge, and Oreo Balls.

Ingredients You Will Need:

Oats: The texture is way better using quick oats compared to old-fashioned oats. However, you can use either one.

Butter: I normally use unsalted butter in recipes, but in this one I use salted butter. If you do not have salted butter on hand, you can use unsalted and then add in 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Milk: Whole milk or 2% is recommended.

Peanut Butter: You can use crunchy or cream for this recipe. However, I do not recommend using natural peanut butter.

Cocoa Powder
Vanilla Extract
