We gave no-bake cookies a healthy makeover, bumping up the peanut butter and cutting back on added sugar and butter. The result is a chewy, peanut buttery, oat-packed delicious cookie. It's easy to whip up a batch of these--only a few simple ingredients are needed to make these chewy peanut butter cookies and there's no baking required.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat peanut butter, brown sugar, butter and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until the butter and sugar have melted. Stir in oats and vanilla. If using chocolate chips, let the mixture cool to room temperature before stirring them in.

  • Drop the dough by the tablespoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press into 2-inch circles. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Keep refrigerated.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
