Old School No Bake Cookies: New Edition


  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp milk milk alternative or water is fine too
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups quick oats


  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, honey, peanut butter and milk. Microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk together.
  • Add vanilla and cocoa powder. Whisk again.
  • Stir in oats. Using a Tbsp measuring spoon, plop a heaping Tbsp of dough onto parchment or wax paper. Mold into whatever shape you desire - will be in the consistency of play dough.
  • Allow to set on the counter. Cookies will still be slightly sticky - store in the refrigerator to counter this.


Athletes: These kill the ravenous sweet tooth that can accompany hard training - all while repleting glycogen stores, helping decrease inflammation, and supplying lasting energy that won't leave you crashing (thanks fat and fiber!) 
Healthy Eating: Full of fiber, healthy fats, and protein it kinda doesn't seem right to call this a cookie. But, it absolutely is! Enjoy!
Kids: These are seriously the easiest and fastest cookie you'll make. Plus, I bet you have the ingredients laying around already. Get the kids to help you measure. Be forewarned - there maaaay be a fight over who licks the spoon.
Other Thoughts:
  • Use gluten free oats, if needed. Or, dairy free chocolate chips. Or, sunflower butter for nut allergies. These are totally adaptable.
  • Store in the fridge if you want them hard - like biting into a hunk of fudge, hard. (Highly recommended) They remain a little bit tacky if you store on the counter but totally firm.
  • I completely prefer quick oats in these (unlike 99% of my other recipes that call for old fashioned oats.) The texture of the finer quick oats is so amazing in these. Just sink your teeth into one of these straight outta the fridge and you'll totally understand what I'm saying.
