Girls night might look a little different these days.

But now more than ever, it’s important to keep up with friends, whether that means virtual happy hours, picnics outdoors where everyone brings their own blanket, or hanging out with roommates or siblings.

And if you live alone? Sometimes girls night can simply mean Netflix binges in comfy pajamas and slipper socks, while eating cookies and drinking wine.

I’ve been having a lot of those lately… and I am not complaining about it!

It looks like I’m serving the cookies at a party.

But it’s 2020, so we know they’re really all for me 😉

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

If you’re home with kids, this can also be a fun and kid-friendly weekday baking project.

The cookies are easy to prepare, and children can help with the measuring and mixing of ingredients.

Plus, since there’s no egg in the recipe, it’s safer for kids (um, or adults) to eat the raw cookie dough, which everyone knows is the best part of making cookies in the first place!

The chocolate chip peanut butter cookies can either be baked or no-bake: The pictures in this post are of the baked cookies, but recently I’ve been doing the no-bake version because it is way too hot to even think about turning on an oven.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

These ultra peanut buttery chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy, and super easy to make.
Total Time 7 minutes
Yield 8 – 12 cookies
5 from 16 votes


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub
  • 3 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (for low carb, try these Keto Cookies)
  • 1/4 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 – 5 tbsp chocolate chips


  • You can do a baked or no-bake version of the recipe – If baking, preheat oven to 350 F. Gently heat the peanut butter if it’s not already easily stir-able. Combine all ingredients. Form cookie balls and place on a baking tray. Press down to whatever thickness you want, as they don't spread on their own. Either refrigerate until firm or bake 7 minutes, then let cool completely before handling, which allows the cookies to firm up.

    A perfect chocolate chop cookie will always be my favourite dessert. Will bookmark these for the weekend 🙂

    • CCK Media Team says

      We haven’t tried, and they might be crumbly. If you want to make quick oats though, you can quickly process regular oats in a food processor for a few seconds 🙂

  2. Kathryn says

    I made them with rolled oats, but left them unbaked. Super yummy! I did have to add a couple extra tablespoons of oats to make up for the “floury-ness” of quick oats.

  3. Kathryn says

    This may be some of the best cookie dough I’ve ever had.

    Oh, we’re not supposed to eat it with a spoon? Oops.
    I just had a baby- I’m doing whatever I want 😋

    Seriously, it is fantastic!

  4. Kristi says

    Another Katie winner! I just made these for my son who loves peanut butter (and for me because well I love chocolate). He just graduated from college and is home until he finds where to start his career. I am taking the time to spoil him just a bit. These did the trick! Thanks!!! …and if anyone is wondering they are good raw too because I never let a beater go int the dishwasher with batter on them and can vouch for the unbaked version as well. 😉

    • Alice says

      Holy Moly! Those cookies are amazing! Such a simple recipe O.O!!! Mine didnt look as beautiful as yours but the taste Was just delicious! My family instantly ate the whole batch! Guess i will have to make a bigger one lol!

  5. Grace says

    These cookies tasted really good! I was looking for a low sugar cookies recipe and this was perfect. I baked for 6 minutes but would bake for longer next time (my own fault!) Would definitely make again but would adjust the baking soda from 3/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp as I feel there was a slight after taste of the baking soda. Great recipe x

  6. Jess says

    Yummo! Fantastic recipe and so delicious. I pulses rolled oats in my blender until they were quite fine, probably close to oat flour, which worked really well. I used coconut sugar and sugar/dairy free choc chips. Absolutely scrumptious! I can see I’m going to have to get more peanut butter as these won’t last long, but I need to have them in my life… *swoon*

  7. Dominique says

    These are so so good !! My son loves them too and he is very picky.
    I substitute the sugar with Sucrine and used low fat Peanut butter +3 tbsp of chocolate chips. DELICIOUS! And only 3sp on WW blue plan. Thank you so much for the recipe !!

    I love this recipe. I have made it several times. Today I tried it with cinnamon chips instead of chocolate chips. It was very tasty that way.

    We made these with sun butter because that’s what we had in the fridge and they turned green inside!!! I had looked for a vegan green sun butter cookie recipe when it was popular last year and never found one. And they were soooooo yummy!!

    I made These tonight & they turned out amazing. You are the best Katie. Shockingly, I ran Out of peanut butter & substituted about 1/4 cup of PB2 with about 1.5 TBS extra of milk. This was so perfect. I’m in high altitude Denver & they cooked perfectly in 9 minutes baking time in center rack. Perfect batch for a solo human like me. Your recipes always save me. I’m saving this one to make in the future. Thank you Queen Katie!

I added a 1/4 cup of Vital Proteins collagen powder for added protein and 3/4 cup of PB. They turned out PERFECTLY & are soo delicious 🥰. I’ll be making these quite frequently I have a feeling! Thank you!

    Absolutely love this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter recipe. Love the simple ingredients. I substituted the sugar instead using 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup. Then added 4 tablespoons of chocolate chips. We baked them exactly 7 mins as suggested and the textured was perfect. I will be taking this to my family BBQ. Thank you 💕💕💕
