Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American, cookies
Keyword: flourless cake, oatmeal cream pie, peanut butter
Servings: 14
Author: Ciarra Siller


  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar works!
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips and chopped chocolate dairy free
  • flaked sea salt for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Place the peanut butter and brown sugar into the bowl of a stand alone mixer and cream using the paddle attachment. Add in the vanilla extract and egg and continue mixing until smooth. Finally add in the oats, baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate.
  • Use a 1 1/2 inch cookie scooper to make 14 evenly sized cookie dough balls and place them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. *If using coconut sugar press the cookie dough balls down slightly before baking. They won't spread as much as much as if you were using brown sugar.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes and the edges are golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for ten minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to continue cooling. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt and serve.

This is the only oatmeal peanut butter cookie recipe you’ll ever need! The ingredient list is so short and easy, they come together really quickly and are foolproof. The outsides are ever so slightly crisp, not in a “too crunchy” way, but more in a satisfying toothsome way—and then the insides are moist, chewy, and packed with flavor. I made these when I was having houseguests and they didn’t even last five minutes once I put them on the table. You NEED this recipe in your life!

Didn’t have enough peanut butter for this recipe so I used 1/2 almond butter and 1/2 peanut butter and the results were great. I also added sliiightly less sugar.

Defo a “healthy-ish” tasting, soft & chewy cookie but delicious nonetheless and the perfect afternoon snack!

Okay so, THESE ARE AMAZING. Super easy to make, filled with wholesome ingredients, and the chewy soft texture + taste combined was perfect.

My modifications: Divided into 8 large cookies, subbed in 1/2 cup xylitol + 1 tbsp molasses to create “brown sugar” texture (all of our brown sugar at home is currently as hard as a rock)

Regardless, the recipe still pulled through. I loved it & I highly suggest you give it a try 🙂 During quarantine, I’ve been trying a new recipe almost every day, and only keeping writing down the ones in my recipe box that are winners, fair to say that this is definitely going in the box.

These did not work for me! I followed the recipe to a T and my chocolate chips would not stick to the dough what so ever. The dough did not cook in the oven, even after cooking for 20 minutes. It was wet in the middle and fell apart. Any suggestions?

I substituted coconut sugar for brown sugar as well as rolled quinoa for the oatmeal–turned out delicious! Heads up that the cookies didn’t spread as much so coarse salt didn’t stick.
