You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I just realized this picture makes these no bakes look like SnowMan patties. LOL!  Hopefully that won't deter you from whipping up this lightening fast dessert recipe for friends and family this week.

No bakes are awesome for so many reasons. They always seem to stay moist and chewy and you can never eat just one! This recipe adapts a traditional chocolate peanut butter no bake cookie to include a hint of holiday flavor with maple and cinnamon.

2 cups of sugar
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of almond milk
3 cups of maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal packets (approx. 6 packets)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a large saucepan melt the sugar, butter, almond milk and cocoa powder together until smooth.
  2. Add the peanut butter, vanilla and cinnamon and stir until the peanut butter is fully melted.
  3. Fold in the oatmeal packets and stir until the oats expand and soften.
  4. Drop one spoonful at a time of no bake mix onto parchment paper and allow to cool and harden.

Patties or not, these are always a BIG hit!

Have a delicious day Yummies. xoxo
