This is the No Bake cookie recipe I grew up with minus the raisins. Be sure to boil at a full rolling boil for the 1 minute or they will not harden. If that does happen, have fun eating with a spoon. (Can you tell it happens to me every once in a while? I also live in a humid climate and that might contribute to those times).Read More
I've made this twice now and still am not totally happy with the results. Making as is results in a WAY too sweet cookie that crumbles everywhere. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and added a little extra peanut butter the second time and they came out better, though the trick seems to be that you have to roll these into compact balls or else they fall apart.Read More

Great consistency. They firmed up with just 10 min. in the freezer. My only complaint is that 2 c. sugar is too much. Even though I reduced to 1 c. sugar (and I have a sweet tooth), it was still too sweet (even though I used no sugar added organic peanut butter). Next time I will try with only 2/3 c. sugar.

Boil too long...crumbly. Boil too short, eat 'em with a spoon. I used 1/2 regular cocoa and 1/2 Hersheys SPECIAL DARK cocoa and skipped the raisins. Very Good!
Was making these for a bunch of serious choco-holics, so I added half a cup of chocolate chips and omitted the raisins, and they rocked! Very fudgey... totally a keeper!
Followed other users advice and cut the sugar in half, but also went all brown sugar. (I like it rich.) My 3 yr old says, 'Dat tast-es good'. I couldn't have said it better - YUM!
First of all, the taste of these was excellent. However, they didn't turn out well. I used 2% milk, a fresh jar of PB, fresh canister of oats, fresh can of cocoa, Watkins vanilla and Land o Lakes margarine. I omitted the raisins. I boiled this exactly one minute and maybe an extra 5 seconds while I was taking off the heat. After I stirred it all together and went to drop them on the wax paper they did not spread out at all. Nothing. They acted like they needed more liquid. They are now very crumbly. I can't figure out what I did wrong.
I followed the recipe to a "T" and it was perfect! Tasted just like my mom's and grandmother's. My kids are lovin' them up too. Great recipe! I got over 2 dozen using a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon.
My hubby made these for me. He omitted the raisins. I can't imagine them being as good with them in. These cookies were delicious. Very chocolately and fudgey! Must try!
Great recipe. It is very similar to one I grew up making (minus the raisins). This cookie is more candy than cookie and therefore you must be patient when making it. If you rush the cooking stage it will cause a crumbling mess. You must heat the ingredients slowly over a low heat until it comes to a full boil and then continue to cook for 1 minute. That should ensure nearly perfect cookies every time.
Great little sweet treat. I liked the idea of adding the raisins too. I used chunky pb. Thanks for a great treat, my son is taking these on the bus trip as snacks to share with friends after the football game. He sampled (quite a few) and gladly packed up a baggie full to share with his fellow classmates/band members.
We followed the recipe closely, cutting the recipe in half and we used a quarter cup of coarsely crushed salted peanuts instead of raisins. (My oldest boy and I made this together.) We dropped them on the wax paper and let them sit in the fridge for about a half hour--that's as long as they could stand it. Turned out pretty well. I did not have one myself but the kids raved about them. NOTE: From someone who's made these before and used a cheap peanut butter, DON'T DO THAT. Use a name brand. You don't want to skimp, they will not turn out and you'll be cranky over wasted ingredients.
I leave out the raisins. And if they seem a little dry, add a few tablespoons of milk.
I LOVE them! I tweaked by using skim milk, half-ed the sugar(brown sugar to make them richer tasting), margarine, used heaping tbs of cocoa, upped the vanilla a bit and omitted the raisins. I stirred all the ingredients together to cook except for the oatmeal to get a smoother texture and make sure everything was well combined. I added the oatmeal last. Put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes if you want to eat them sooner! DELICIOUS. It totally ruined my diet! =]
Wow! I'm rating this recipe just on the "dough" itself! Awesome! Just the right amount of everything. The peanut butter does not overpower it, just enhances the flavour!
These are great. When I was a child, my mom left out the peanut butter, used 2 C oats and added 1 C coconut & kept the raisins. She'd also make them with about 1 C chopped pecans. Yum!
this is the recipe my family loves, minus the raisins. I add the cocoa with the sugar and butter and milk. Bring to a boil for 1 minute, take off heat, add PB, vanilla, and oats. I never have to roll them as they drop just fine. If it gets to thick or crumbly then it was cooked too long.
This recipe is great... I love the peanut butter to cocoa powder ratio! Sometimes we add a little more PB and oats depending on our mood. Raisins are never used, hubby is picky, but I'd like to try these with some dried cranberries! YUM! Super fast, super easy and delicious!
