Gluten Free No-bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Here is a recipe that I use to make no bake, gluten free peanut butter oatmeal cookies. I originally took it from but have changed it a bit to reflect more healthy ingredients.

I got to review some FineNaturals brand raw cacao. It is extremely rich and made from the high quality cacao beans, the Criollo. It is characterized by a unique flavor profile, with notes of vanilla and hints of caramel and a complete lack of the bitterness commonly associated with inferior brands.

Gluten Free No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


  • 2 cups sugar (I use a combination of coconut sugar and stevia, about 1 cup coconut sugar and depending on your brand of Stevia, a teaspoon)
  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao (I used this brand, here)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 12 cup butter
  • 12 cup milk (I use half and half)
  • 12 cup peanut butter (I use a bit more)
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (I use my homemade gluten free vanilla - recipe can be found here)


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients.
  2. Bring to boil and cook for 90 seconds.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the peanut butter until it dissolves.
  5. Add oats.
  6. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well.
  7. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Cool for 30 minutes or until set. (I put in the freezer so I can eat them sooner).

This raw cacao powder is non-GMO and can be found on Amazon here.
