This No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie recipe is very versatile and can be used as a base. Feel free to add your favorite add ins such as: chopped pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, etc.) or even some no sugar added chocolate chips ( Be sure to sprinkle the chocolate chips after cooking to avoid melting)  for additional points. 

What ingredients do I need to make these No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies?

  • Quick Cooking Oats: The quick cooking oats makes the cookie texture chewy and delicious. Be sure to use quick cook oats and NOT old fashioned oats. The old fashioned oats creates a different texture for these cookies and they are tougher in texture. 
  • Fat/Butter/Peanut Butter:  It important to add a little bit of fat to this recipe to help bind the oats together. Now that my two favorite whipped peanut butters Jif Whips and Peter Pan 1/3 less fat whipped have both been discontinued!! I have since found a few other brands that I tried and LOVE!

This Better’n Peanut Butter Peanut Butter is only 100 calories, 3 smartpoints for 2 Tablespoons, 4 grams of protein, and is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Palm Oil Free, and Kosher.

You can find it online on Amazon HERE.

 

The other brand I LOVE and RECOMMEND is American Dream Nut Butters. These nut butters are low in points and are amazing!!  I have loved the every flavor!

  • Unsweetened Almond Milk or Skim Milk:

The unsweetened or skim milk is used to thin out the chocolate sauce. You will only be adding in 1/2 cup-so the overall point value doesn’t change regardless of which one you use. 

  • White sugar substitute/vanilla or almond extract:

I use Lakanto Classic Monk fruit Sweetener as a substitute for granulated white sugar.  In my honest opinion, the is the best tasting zero point sugar substitute on the market. It has no after taste and tastes and bakes just like regular sugar. Many other sugar substitutes have a bitter aftertaste and don’t bake well. You can find this at your local Costco store or save 20 % off online here.

 

How do I make these No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies?

Combine oats and salt and mix them together into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Meanwhile, In a saucepan whisk together light butter, unsweetened almond or skim milk, and sugar substitute. 

Stir until butter melts. Add cocoa powder and continue to stir occasionally as it cooks over medium-high heat.

Bring to a boil, and boil for 1 minute. ( this is important-it allows the mixture to set to the right consistency.) 

Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. 

Pour mixture over the oats. Stir until well combined.

Spread a sheet of parchment parchment or wax paper on the counter top. 

Using a small cookie scoop, drop onto the parchment paper. 

Allow cookies to cool. It can take 10-15 minutes for the cookies to set.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

I used dry PB2 in place of the peanut butter and cacao in place of the cocoa because I was out. They turned out great!

I only had stevia to use instead of monkfruit. I also used JIF crunchy peanut butter and reduced to 7 Tbsp to keep it at the same point range. I just can’t handle the aftertaste from the stevia. Do you have any suggestions?

Carmen

Monkfruit is much better. I also can’t stand the aftertaste of Stevia.

Could I use country crock instead of the light butter?

Lindsay Kehl

Tuesday 18th of February 2020

Hi Deb,

Yes, you bet-you can substitute the light butter for the Country Crock. It may vary in points-but you can compare the point in the ww app. The Land o'Lakes light butter is 2 Smartpoints for 1 Tbsp. Hope that helps!

Thank you!
