Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
Delicious yet simple No Bake Cookies. These are for the true Peanut Butter Lover!
I love the simplicity of a no-bake cookie. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me share a photo of a big pile of mulch. We spent our weekend weeding all our gardens and laying fresh mulch. While it looks beautiful, it’s exhausting work. The weather here was perfect and gorgeous. And it was a good reminder that no bake desserts are awesome to have on hand for summer. You know, when you need something sweet but don’t feel like turning on your oven!
These peanut butter no bake cookies are just the thing. Unlike traditional no bakes, there is no chocolate. I have a family of peanut butter lovers and we needed full peanut butter flavor. Plus, should I remind you they have oatmeal? Peanut butter + Oatmeal = health food. Breakfast. Yeah, I know it’s a stretch, but go with it.
I added in some Reese’s Pieces just for fun! These cookies taste like a giant Reese’s Pieces! Seriously.
Speaking of Reese’s Pieces…anyone else feel they get neglected sometimes? Second string behind the PB cup? I grew up in the 80’s and going to the theater to see ET when it was first released. Reese’s Pieces had their fame back then, time to bring it back! Right??
