This very simple, few ingredient and super tasty peanut butter no bake cookie recipe is calling your name if you or anyone you know is a peanut butter lover!
I made regular no bake cookies last week with cocoa in them for my family to take on vacation for the car ride and I saved a couple for my boyfriend, not knowing if he liked them or not because he isn't a big chocolate fan and he is really picky about foods.....he won't really eat homemade brownies or cake unless they are Little Debbie brownies or cake from a cake mix...I still haven't figured this one out! But, come to find out, no bakes are one of his favorite cookies! I was shocked and surprised that I didn't know this (since we have been dating for almost 6 years)...whoops! Anyway, he asked me if I would make just peanut butter ones the next time I made them because peanut butter is one of his favorite things in desserts!
They are sweet, peanut-buttery, have a great texture from the hearty and chewy oats and they almost taste like peanut butter fudge. If you are looking for a quick and easy sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth craving, a quick dessert for a party, or if it is too hot to turn on your oven, then you should give these a try and I am sure that you and whoever else gets a taste of these will be very satisfied! My boyfriend absolutely loved them!
