I remember my first semester of college away from home. One of my roommates said they were going to invite people over and make some no bake cookies. My instant reaction was "so you're serving cookie dough..." Turns out no bake cookies are a real thing, and they're delicious. 

Small Batch No Bake Cookies:

Turns out they're called "no bake" cookies because... you don't bake them in the oven. Instead you mix all the ingredients together in a pot on the stove, and then you scoop them out of the pot, form them into a cookie shape, and let them cool on wax paper. The end result is a delicious cookie that is both filled with chocolate and peanut butter, held together with chunky oats and all the good things. They're an awesome go-to recipe when you need a fast and easy dessert recipe. 

This small batch recipe makes about 6-10 cookies depending on how big you form the cookies when they come out of the pot. You'll have enough to share with friends, or you can make spread them out and enjoy them throughout the week.

No Bake Cookie Ingredients:

Like mentioned earlier, no bake cookies are made with a lot of pantry staple ingredients. That means they're very inexpensive to make, you should have most of the ingredients on hand, and there are minimal cooking steps. To make these cookies you will need: 

  • 1/8 cup Butter 
  • 1/2 cups Sugar 
  • 1/8 cup Milk 
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder 
  • 1/8 cup Peanut Butter 
  • 1 cups Quick Cooking Oats 
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla 

Another perk to this recipe is that no bake cookies are gluten free. If you have a gluten allergy and need a cookie fix, this is a great option to make! 

How to Make Small Batch No Bake Cookies:

To make these small batch no bake cookies all you need to do is stir together the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa powder together in a saucepan on the stove. Let the mixture come to a rolling boil for one minute. and then remove the mixture from the heat. Finally, mix in the peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. 

Once everything is well combined, use a cookie scoop to scoop the mixture into cookie ball shapes on wax or parchment paper. Allow them to fully cool and set before eating. To speed up this process you can put your wax paper on a cookie sheet, scoop the cookies out onto the cookie sheet, and then let them cool in the fridge until they're firm enough to handle.
