This peanut butter no-bake cookie is a chewy, peanut butter-rich cookie made with oats. Both kids and adults will like this. It’s sweet, chewy, and easy to make.
Again, this is a stovetop recipe. From ingredients to cookies on the sheet took us about ten minutes. Just make a sort of caramel base with the milk, butter, and sugar; mix in the oats, vanilla, and peanut butter, and drop them onto the pan to set. You’ll have delicious peanut butter no-bake cookies in no time at all.
