The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Butter – we used salted butter, but unsalted works as well.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Milk – you can use whole, 2%, 1%, or skim milk.
  • Creamy peanut butter – chunky peanut butter is not the best for this recipe.
  • Vanilla extract – vanilla adds a nice hint of flavor to the peanut butter cookies.
  • Quick-cooking oats – be sure you use the quick-cooking oats and not old fashioned rolled oats which will not cook correctly.
