No bake cookies are my easy go-to late night snack. I don't have to turn on my oven, which is one less thing to do.They are such a quick fix for chocolate...unfortunately, I usually eat about 10 of these babies without slowing down! I just moved and I couldn’t find my cocoa powder, so I quickly search for a straight peanut butter recipe. HOLY COW! I loved these! Unlike the chocolate ones, these cookies have brown sugar. It creates such a delicious depth of flavor in them. MMM my mouth is watering right now!

Spoon out cookie sized scoops onto the waxed paper and allow to cool until set and firm. Store in an airtight container.
