5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
So thank you again for this simple recipe that will give me a little taste of home!!! Use the hashtag MinimalistBaker on Instagram: Sorry you had trouble, but it sounds like you worked it out in the end. Let me know how you make out. Best of all the dogs love them….. When mine crystallized I cut the top off with a serrated edged knife then scooped out the honey and placed in a large jar.

It was an organized trip with a group through the Y with a goal of strengthening relationships between fathers and daughters.
The mom who introduced the group to us warned me that it would be candy-filled weekend. All the girls come to camp loaded with snacks and candy. You know I cringed thinking about sending Meghan with store-bought candy that is filled with preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, and unhealthy oils.
I decided to make her some homemade treats that would lessen the toxic load, even if just a little. You can trust me when I say looking perfect is not what matters to Meghan when it comes to chocolate. She and Luke keep begging me to make more of these.
This time I just used peanut butter and guess what? I love it with just pure peanut butter! Freeze each layer before you do the next layer.
I drop the chocolate into the paper cup, add the peanut butter, then add the chocolate. I also used a full-sized muffin tin for the updated pictures. You can use either a full-sized muffin tin or a mini-muffin tin.
I used mini-sized paper cups. I was playing with the ratios so there are some with more chocolate and less peanut butter, and those are shown in the bottom two pictures. Nobody liked those as much. Just so you know. Thank you for subscribing to the Happy Healthy Mama e-mail list! I look forward to connecting with you more! I made these today and used natural smooth peanut butter..
I hope that helps! I had a friend try these with olive oil and said that it worked, but they were not as solid. I made these today, but I made some alterations: Both are natural sweeteners but sugar-free! Just re-use the coffee grounds again by having another cup handy. Add a little more coffee ground, then drip about tablespoons of water over the grounds and into handy cup.
Pour from handy cup over grounds into another handy cup again about times to make extra strong coffee; switching cups. Now melt chocolate chips about. Mixture should sheet off spoon not run for the hills Practice as it took me a few times.
Pour over the top of setup oat and peanut butter mixture and spread smooth. Put some fine chopped peanut or any nut that makes you happy sprinkled over top. And for the naughty side instead of coffee add Kaluah or brandy. This is a hearty foundation treat; but with a little imagination and a drive to satisfy a craving this can be changed up and made different.
Does not work the first time try again and make adjustments. Let the imagination go wild. Do follow recipe exact a few times and get the feel of how the mixture is suppose to be; then go from there with change ups. Actually I made a mistake thinking rosemary was mint…can we say we getting a little old. I just had to come back here and thank you for this post! This are soo delicious and so easy to make! I used organic natural peanutbutter and got the crunchy kind to add a little crunch to it.
I call them my healthier version of no-bake cookies which are my absolute fave! I will definitely be bringing these instead to Thanksgiving this year! I cut a few calories by using PB fit peanut butter powder. I also subbed honey for maple syrup, and threw in grain sweetened chocolate chips for a suprise! The PB fit cuts the calories dramatically. Great variation is to pretoast the oats in the oven or in a skillet before you use them, really brings out the flavor.
Used crunchy peanut butter, brown sugar and a bit of water to keep them from being too dry. They taste like peanut butter fudge… awesome! I made these earlier today, and I have to say that they are great! I also added melted semi sweet chocolate on top before I put the pan in the fridge. I think next time I will use only 2. Also, I am going to try cutting the squares before I put the pan in the fridge, as I found it difficult to do once the mixture had already set.
Thanks for the easiest snack recipe ever: I halved the recipe too. Could be used with rice crispies too instead of oats. Thoughts on using crunching peanut butter? I used almond butter, oats, a little flax meal, local honey with its pollen and vanilla. Great to have on hand instead of sweets. If you are using the Aunt Jemima type syrup it will be a fairly equal substitute.
These are very good…but add the oatmeal abit at a time…then stir…. Three cup of oats would have been too much for me…the bars would have been too dry. Food is a science and I guess it just depends what brands, types of ingredients are used. I used Costco organic creamy pb, trader joes honey, and trader joes rolled oats. I heated it up til it was really smooth, and decided to use just one c. It instantly became a pile of dry oat crumbles.
What could have been my mistake? Trying these today and could NOT be more excited! I bet adding some cocoa powder to these would be delish, too! I love the people that say I loved them…I just changed the recipe a bit, and the entire recipe was modified. This is a great recipe. These are so good. Half are gone already. I will have to make some more soon. Yes, this recipe is from Chocolate Covered Katie.
