These No Bake Cookies don't require, flour, eggs, or an oven. Chocolaty, creamy, with a little crunch, and super addictive. It doesn’t get much easier!

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup creamy almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. In a medium saucepan, add in the sugar, butter, cocoa powder, and milk. Over medium heat, bring the ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly, until butter is melted, sugar is dissolved, and mixture has thickened, about 1 minute.

  3. Remove from the heat and add in the salt, vanilla, and almond butter until combined. Stir in the oats until completely combined and coated.

  4. Working quickly before the mixture starts to harden, using a tablespoon sized cookie scoop, drop batter onto the prepared baking sheets, a couple inches apart since they will spread slightly.

  5. Allow to cool completely.

  6. Once they have hardened (about 25 minutes) serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  1. Refrigeration is not necessary for these cookies. Just store them in an airtight container and they will last about a week at room temperature.
  2. I prefer quick-cooking oats for this recipe, because of their tiny size and tenderness, but if you only have old fashioned oats on hand, you can use those instead.
