« Soft Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Next time I’m going to try adding a few chopped peanuts. So kind! The cookies are all marbled differently and taste DIVINE :), (Plant) God bless you, you’re making daily healthy eating so much easier and so much tastier! This was delicious, thanks for the recipe! And this quick bake free recipe did not disappoint! I think so! I added vegan mini chocolate chips instead of dipping in chocolate. Had all the ingredients and just had to try this. I just made this – so fast and so yummy (and so healthy)! Thanks for this recipe. This recipe really needs to be doubled ! The final product tastes like a smushed PB&J sandwich…. In India all of our sweets are no bake, except since recent years of Americanization. Thanks for a perfect hot summer cookie recipe! (creamy or crunchy // ingredients should just be peanuts + salt // we like Wild Friends brand), (sifted // or sub unsweetened cocoa powder). Both I and my friends love this recipe but I prefer the more bitter taste real dark 75% fairtrade chocolate for the glaze to compliment the natural sweetness of the dates. These are SO good!!! I finally found some dates to make the cookies- so easy and tasty! Plus, no wait time, no processed sugar, and extra protein and fiber! Has anyone tried with a substitute for the dates? Thank you for the simplicity!! They look so so so good. Everyone was amazed about the taste paired with the simplicity of vegan (!) I’ve made these twice in the last 24 hours (they’re delicious and quick). These are the BOMB. Your best bet is to measure 1 cup or 3/4 cups of them! They’re a good “healthy” version of a cookie! (I bet even a teaspoon of miso would be add an interesting/funky salty taste.). I highly recommend everyone do the glaze- game changer!!! Thanks Dana! Great idea, Rosemary! Hi Wilem, another reader had success using a blender, but we find blenders have trouble with dates. I keep them in ball form. I did find my “batter” a bit dry, but next time I’m going to add some more pb and maybe some maple. This recipe is oats and p.b with a bit of chocolate. So simple, so quick, yet so good! I’ve tried it now and it works! I use your recipes all the time and recommend your site to my friends trying to be vegan. https://minimalistbaker.com/no-bake-pb-j-energy-bites/. These look amazeballs! They didn’t last long enough to not have taken it asap. Sounds like an awesome dessert since we LOVE peanut butter. This lands into my inbox. Any tips or ideas if you don’t have a food processor? I was hesitant to make this given the dates because I don’t like the overwhelming taste when mashed into other foods (think Lara bars) but I didn’t even taste dates in these. Sorry left a previous comment but realised I hadn’t left the rating so adding now! Thank you, Dana! We’re vegan and one of us is gluten free. Really looking forward to making this! Your thoughts? It’s the second recipe I have tried on your site and I am excited to try more. Then with the same metal spoon, i crush all the peanuts into the melted jaggry. YUM! I also soaked the dates to soften, plus I like to peel off the papery outer skin and soaking helps to do that. You can also subscribe without commenting. 10/10! I tried these and just didn’t get the same feeling. SO GOOD!!!! We both have a sweet tooth so I also smother then in vegan caramel sauce then layer of chocolate. All images and text © for Dinner, then Dessert. I loved the cookies so much that I had 3 right after making them. Thanks so much! I decorated with the chocolate, and had my PNB fix. I added mini chocolate chips. Now, as someone who likes baking and trying new things, I’m experienced enough to know that these cookies are not the most difficult to make, and well, they are made of only 3 ingredients so you’d think they’d taste normal, average. I just mixed the powder with some water before adding to my food processor. Super easy to make and perfect for summer since they’re no bake! Just made these! Enjoy as is, or prepare chocolate glaze (optional) by mixing ingredients in a bowl and whisking until smooth. Quick and easy to make. And these were a perfect activity and snack for me and my toddler. i squashed the dough out to 1 inch thick, cut them out with a small heart shaped cookie cutter then dipped the whole thing in melted chocolate chips with a touch of coconut oil. Hey there! Yummy!!!! These are soo easy to make. I just added a few more dates and it came together just fine. Just fabulous!!! I just made these and they are delicious. Thank you so much for this recipe. Stir in the oats and mix until all of the oats are coated with the mixture and everything is well combined. This post may contain affiliate links. Then I decided it’d be easier for me to make thumbprint style cookies and pour the chocolate sauce in/over the the thumbprint than dunk half of it. .not so much. Made them with homemade almond coconut butter and went straight to heaven. I love that I can make them with my daughter without turning an oven on! Show me what you made on Instagram or Facebook and tag me at @DinnerthenDessert or hashtag it at #dinnerthendessert. I added in a good sprinkle of cinnamon, which gave them a nice flavor. And best of luck to you =). So quick and easy that I was able to make these while my kiddo was napping. I have made the several times to fill the PB craving and they never dissapoint. Maybe I didn’t use enough dates, when measuring them do you pack them down in the measuring cup? Eating the dough was like giving peanut butter to a dog. I had to re-microwave my cocoa-coconut oil mix to get it to re-melt (it hardened when I poured in the cold maple syrup) but that solved that problem fine. I think I must have made that wrong, it was pretty bad. I have made many batches of the vegan no-bake cookies and they are just heavenly. xo. This looks delicious, thanks for sharing! Chef approved recipes for dinners and desserts. I need more than 5 stars for these cookies! We are so glad you are enjoying our recipes, Aza! Even our nephews and moms who won’t try anything vegan ate these up! Excellent cookie recipe! Next time, I will definitely double the recipe. 3. Looking forward to trying the glaze next time but the melted chocolate chips created a nice hard shell that contrasted greatly with the soft cookie :). Share it to your friends and family! Hi Dana, I’m wondering, have you tried this with any other grain? Also in the 1 cup of oats I used one packet of Trader Joe’s mixed instant oatmeal as it has flax, chia, quinoa, amaranth. You could also sub shredded coconut or even almond flour instead of oats! Is there none? If dates are not soft you may want to soak them for 10-15 minutes in hot water to achieve desired texture, something that has worked for me in the past. I wasn’t able to make a chocolate glaze but I had leftover chocolate chips that I melted. In the tastiest possible way. Just made this! Can’t wait to make some coconut-free for my boy and see what he thinks. Place the butter, sugar, and milk in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, making sure to stir often until the butter is melted and everything is well combined. Like this recipe? I love these cold, right out of the fridge. I try to not use oil. I have made this recipe twice. today I added less water (mayhe 1 or 2 tbsp instead of 3 or 4) so they’re not as pretty and fell apart as I was making them but I bet they’ll be more cookie like. =) Yum! Seemed to work, texture-wise. Sorry I forgot to leave a rating with my comment. Thanks! I just made these and they are in the freezer on the second dip of glaze. I’ll double the next batch so I have some for a pre or post workout power snack! Thank you so much. My whole family loves them. I am out of cocoa, so I just melted some vegan chocolate chips (Kirkland brand). Hi Erin, it definitely sounds like one or both were dry. These were AMAZING!!! I didn’t have enough dates so added maple syrup in addition to the 6 dates I had — delicious! Just made these and although I didn’t have enough dates I topped it up with date syrup for a better and less crumbly consistency.. then I didn’t have cocoa powder either, but had vegan choc chips and used that with the coconut oil and date syrup and decided that they were too good to give to anyone and will just stuff my face with them all. They are so easy to make. This was simple, and it came out superb. I’m trying to avoid sugar right now, what’s something that could replace the dates? Definitely saving this for the next party I host! Either way, I like the flavors. I’ve just made a batch of these and they are delicious!