A simple internet search would have revealed the source. But I am sure that there will be plenty of other people going back years and years decades even that would have had a similar version Its 3 ingredients or a variance on it and like all recipes there is always a variant from recipes handed down Put this in google and you will see a truck load of recipes with variants https: In fact this recipe was from before either.
Recipes evolve and get shared around all the time http: Oh, yes, you have made my day. Was wanting to make something that is quick and simple so I thank you; especially my hubby. He will love these. I made these tonight and they tasted great!
I used crunchy peanut butter and also added on top a layer of hard-shell chocolate. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I made these using all natural peanut butter and quick oats. I heated the PB and honey in the microwave. It looked curdled when I took it out. Had to use my hands,and it was still so stiff and unworkable,I added more honey,then melted coconut oil to add to it. They were really terrible!
Could it have been that the honey had been around a while and had previously been reheated because it had crystalized? I still think this needed something more…. Sorry about the grammar…. Ok, so this recipe is bogus. First of all, it says it makes 20 squares. You could only get rectangles, yet all the pictures are of square bars.
I had to use equal parts oats and peanut butter to get a good consistency. I just bought so many extra oats for no reason. Hi there… I posted this recipe, have made it so many times and the pictures you see are what I made in my own kitchen of these bars using this very recipe. Sorry you had trouble, but it sounds like you worked it out in the end. It automatically put 5 stars but this recipe is a 1 star.
I made these and they turned out bad!!! Turns out 3 cups of oats to 1 cup of peanut butter was not a good ratio. The mixture was dry! Must be a typo. These look amazing and I will definitely try them, do you have the calorie information on a serving size you suggest? I made these for girl scouts a loonnnggg time ago.
I was just wondering if you really need honey. Would it be possible to do it without it? I made it exactly as the instructions indicate, and they came out just fine! I was prepared to put in less oats, but 3 c. I did press the mixture into the pan, too. Like rice crispy treats, this keeps them moist and chewy. I can taste the honey as well as the peanut butter…so good and easy!
I love how the honey and peanut butter stand out while the oats give it texture! I added a little agave, coconut oil and flavored oats to these it was amazing thank you!!!
I just made the bars , my husband loves them. I used half smooth and half chunky organic peanut butter …very easy and quick bars with no preservatives …keep them frozen when you need them just get them out of the freezer. I used smooth and chunky organic peanut butter …so good.???? I absolutely LOVE these! They are so much better than store bought granola bars! I also tried toasting the oatmeal prior to making them. That was awesome too! Tried this and loved it!
I decided to double the recipe because I have 4 kids who all need lunch snacks. Melted the PB and honey and low and behold I only had 3 cups of quick oats.
I added 4 baggies of cinnamon and spice Quaker packets and it turned out great! They had a great flavor and texture. Nowadays, I now add a couple tablespoons of various seeds to up the nutrition. Just rolled up into a ball in the pot on the stove. I used maple syrup instead of honey, and it worked out just fine: Made these and was kind of disappointed. They did taste good though. The quick oats are cut smaller to cook faster and work in this recipe because they will pack more densely.
I added in 2 tablespoons of flax meal and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to mine, for extra health. Super simple and easy, and they remind me of those super chewy and dense Clif Bars, but much cheaper and fewer ingredients!
I intend on eating these for breakfast, so I made 6 huge meal-sized bars. Perfect for a busy morning! What sort of life do you have? I added some raisins and cinnamon to add more sweetness!! But it would be just as amazing without those ingrediants! This information will not be used for any purpose other than enabling you to post a comment.

Combine mixture with oats. Press into prepared pan. Place in refrigerator until set. Notes I like to store mine in the refrigerator because they can get a bit soft. Honey , Oatmeal , Peanut Butter.
My website has always been dedicated to the very best sweet treats with an occasional family friendly meal sprinkled in and my book is everything you have grown to love about my site and more. Easy, 3 ingredients, and perfect! They get hard because they are using corn syrup as a filler. Does the honey taste get stronger, the older it is?
I buy store bought, and my honey crystalizes. Put container in microwave and heat about 30 seconds, this should soften the honey. Would that not kill the natural enzymes and all the other goodness of raw honey? So simple and yet looks so yum!
