3 Ingredient No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

Course: Snacks

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 pinch sea salt optional
  • 3/4 cup medjool dates pitted (measured after pitting)
  • 1/2 cup natural salted peanut butter*

Chocolate Glaze (optional)

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted (measured after melting)
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup  more to taste
  • 1 pinch sea salt optional

Instructions

  • Add oats and salt (optional) to a food processor and blend into a flour. Add dates and blend for 30 seconds more or until finely chopped. Add peanut butter and blend until a dough forms.
  • Scoop out 2-Tbsp amounts of dough and carefully form into mounds. Place on a parchment-lined pan or tray. 
    Optional: Use the back of a fork to create a cross hatch on the top of the cookies (see photo).
  • Enjoy as is, or prepare chocolate glaze (optional) by mixing ingredients in a bowl and whisking until smooth. Dip the cookies in (about halfway), let excess drip off, and place back on parchment-lined pan or tray. Freeze 10 minutes. Then dip again for extra thick shell. Chill again. Enjoy.

Notes

* Creamy or crunchy, ingredients should just be peanuts and salt.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month. The chocolate shell can get soft at room temperature, so it’s best to store them in the refrigerator.
