No oven needed for these cookies which have the most amazing texture and you likely have all the ingredients on hand. You’ll need butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, milk, quick-cooking oats, peanut butter, and vanilla extract.

The butter, cocoa powder, sugar, and milk are placed in a saucepan and brought to a boil. Let the mixture boil for 90 seconds. Set a timer and keep track becasue the cookies might not set up right if you boil the mixture too long or not long enough.

Then remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. So simple!

In less than 10 minutes you can have the ingredients measured, the batter mixed together and shaped into cookies. These No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies do need a little while to set, but you won’t have to wait long. They should only take about 30 minutes to set up. If they are still too wet at this point, try sticking them in the fridge.

This recipe makes a pretty large batch of cookies-  about 24 cookies. They are dense and filling cookies so they will go a long way. That being said, it is hard to not go back for another.  🙂

  1. I couldn’t find our family’s recipe for these so I used yours. They tasted like a bar of bakers chocolate and my heart is racing – beating out of my chest. Maybe a typo? I think that’s way too much cocoa powder. I finally found ours – we’ve only ever used 3-4 Tablespoons. A half cup is 8 Tablespoons. Others with heart conditions, like me, may want to cut the amount (shown) in half as well. 🙂
