I’ve been all about the Peanut Butter lately. Like, eat-from-the-jar-with-a-spoon kind of obsessed. Not that that’s a bad thing, but I can’t really put a “Peanut Butter on a Spoon” recipe on this blog and expect it to be a hit. 

I’m also always looking for any and every excuse to include more Chocolate in my diet…and thus, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies were born. They’re made from simple ingredients and simple steps, but just as satisfying as any fancy cookie out there. Plus, you don’t even have to turn your oven on to make them!

Simply melt some chocolate, stir in your favorite Peanut Butter, and then fold in some Rolled Oats. The Chocolate and Peanut Butter combine to give the cookies a soft, sweet, and indulgent flavor, while the Oats give a nice chew and heartiness.

I like to enjoy these cookies with a glass of Non-Dairy Milk, but however you serve them, you’re bound to enjoy 😉 I think they’d also be a fun treat to make with kids!

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • Omit the Salt if your Peanut Butter is already salted, or just use a small pinch.
  • I prefer to use Crunchy Peanut Butter to give these cookies a little crunch, but Smooth works too! You can also replace the PB with any other Nut or Seed Butter of choice.
  • If you would like to keep these Cookies Refined-Sugar Free, both Hu Kitchen and Pacari make some Vegan Chocolate that is sweetened with Coconut Sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Pre-measure all of your ingredients and have them ready, as you will have to move quickly once the Chocolate is melted.
  2. Melt your Chocolate in a large glass bowl, using either the microwave or double-boiler method. If you are using the former, Microwave the Chocolate for 1 minute, stir, then continue to microwave at 20-second intervals, stirring with a spatula in between each time. Once the chocolate is 80% melted, stop microwaving and stir rapidly until all remaining pieces have melted.
  3. Add the Peanut Butter, Salt, and optional Vanilla Extract to the Chocolate, stirring rapidly. The Chocolate will immediately start to thicken, so move quickly! Once everything is well incorporated, add in the Rolled Oats and continue to mix until they are evenly distributed.
  4. Use a large cookie scoop (or your hands) to form 10 even cookies – each one will have about 1/4 cup of “batter.” Let cool completely to allow the Chocolate to harden, then serve as desired! Cover the leftovers and store at room temperature for up to 6 days.

Notes

  • Omit the Salt if your Peanut Butter is already salted, or just use a small pinch.
  • I prefer to use Crunchy Peanut Butter to give these cookies a little crunch, but Smooth works too! You can also replace the PB with any other Nut or Seed Butter of choice.
  • I do not recommend using Quick or Steel Cut Oats for this recipe; the cookies will not hold up as well.
  • If you would like to keep these Cookies Refined-Sugar Free, both Hu Kitchen and Pacari make some Vegan Chocolate that is sweetened with Coconut Sugar.

  1. Exactly what I was craving! Thanks Caitlin. It was so easy and quick. I put them in the freezer so that I could eat them more quickly.

  2. ALso, very easy to make I thought of making and desert and I was like what to make. I found this boom best sim pless desert so far.

  3. I made these delicious cookie. They were awesome. Not too sweet, they came out perfect. My 2 sons lives them, soo did I. Great recipe. Easy to prepare. Looking to use more of ur awesome recipes. I also signed up for more recipes *****

    1. awesome cookie been eating and making them since II was a young broke mother I use a little less oats and added coconut they are awesome thank you for reminding me of these!

  4. Hi Caitlin !
    I tried this cookie recipe for my last week afternoon snacks and OMG they are bomb !!! They’re so easy to make and so decadent <3 I think I will make them again because I used a chocolate way too sweet for my taste but the cookies were OK…Also I think my chocolate were too hot because it never formed a thick paste like it was supposed to be… I hope that next time they'll be even better (I Don't know if it's possible because they already are delish) than those in my snack box !
    Thank you for those recipes and take care <3

  5. My husband calls these “nom-nom cookies”! Lol
    I cut the chocolate chips back to 5 ounces because 8 seemed a little too much. Not sure if you meant an actual 8oz cup measurement but, I used a scale. It still works great for me. I just made my 3rd batch the day before yesterday, we have 2 cookies left, and my husband is already talking about me making more! Thanks for the great recipe! Love your work & watching your videos!!

    1. Love that name! 8 ounces cup measurement, but glad that you customized the amount to your liking! Thank you!

  6. my cookies didn’t really wanted to stick together? the dough tastes so good though

    1. What kind of oats were you using? Quick and steel cut oats won’t hold up as well rolled oats.

  7. Soooo yummy. Made these literally as I was running out the door to meet friends for a movie night, that’s how quick and easy they were! I can’t wait to experiment with different kinds of chocolate and nut butters. Yummmmm I’ve almost eaten all of them and I just made them yesterday 😛

  8. These are delicious and so easy to throw together! I used 1 part rolled oats to 2 parts quick oats just because that’s what I had on hand, and they came out great. Thanks for sharing!!

  9. Wow sooo good. My favorite cookies growing up were the classic no bake cookies but since going vegan almost 2 years ago I haven’t been able to nail the consistency of no bake cookies. I just made these tonight for me and my wife and we were instantly addicted. The easiest cookies I’ve ever made and are absolutely delicious!! I have a feeling these will be getting made quite often. Thank you so much for another simple delicious recipe!!!

  10. I’m not vegan so I used milk chocolate to make these. I also used almond butter instead. Ah-mazing. I think the milk chocolate made the melted chocolate a little more liquid-y(?) which allowed all the oats to be thoroughly coated. I also mixed everything in one large bowl once the chocolate was melted and they turned out fine. Do not stress if you forget to keep liquid mix and dry mix separate.

  11. I started the night off with your recent chili recipe, then had a hankering for chocolate. I knew I wanted to make no bake cookies like this, but all the “traditional” recipes I found required tons of sugar, plus milk and butter. While it would have been easy to sub vegan ingredients, I figured there had to be an easier way. Enter this recipe! Real talk: I was too lazy to scoop them into blobs so I poured it all into a pie tin, plopped it in the fridge, and ate it giant-cookie-style 30 min later. Plenty of leftovers for…. breakfast tomorrow? 😛

  12. These look so good! Do you think it would work with PB2/peanut butter made with the powder/water for a lower fat option?

  13. Where have you been hiding this recipe?!
    Omg this was so unbelievably delicious! Wow wow wow!! Thank you, Caitlin!

  14. Really??? You can make these cookies with only oats and peanut butter?! I am MYSTIFIED. I have a recipe where you only need peanut butter and maple syrup to make cookies, but oats and peanut butter…huh, that sounds like a challenge I’m willing to embark on! These cookies look freaking scrumptious and I am all here for it!
