  • 3 cups (270 g) quick-cooking oats
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick / 113g) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups (400 g) brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup (122.5 g) whole milk
  • 1 cup (258 g) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add quick oats and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  • Add brown sugar, cocoa powder, and milk whisking until sugar is dissolved. The mixture will boil slightly, then, promptly remove from heat. (Over-boiling will cause a dry/crumbly cookie)
  • Add peanut butter and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour peanut butter mixture over the oats and fold in with a wooden spoon until incorporated. Make sure all oats are fully coated.
  • Use a 2-3 tablespoon cookie scoop and drop the mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving 1-2 inches between each cookie.
  • Let the cookies completely cool on the counter. (They will flatten out a bit as they cool.)
  • Store cooled cookies in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
