You’re gonna love Chocolate Oaties, delicious and EASY 10 minute “no-bake” drop cookies with chocolate, peanut butter, nuts and oats!
Looking for a quick and easy treat? How about Chocolate Oaties? They are delicious “No-Bake” drop cookies featuring chocolate, peanut butter, nuts and oats? The best part is they only take about 10 minutes to make, and are soooo GOOD. Yes, please!
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!). It also may have been because 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. I’ve been making them this way for over 45 years now, and they never fail to get gobbled up! 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.
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.
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.
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 the baking sheet (uncovered) into refrigerator, and refrigerate for an hour so they can set up.
Time To Eat Some Yummy Chocolate Oaties!
After they have been refrigerated for an hour or more, they’re ready to enjoy! 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! They are so delicious, it is hard to keep away from them… ha ha! Have a GREAT day, friends.
