No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Ingredients
How to Make These No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- Preparation: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
- In a saucepan, combine cocoa powder, butter, milk and sugar over low heat until it melts.
- Turn off the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract.
- After the peanut butter melts thoroughly stir in the oats.
- Spoon the mixture in the baking sheet (about 2tablespoons per cookie) then put the baking sheet in the fridge for an hour or until the cookies become firm.
You can use either quick oats or whole oats in making these cookies. Both will work fine.
I prefer to use creamy peanut butter in this recipe. However, if you want to use crunch peanut putter go ahead.
Use a measuring spoon or dough scoop to have the perfectly sized cookies.
These oat cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months in a well-sealed container.
You can replace granulated sugar with brown sugar or coconut sugar.
Don't use ghee instead of butter. Using ghee will affect the taste and texture of these cookies badly.
Can I make these oat cookies dairy-free?
Yes, you can. Just replace the milk with almond, coconut, or oat milk and replace the butter with coconut oil and you will have the best dairy-free oatmeal cookies ever.
