    These are so super-amazing! I used half the amount of sweetener (honey, in my case) and they still tasted amazing!

  2. Sarah says

    Another delicious recipe. I had the ingredients at home, which was key in these crazy times. For me the 1:1 ratio of peanut butter to honey was too sweet. Next time I’ll use less honey. Thank you ChoclateCoveredKatie ❤️

  3. Jeri says

    These cookies are just waiting to be made!
    Oh yeah! These cookies are going to be UN-baked today!
    Thank you for the recipe!!!~

  4. Cynthia says

    Oh, my. These are delicious. I had to make do with agave (I have never tried before) as that was the only sweetener on the shelf, and I’m glad I did. It’s quite tasty! As for the cookies, they are dangerous how delicious they are. I backed off the agave a little after reading the comments, and they turned out just right. Going to see how they store in the freezer for those times I need to feed my sweet tooth. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Maria says

    My partner and I both loved these! I had to hold off eating them all as I cooked them! My only recommendation is if you are using maple syrup, start with 1/4 a cup and taste it before adding more because they are pretty sweet.

  6. Alanna says

    Yummy AND easy! I suspect the amount of sweetener will be heavily dependent on which nut butter is used. Something like Jif probably already has sugar and won’t need as much, whereas a very natural nut butter would need more. Just remember you might need to add milk or some other liquid if you use less liquid sweetener and your mixture is too dry. 🙂

  7. Sandy Skinner says

    You are So right! These are very addictive! My grandsons have been over all day and since today was 102 degrees, a No Bake Cookie was just the thing. Thank you for this treat.

  8. Debby says

    My husband and I cannot BELIEVE how amazing these cookies are! So super easy, and super tasty. I use creamy raw, unfiltered honey instead of liquid honey, but I have no doubt that liquid honey would also be amazing. I’ve made double batches each time – – which is a bit of a problem, actually, because double batches in our home don’t equate to lasting twice as long; they’re just eaten twice as fast!

  9. Marni says

    These are SO good! I’ve made them twice now – I just add in 1 T of ground flax seed…I don’t know why…just to make me feel better I guess. Ha! But, my husband and son love these – maybe a little too much. So, I can’t make them all the time 🙂 Thanks for the recipe! Love your new blog site, too! 🙂

  10. Linda says

    I made these and we loved them! Thank you for the recipe! The only issue I had is that they were very sticky. Any suggestions to resolve the stickiness? I used honey and almond milk for the choice ingredients. Thank you!

  11. Ashley says

    These are AMAZING! I followed the recipe while using maple syrup and almond milk. Added dark chocolate chips. They are sweet, but I love sweet cookies. Keeping them in the freezer is genius especially while it’s heating up outside! Thank you for the delicious and easy recipe!

  12. Ali H. says

    These are delicious! They didn’t get chilled here because they were immediately devoured by my family. What an easy and scrumptious recipe! Thank you!

  13. Mark guncheon says

    These are delicious. I love no-bakes because, well, you don’t have to bake them!

    Plus, the picture of you accompanying this recipe is a great one. Congratulations on your success. I know there is a lot of hard work involved.

  14. Sherry Wagner says

    Best of all vegan recipes. I experimented with combinations to roll them in: dry brownie mix, powdered sugar, mini chocolate chips,
    placed on square waffle pretzels. They all were yummy.

  15. Shelly says

    This is such a great recipe. Super easy to make and really delicious. Thank you so much for sharing them. They’re my favorite go to recipe when I want a quick sweet treat. 😋

    Needed to get rid of some Halloween candy, made this recipe using Adams PB, 1/4 cup of maple syrup (not half cup) and added in 8 single serving packs of Reese’s pieces! Sooooo good! Can always count on Chocolate covered Katie to have the recipe I’m looking for!!

  18. Mandy says

    5 stars
    Super easy and quick to make and yes, addictive. Will definitely be making another batch soon to ensure my container in the fridge does not get empty.

  19. Dan Conner says

    5 stars
    I love these cookies! I used natural peanut butter, organic rolled oats, and real Vermont maple syrup with organic coconut oil. I will be making them again. Think I’ll try some dark chocolate chips next batch.

  20. Bill says

    I was wondering if I can substitute applesauce for the butter or oil as my now diet says no dairy and only olive oil should be used. This is for the no bake peanut butter cookies. Thank you.

  21. VM says

    5 stars
    Helped with my cravings of needing something sweet at night. They’re also very good with morning coffee. I used natural peanut butter so I kept them in the freezer because they were soft in the fridge. Delicious and quick recipe.
