No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

Stevia In The Raw | Prep Time: 1 hr 20 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins | Makes 22 cookies


3 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
1/4 cup dried tart cherries, coarsely chopped
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag
1/3 cup Sugar In The Raw®
2 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup reduced fat (2%) milk
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon smooth natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, almonds, cherries and salt. Set aside.

In a large, heavy saucepan, combine the Stevia In The Raw®, the Sugar In The Raw®, cocoa, butter and milk, and bring to a boil over medium heat, 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Add the peanut butter, and vanilla, and cook, stirring, until blended. Off the heat, add the oat mixture and stir until a pliable “dough” forms.

Scooping up 1 tablespoon, roll the dough into a 1-inch ball and place on a baking sheet, spacing 22 balls 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball into a 2-inch cookie. Refrigerate until the cookies are chilled and firm, about 1 hour. Refrigerated in a tightly sealed container, these cookies keep for 3 days. Serve chilled.
