This is a spin-off of the original no-bake cookie. Using just peanut butter (crunchy or creamy works) and no chocolate. This makes a huge batch of smaller drop cookies, but I use a big icecream scoop and you get approximately 25 jumbo's.


  1. Bring the first 3 ingredients to a boil for 2 minutes.
  2. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and oats.
  3. Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper or parchment.
  4. Cool in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Very good and I kept eating it!! I had to substitute rice krispies for the quick oats because I can't eat oats. If you use rice krispies you will need less syrup or way more rice krispies

these are very addicting! I use butter in place of the margarine, also I increased the peanut butter to 1-1/4 cups and added in 1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts, thank you for posting Sue, these will be thoroughly enjoyed and gone in a flash! made for KK's Tag game

Easy, Fast, & Tasty! I only made half the recipe. Instead of making balls I spread the mixture into a long sheet. Once cooled I cut into bars. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Revised Review: After eating a few of these we have decide that they are too sweet for our taste. If I was to make again I would cut down on the brown sugar.
