Growing up, my mom always made these classic chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies. They have a moist and chewy texture full of rich peanut butter and decadent chocolate and are an oh-so-tasty treat.
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER NO-BAKE COOKIES INGREDIENTS
3 cups quick-cooking oats
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
2 cups of sugar
½ cup of milk
¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
SUBSTITUTIONS FOR NO BAKE COOKIES WITH PEANUT BUTTER
NUT-FREE: Substitute sunflower seed butter for the peanut butter if you want to make these cookies nut-free.
ALMOND BUTTER: You can also use almond butter in place of peanut butter if you want an almond version of this simple recipe.
OATS: We would recommend quick-cooking oats rather than old-fashioned oats for this no-bake recipe.
MIX-INS: Add raisins, coconut, or chocolate chips to this great treat for more fun surprises in every bite.
