Peanut Butter & Honey No Bake Cookie Recipe

Peanut Butter & Honey No Bake Cookie Recipe
Share on:

You’ve probably enjoyed chocolate no bake cookies before, but these are for peanut butter lovers, which I sure am!

I got the recipe from a lady whose husband couldn’t eat chocolate and she told me that she just took the standard no bake recipe and didn’t add the cocoa into it. I love how the peanut butter is the star of the show in these delicious cookies.

I also swapped the sugar for honey to make them a little more healthy, but if you want sugar instead, use 1 1/2 cups in this recipe.

Great to make on any day you don’t want to have to heat up the oven.

For shaping them, I either spread them into a square pan and cut them into squares when cool or I use a cookie scoop to shape them. You can just drop them from a spoon, too.

Warning: Be careful to not boil them for more than one minute or they can get really dry and crumbly.
