Easy No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

Sometimes I just crave a delicious homemade treat. And what’s best about this dessert? It’s made with only THREE common pantry items, and you can make them even fancier by dipping in homemade chocolate. A win-win!

These cookies are delicious, quick, creamy, decadent, and oh-so-peanut-buttery.

I love keeping these cookies on hand for whenever I want a healthy dessert. They store great in both the fridge and the freezer!

These vegan cookies are SO quick & easy to make, and they taste so decadent! Perfect to keep on hand anytime a sugar craving hits.



For the cookies:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy organic peanut butter
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup pitted dates (or about 56 dates)

For the chocolate:

  • 3 TBSP melted coconut oil
  • 3 TBSP raw cacao powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 23 TBSP maple syrup or sweetener of choice


  1. To make the cookies, blend together all ingredients for the cookies in a food processor. Process on high until blended and a dough forms.
  2. Divide dough into bite-sized balls, and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Using a fork, make a cross hatch on top of each cookie.
  3. To make the optional chocolate, melt the coconut oil in a small bowl and stir in cacao powder, maple syrup, and sea salt. Whisk until smooth and creamy. Dip cookies one by one in chocolate and place back on baking sheet.
  4. Store in fridge or freezer!

I just love no-bake desserts. I’m not the best at baking – I honestly hate following recipes word for word so I do much better with general cooking where I can put my own flair into it and not ruin things completely, haha! So these cookies make it simple to throw them together in a flash.

I hope you love these as much as I do!
