Guys, I have the most easiest cookie recipe for you today, and you are gonna LOVE it. These cookies require no baking and only 4 simple ingredients. Yup. And they are so good! If you’ve tried and loved my 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, then you need to make these. Right now.

For these No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies, you’ll need:

  • smooth peanut butter
  • quick oats
  • icing/powdered sugar
  • vanilla extract

Simple, right? 🙂

To make these cookies, simply combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Shape the mixture into circles 2-inch (5cm) wide, 1/2-inch (1cm) thick. I pressed my mixture into a cookie cutter for perfectly shaped circles. Place the cookies onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and store in the freezer until firm – about 30 minutes. I drizzled my cookies with a little melted chocolate, but that is totally optional.

These cookies should be kept refrigerated in an airtight container. They will become too soft left at room temperature. You can also freeze them for up to 1 month, but they won’t last that long. 😉

Ingredients
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter 250g
  • 1 cup quick oats 100g
  • 3/4 cup icing/powdered sugar 90g
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, oats, icing sugar, and vanilla until completely combined. You may need to use your hands towards the end to gather everything together.

  2. Shape the mixture into 2-inch (5cm) wide, 1/2-inch (1cm) thick circles. You should get about 10 -12 cookies. I pressed mine into a cookie cutter to get perfect circles.

  3. Carefully place the cookies onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, or silicone mat, and place in the freezer until firm - about 20 - 30 minutes.

  4. Drizzle the cookies with melted chocolate, if desired.

Notes

Cookies should be kept refrigerated in an airtight container. They can also be frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the fridge.
