Easy, chewy and peanut buttery no bake oatmeal cookies recipe you won’t be able to stop eating! Only 10 minutes to prep and on the healthier side to boot!


  • 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter (125g)
  • 1 small ripe banana (mashed, about 1/3 cup)
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 cup milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats (such as Quaker’s Old Fashioned Oats)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small pot over medium heat, add peanut butter and banana and stir until blended and smooth – about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Add all the other ingredients except chocolate chips and mix well until oatmeal is evenly coated.
  4. Scoop about 2 tablespoon of the mixture, shape into a round cookie and add to baking tray. Top with a chocolate chip in the center. Repeat until all the dough has been used.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Alternatively, you can freeze them for 30 minutes and refrigerate for another 45 minutes for a speedier process.