5 STAR.I LOVED THIS REIPE. I SUBSTITUTED COCONUT FLAKES FOR THE RAISINS. (I DIDN'T HAVE ANY) FRIENDS RAVED ABOUT THEM.
I added coconut! these were the best texture. loved 'em
My family loves these cookies! They are so simple and easy to make. We don't like raisins so we leave the raisins out and they turn out delicious.
made with a 6 and 10 year old super easy and fun to make... We got 42 cookies out of a single batch:)
Too good... Instead of peanut butter, Nutella tastes great!
i love this recipe! for a low fat version: mix 5 tbsp of chick pea flour, 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup water and 2 cups sugar. boil for 1 min until it looks like it's getting alittle thick, immediately take of heat add oatmeal, vanilla, crunchy peanut butter,cocoa and mix well. spread on baking sheet and let cool until stiff then cut into squares and serve. a great low fat treat
Omitted Raisins and used real butter. SHEER PERFECTION!!
They came out great I did use more cocoa .0 and used crunchy peanut butter Im making them again tonight
These were such a hit at my Bible study! At the end of the night, I had about 10 people come up to me wanting the recipe. They were very simple to make and tasted absolutely delicious. Thank you!!
Perfect, just omit the raisins. Just be careful of the under or over boiling as it will cause them to be under done or over done and crumbly. These are so good you'll have to give most of them away so you won't eat them all!
Great recipe. The raisins were a nice addition-I've never made these with them before and they really added to the taste. Thanks for sharing with us.
Great Cookies!! I had lost my Mom's recipe and they are my son's favorite. He is in the Aie Force in Biloxi, Ms. and I wanted to send these to him. They turned out just like Grandma's!! Thanks so much for submitting he'll be so surprised!!!!!1
This recipe is a must have for your recipe box because it is so simple to make and really does satisfy sweet cravings. I found this particular recipe to have the best ratio of ingredients and as a result I am replacing my old family recipe with this one!
Not mypersonal favorite but dh and dd love these. 5 stars compared to other recipes but I did make 2 changes. I only had 2 cups of oats and no raisins so I addes 1 cup coconut. Rave reviews.
I am so happy I found this recipe! My mother always made these cookies since I can remember. And when she passed away last year I thought the recipe was lost forever because noone in my family knew it. I had never known of any other person that made these cookies or even heard of them. And then I came across this recipe, Thank You So Much! Cooking them brings very happy memories and eating them too!!! This recipe is PERFECT, just like hers were!
I've never made no bake cookies before, but I love them. This recipe is PERFECT! I omitted raisins because I've never had any with raisins, but otherwise, this couldn't be a better recipe. Thank you!!!
One of the best no bake recipes I have tried.
Absolutely Scrumptious! minus the raisin's :p Thank you for sharing
I had lost my recipe so i found yours thanks so much.Jwoodbury
i did it with out the raisins and doubled the vanilla.... and they were amazing.
I followed this recipe to the letter and the cookies turned out great! :)
I made this with what I had in the house, so: 1 cup coconut palm sugar 1/2 cup soy milk no butter 1/2 cup peanut butter 2 cups not quick cooking oats (whatever is between quick and steel cut) 6 TBS dark unsweetened cocoa powder 1 t vanilla no raisins It was SWEEEET! Super sweet. I ended up plopping the mixture down on a pan and sticking it in the freezer. The texture is great! Just a little (ok a lot) too sweet for me.
100% amazing! a must try - not one bad thing to say at all - worked out just fine as is
Amazing!!! I have had similar cookies before, but there was no raisins. Raisins=Genius! I followed the directions exactly except the milk (We were out or else I would have used regular milk), I used Vanilla Soy Milk. I was really worried, but they turned out GREAT!!! :)
I got this recipe last week and I have made them 4 times already (trying to perfect before Christmas) Everyone loves them! For extra Chocolate flavor I omitted the raisins and added a 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips.
Hands Down the best no bake recipe I have tried! I did omit the raisins due to personal taste but this recipe is quick and easy. I used to have trouble getting my cookies to set but I have made six batches with this recipe and all have set perfectly!
easy and good. I used Splenda for baking and it turned out fine.
These are absolutely delicious! My husband and I love them! I didn't have any nuts to mix in but I did have crunchy peanut butter, which I think worked just as well. At Christmas I just might add some peppermint and cart these around to family shindigs. Thanks alot for the great recipe!
My brother and sister found it yummy!
these are super good! I personally didn't use raisins but they turned out good
The consistency was good. I followed the advice of other reviews and halved the sugar. That was a big mistake! These cookies were gross because of that.
I have made this recipe since I was a little girl. My mother made it and my grandmother. I do cut the sugar down a bit and never put raisins in it.
