About the Recipe


  • ▢½ cup (113g) unsalted butter diced

  • ▢1 ¾ cups (350g) granulated sugar

  • ▢½ cup (118ml) nonfat milk

  • ▢½ cup (133g) creamy peanut butter

  • ▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ▢¼ teaspoon salt

  • ▢3 cups (243g) quick cooking oats


  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  • It’s very important that all your ingredients are measured and ready to go before you start and make sure you’ve read the directions before making these cookies. The process goes fast!

  • Melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth then bring to a boil and cook for about 1 ½ minutes, stirring occasionally. NOTE: you MUST boil them long enough or they will not set. To be sure of this, boil the mixture until it reaches 230°F on a candy or instant read thermometer. If you do not have a thermometer, this will take about 1 ½ minutes on medium heat.

  • Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, salt, vanilla, and oats.

  • Use a cookie scoop to drop 2 tablespoon size balls of cookie mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. Let sit to set or chill to harden quicker.
