No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Yield : 12
  • Prep Time : 20m
  • Ready In : 20m

Four ingredients, no baking required – these cookies are almost too easy to make.

If you know me at all, you would know I am the biggest peanut butter lover. Most sweet recipes (even some savory ones too!) I create involve peanut butter in some way shape or form. When I make cookies, the first thing my friends ask is “is there peanut butter in these?” I swear the one time I excluded peanut butter from my sugar cookies people figured I was lying to them.

Back to these cookies though.. seriously an quick and easy recipe if you’re looking for a healthy version of your favorite peanut butter cookies; you can even top ’em with chocolate drizzle to take it to the next level.

Enjoy! Hopefully, these cookies take your day from great to even (peanut) better!


  • 1 and 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 9 pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 4-8 T almond milk


Step 1

1. Combine date, pb and oats in a food processor until it becomes a grainy, almost sandy texture

Step 2

2. Add in almond milk one tablespoon at a time until a thick dough forms

Step 3

3. Roll into balls and press flat with a fork to form cookie shapes.

Step 4

4. Refrigerate to firm up and enjoy! (Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze to keep longer)

      Hi Michelle!
      I use Enjoy Life dairy-free dark chocolate chips and melt them down for a drizzle. Hope that helps!

    Can you use steel cut oatmeal?

      Haven’t tried; this recipe works best with rolled oats as steel cut may be a bit crunchy but give it a go!
