Yes, please!You're gonna love Chocolate Oaties, delicious and EASY 10 minute "no-bake" drop cookies with chocolate, peanut butter, nuts and oats!

I grew up eating Chocolate Oaties. My Mom made them for our family quite often, I suppose because they taste so good (gotta be that chocolate-peanut butter combo!) and the fact that they are fairly inexpensive and ridiculously QUICK AND EASY to make in 10 minutes.

Whatever her reasons were, these no-bake cookies were always a big hit with our family.  Here’s how to make them:

How To Make Chocolate Oaties

Measure the peanut butter, oats, vanilla, salt and chopped nuts into a large mixing bowl. Set aside. It’s important to do this BEFORE next step! Trust me.

Ingredients for chocolate oaties in bowl.

In a medium saucepan, place sugar, cocoa, butter, and evaporated milk. Cook on medium heat, stirring often, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil ingredients for 1 minute.

Cocoa, butter, sugar and evaporated milk cook before adding to dry ingredients.

Immediately remove the chocolate sauce from heat and pour over peanut butter/oat mixture in mixing bowl while it is boiling hot.  The very hot chocolate sauce helps to melt the peanut butter!

Stir the chocolate oaties well, to fully melt peanut butter and combine all ingredients.  Place a piece of wax paper on a 9×13 baking sheet.

Ingredients are stirred to combine ingredients for chocolate oaties.

Form And Then Refrigerate The Chocolate Oaties

Drop the chocolate oaties batter by rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper (Use 2 spoons… one to scoop, and the back of the other to scoop/drop cookies onto paper).

Place baking sheet (uncovered) into refrigerator, and refrigerate for an hour so they can set up.

That’s it!!!  See how easy that was?  Remember to store any uneaten chocolate oaties in a covered container in refrigerator. By the way… here’s one I saved for you… want a bite?

I hope you enjoy these quick, yummy, easy to prepare drop cookies… we sure do!
