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


  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add quick oats and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  4. Add brown sugar, cocoa powder, and milk. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then, remove from heat.

  5. Add peanut butter and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour peanut butter mixture over the oats and fold in with a wooden spoon until incorporated. Make sure all oats are fully coated.

  7. Use a 2-3 tablespoon cookie scoop and drop the mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving 1-2 inches between each cookie.

  8. Let the cookies completely cool on the counter. (They will flatten out a bit as they cool.)

  9. Store cooled cookies in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