So easy to make in little time
We do Christmas baking every year. This recipe is one of our staples.
My go to no bake cookie recipe. They turn out great every time. Don't over boil, 1 minute, no longer or they will be chalky. Never tried them with raisins, doesn't sound appetizing to me.
I personally find that the simplicity of this recipe is what made me like these the most. Not only were they super easy to make, but they also tasted excellent. Granted, I ended up not using the raisins or the oats because I had the wrong kind of oats and nobody in my family is fond of raisins, but I still think they turned out rather well!
Only change was I added shredded coconut and omitted the raisins.
Instead of raisins I added a hand full of each flaked coconut and chopped almonds. Very easy and satisfies chocolate craving! I also reduced sugar to 1 1/2 cups.
I love these! I don't care much for raisins so I leave those out. I do add 1t salt when I add the peanut butter. I like to use smooth peanut butter but both types are good.
Taste excellent, but kinda dry. Using less oatmeal next time.
keep the 2 cups of sugar (it is what helps it set properly) but increase PB to 1 cup, and cocoa to 1/4 cup to balance it out.
I love no bake cookies and these are Devine
very good. i like the raisins in this. i cut the sugar by half a cup and omitted the vanilla since i was out.
These cookies are FANTASTIC. The peanut butter/chocolate combination is just right. You can't eat just one.
I used 1 cup of peanut butter and dark chocolate cocoa. They were gone before I could say "Cookies are ready!!" I have also used this as a pie crust for a friend you cannot have gluten.
I left out the raisins, and these were soooo yummy! Highly recommend!
By far THE BEST no bake cookie recipe I have ever made!!!
cut the sugar in half... used half a cup of brown sugar and half a cup of granulated sugar... added a little more milk and left out the raisins... they are setting up now, but they taste yummy(scraped the bowl, lol)
It was Really Easy I also added almonds i put them in the blender added half a cup also i put a full cup of Raisins You can also add cranberrys and coconutof anything that will go with chocolate it was good and did i mention easy thanks 4 the recipe(Caution small kids bounce off the walls if they have more the 2 bars......:-)
Best recipe that I have tried. They turned out perfect.
This didn't work with old fashioned oats, I suggest using quick oats.
Not dry like most other no bake cookies!
These are delicious! While some complain about the sweetness, I found them to be much less sweeter than any store bought alternative. These are rich and yummy! Very easy to make, and take no time. I did not have milk on hand, but had Half & Half, I added a little water, and they've come out wonderfully! Oh I also omitted the raisins (not a fan of raisins). All in all, definitely a new favorite recipe! A life saver for my sweet tooth!
I love this recipie! I have tried other recipies for no-bakes on this site before and they really didnt work out so well. But I cut down the sugar to 1 1/4 cups and I use 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Best np bakes ever. TRY THESE
Nearly same as my original recipe that I lost. I do not add raisins and am thinking of upping the cocoa. I love chocolate flavor. My son is raving and everyone at my family picnic loved em.
I make them exactly as stated. Any variation will mess up the texture of the cookie. Expect these to be very sweet like candy. What do you expect? There is nearly as much sugar as there is grain! It's delicious, easy, cheap, and naturally Gluten Free.
not very good. followed the recipe and their still too dry and have no taste to them.
I make these and instead of taking the time too make them into cookies, I pat them into a 9x13 buttered pan and cut them into bars. patting them into the pan also helps hold them together. no raisins in mine tho
This is my go-to recipe for no bake cookies. Always turns out great
Today I tried both this recipe and the No Bake Cookie V recipe. Hands down, this one is the one I prefer! I only used one cup of sugar and dark chocolate cocoa powder and omitted the raisins. I've learned with these cookies, you MUST bring the mixture to a "rolling boil" and I let it stay there for about a minute and a half. I used extra crunchy peanut butter. Turned out perfect!
Very rich and delicious. Cook on lower heat. Start timing when boil cannot be stirred down. Cook exactly 1 minute...do not overlook!!! I used crunchy honey roasted peanut butter and also added chocolate chips. They were yummy and a big hit at our house! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Made without raisins and came out perfect!
This is the first time I've made these myself. I loved them. The taste was rich and very smooth. I did alter the recipe a bit, I used 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of vanilla and a half a cup more oats than was called for. I'm not good with timing so I cooked the milk, sugar and butter at a hard boil for a minute or a little over. I also split up the batter and made half with raisins half without because my family is picky. Since the raisins on this recipe was measured for the whole recipe I added what I thought was enough. When I started spooning it was a tiny bit runny but as the rest in the pan was waiting to be spooned it started to slowly thicken which told me I made it correctly. Again I loved this recipe. Quick, convenient and tasty!
