No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

BY : PUBLISHED : December 28th, 2016 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

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!
