So lately it’s been like 1,000 degrees at home. Okay, fine, it hasn’t been an actual 1,000 degrees, but it’s been HOT. Like, Snoop Dogg would be telling us to drop all kinds of things HOT.

Has it been particularly steamy where you’re at?

Well, with this heatwave being all summery and stuff (yes, I just said that)… I’ve made it my mission to decrease any activity or movement that will make my apartment even hotter. Because honestly, Erik gets really testy when it’s hot. Even when there are gluten free coconut macaroons to munch on.

Oh, alright, so do I…

Either way, I gladly cancelled plans for all manner of baked bars, muffins, breads and more BECAUSE: I just had to drop it like it’s hot. (Sorry.)

I even had all of these plans to start testing early for the Fall: making blueberry muffins per reader request, tackling that goshdarn paleo vegan pumpkin pie that thwarted me last year… maybe even ever-so ambitiously tackling a paleo vegan angel cake (how do I even start on replacing those 500 egg whites, you tell me—oh, alright aquafaba, I’m sure…)

And now I’m even arguing with myself about how to go about these things. Do ya see what the heat does to me?

But I’m kind of thinking you’re in the same boat. And on the chance that you are, or you just love ridiculously easy recipes, I thought I’d introduce you to my second no bake cookie recipe of all time (I know, right): my 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies.

We’re gonna take this nice and slow, this business called re-making, re-imagining, re-eating my new classic 3 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies. Many folks have written in, asking for a double chocolate version, a trail mix remix, one with lemon and one without…

But my very favorite request (which I got multiple times) was for a coconut-upgraded version. And since we all love peanut butter oat coconut everything ‘round these parts, that’s what we’re whipping up today.

What do you think? 🙂

4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Dairy-Free, 4 Ingredient, One Bowl)


Description

4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (V, GF): a one-bowl recipe for super easy to make peanut butter cookies packed with coconut and oats! Gluten Free, Vegan, Whole Grain, Refined Sugar-Free.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, shreds or flakes

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl (large enough to add oats and coconut later), add peanut butter and maple syrup. Whisk together until well mixed.
  3. Heat in 20-second increments in the microwave until warm and fragrant, and the mixture begins to dry out (about 4-7 rounds). Whisk in between heating increments. *Stovetop instructions in Notes.
  4. Add oats and coconut to the peanut butter mixture. Stir and fold until thoroughly combined and thickened.
  5. Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, evenly spaced apart. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness.
  6. Chill in the freezer for 15-25 mins, until firm. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

– Adapted from my No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars and my No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
– Here’s the wonderful cookie scoop that I used in this recipe.
– Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. The texture will be about the same in both environments.
– *Stovetop Instructions: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add peanut butter and maple syrup. Whisk until well incorporated. Stir occasionally, heating until this mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and carefully pour over the dry mixture.

  1. Just made this as I have had to turn gluten free and was dying for a “sweet treat”, these surpassed my expectations!🥰🤩😍 Thank you for sharing!

  2. These are so good. We love them. I don’t usually use maple syrup so I substituted coconut nectar. Thinking of trying date syrup next time. Thanks!

      1. I don’t know how I forgot to let you know for so long since we have these all the time, but they’re great with date syrup as well. Another batch in the freezer right now. I didn’t have any peanut butter so I used an unsalted almond butter. So good. Thanks!

  3. I’ve been making these for a couple years now and my kids and husband and I all LOVE them. I looked up the recipe again tonight because a friend of mine just wrote saying she joined a holiday cookie exchange again and not being much of a baker never seems to be able to make anything better than just OK. I sent her here saying it’s the perfect solution. Thanks for the great recipe.

    1. Aww thank you Loretta! It’s so wonderful to know that you and your family have been enjoying the recipe so much. And it’s so thoughtful of you to share it with your friend! 😊 I hope she enjoys it as much as you have.

  4. Loved these! I made two batches: one with tahini and one with peanut butter. I did substitute honey as that was what I had on hand. All that tells me is that is a really versatile recipe!

    The tahini cookies came out really hard–I’m talking break-a-tooth hard. But a few seconds in the microwave softened them up and they had a really delightful chewy texture. The flavor also seemed to develop the longer they were in the fridge. Loved these more and more as the days went on.

    The peanut butter cookies were soft and stayed that way. The flavor didn’t change much (I mean, they didn’t need to. Super delicious!!!)

    Can’t wait to make this recipe again with other substitutions. Thank you!!!

    1. So glad to hear it, Andrea! What a funny thing to happen with the tahini ones. I gotta say, not all nut and seed butters are created equal! Lol. I’ve mostly just baked with tahini, so your result was super interesting to hear about in a no bake recipe. Hope you enjoy your other substitutions! 😉

  5. Ok so I never leave reviews online but I have to tell you that this is the best thing that ever happened to peanut butter and to my mouth. Thank you for this truly brilliant recipe. I’m sitting here looking at the last cookie of the batch! Beyond delicious. .

    1. Oh!!! Lol!!! Your comment totally made me laugh out loud, Angel. And, btw, it totally made my day! Eat that last cookie & enjoy!! It makes me incredibly happy to hear how much you loved my recipes. Truly. Happy no baking to you!

  6. I made these tonight but I used tahini instead of peanut butter. It worked great and they taste amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  7. Used tahini instead of peanut butter. Worked great and have a wonderful flavor! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
