No-bake peanut butter oatmeal cookies
Happy National Peanut Butter Day! I’m a big fan of peanut butter and use it all the time. We always have a jar of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter on hand and definitely put it to good use. :) I bake with it, add it to smoothies, make PB&J’s for the kids and even grab a spoonful (topped with chocolate chips of course) when I’m craving something sweet.
To celebrate the day, I’ve whipped up a chewy peanut butter no-bake cookie recipe that’s full of that creamy and delicious peanut butter flavor! These no-bake oatmeal cookies are so easy to make and only take 10 minutes to prep. Plus I guarantee that you likely already have the ingredients on hand, which make them the perfect treat to quickly throw together when you’re in a pinch.
The peanut butter no-bake cookies were a big hit with my family and were gone so fast! Next time I might even double the batch and stick half in the freezer so that we’re stocked. They make the perfect grab-and-go sweet treat and taste absolutely amazing!

- Line two baking sheets with parchment or wax paper and set aside.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter and milk and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, constantly stirring.
- Remove pan from heat and mix in peanut butter and vanilla. Then add oats and mix until well coated.
- Drop batter by the spoonful onto the lined pan. Let cool until set, about 30 minutes.
TIP: I like to drizzle half of the peanut butter no-bake cookies with chocolate. The chocolate adds the perfect touch of sweetness and pairs perfectly with the creamy peanut butter. So yummy!
How do you store no-bake oatmeal cookies?
The peanut butter no-bake cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container or bag for up to a week. However I personally like to store them in the fridge, because it hardens the texture a little and makes them extra chewy. If stored in the fridge, they’ll last a few more days.
Can you freeze peanut butter no-bake cookies?
Yes! These no-bake peanut butter oatmeal cookies hold up very well in the freezer. Just store in an airtight container or bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you’re planning on freezing the whole batch, make sure you let the cookies set first before adding them to the container or else they’ll stick together.

Sometimes I’ll top some of the peanut butter no-bake cookies with a chocolate kiss to add some sweetness. They look similar to a peanut butter blossom, but don’t require any baking! Once you drop a spoonful of the batter on your baking sheet, just press the chocolate kiss into the cookie immediately. Then let cool in the fridge until set. The chocolate and peanut butter combo is so yummy!
