I have always been intrigued by the amount of edible cookie dough recipes on Pinterest yet had never given them a try myself. No idea why it took me so long to throw together my own recipe because DANG, these are good.
I ran this poll on instagram a while back and it was obvious that people have a seriously hard time choosing between cookie dough or actual cookies. I’m pretty sure I’m team cookie dough which is why this recipe also needed to come to life.
You can use whatever nut butter you desire, but for these peanut butter cookie dough cups I used salted peanut butter. The salted part is SUPER important. If your nut butter isn’t salted you can easily add a pinch or two and voila!
I always toss rolled oats in my nutri-ninja (We have this exact set and love it. We also have their coffee pot and are obsessed!) when I need oat flour because I don’t bake with it enough to need to purchase a whole package! You can also find gluten free oat flour which makes this easy, no-bake dessert recipe gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan!
All you will need for these oatmeal peanut butter cookie dough cups is:
- Oats (or oat flour)
- Nut butter of choice (preferably salted)
- Maple Syrup
- Coconut Oil
- Vanilla Extract
- Chocolate Chips!
These peanut butter cups take less than 15 minutes to prep. Most of the “baking” time comes from anxiously waiting for your chocolate to cool in the fridge.
Be sure to read through the instructions because step number 5 is really important to achieve the classic peanut butter cup “look”!
I simply microwaved my chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave to make the coating, but you could also slowly heat over the stove as well. (I know some of y’all aren’t fond of the microwave!)
So how do you plan on making these no-bake cookie dough cups? Peanut butter? Almond butter? Sunflower butter? DO TELL.
