These were one of my dad's favorite recipes. My grandma used to make them for her kids and dad made them for us. I use them to get a certain friend to come and visit by offering some fresh no-bakes. I love them, but they're absolutely impossible to eat without milk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first four ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Let cool.
  4. I usually do a double recipe and, more often than not, they don't last more than two days.

My oven was broken and I needed to make a dessert. No Bake Cookies to the rescue! I have tried another No Bake Cookie recipe on this site, but this one is much better. I like that it has more butter and the boiling time is perfect. Bring the mixture up to a full boil, then boil for just one minute. I used creamy PB and old fashioned (not quick) oats.

These are something I learned to make in high school home ec. Thanx so much for the trip down memory lane! I only had fat free milk and I wasn't sure how that would affect the cookie, so I replaced half the milk with liquid coffee creamer and they are still one great (and easy!) cookie. Thanx for sharing!
