  • ½ cup butter unsalted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick cook oats
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • In a large bowl stir together oats and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, whisk together butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil for about a minute and then remove from heat.
  • Whisk in peanut butter and vanilla until well combined.
  • Pour chocolate peanut butter mixture over oats and stir until combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Drop cookies onto the wax paper using a medium cookie scoop.
  • Let the cookies cool on the countertop. Store in the refrigerator once cookies are cool and dry.


TIP: If using salted butter rather than unsalted butter, do not add any additional salt! 
TIP: Make sure you have your other ingredients measured and ready to stir in as soon as the chocolate comes off the heat.
TIP: Don't overcook the chocolate mixture. Otherwise, it will become too thick, and you will end up with crumbly cookies.
TIP: It's VERY important you let them cool on the countertop before putting them in the fridge or they will become gooey.
