These are a delicious, creamy, and chocolate-free version of a no-bake cookie. My husband is NOT a chocolate fan and has been so thrilled that I came up with this simple but yummy recipe for him!

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the butter, milk, white sugar, brown sugar, and honey in a large pot over medium-high heat; bring to a rapid boil for 90 seconds. Stir the salt and peanut butter into the mixture and remove immediately from the heat. Add the oatmeal quickly and mix to combine. Make sure the texture is thick with a little bit of sauce, but not too much sauce. If needed add extra oatmeal.

These were great! I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out after hearing that they didn't set. But, they were perfect! I added a dash of vanilla while it was boiling and I boiled it for 2-2 1/2 minutes instead of the 90 secs. I also added about 3 3/4 cup oats. They set up great and not too sticky! We ate almost the whole batch! Read More

Not bad. Followed recipe/used a natural PB w/ no sugar and it was still a bit too sweet. Easy though. Read More

These cookies were absolutely FABULOUS!!! I did what the other readers did and boiled the sugar mixture for 2-3 minutes. I also used natural chunky peanut butter. I think this was a good way to go because there is already so much sugar. I also used 2% milk and it made no differance. Read More

Oh wow these are good! Mmm so yummy when they're still warm and gooey. I love the honey in there! I did the 2 1/2 min of boiling like other reviewers had said with good result. Will definitely be making these again. So easy in my dorm room:) Read More

My husband doesn't like chocolate either so these are perfect. I pressed all of the 'dough' into a loaf pan melted some chocolate almond bark and poured over half of it to make yummy bar cookies. Fantastic! Read More

Was looking for a differend dessert for a cookout. This was perfect. I was just shy of 1/2 c of honey didn't seem to make difference. Based on other reviews I boiled for 2 min. They were delish! I will absolutely make again. Read More
