These Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies are fudgy and delicious and take 10 minutes to make.  They are perfect for school lunch boxes or for an after school snack!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick real butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 2 cups quick 1 minute oats


  1. Mix the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa together in a large pan over medium heat. Stir to mix together and bring to a bubbling boil.
  2. Boil for exactly 1 1/2 minutes from the time mixture starts to boil, and remove from heat.
  3. Add the oats, peanut butter, and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Drop mixture by large spoonfuls onto a parchment or foil lined cookie sheet. Let set for 5 minutes to set up and cool.
  5. Store in an airtight container. Cookies will stay fresh for 3-4 days.


  • The less time you cook these, the fudgier they will be. If you want extra fudgy, cook for 1 minute and 20 seconds instead of 1 1/2 minutes. They will be runny when dropped onto a cookie sheet but will set up very fudgy.
