No bake cookies make me think of home economics back in middle school. While I grew up helping decorate cookies, those no bake cookies we made in home ec were the first I ever made on my own. After tasting them and swearing I would never make that type of cookie again, I realize that as an adult, no bake cookies are actually quite useful on days where you don’t want to turn on the oven and/or spend a large amount of time baking cookies. With only 5 ingredients, these No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut & Oatmeal Cookies are full of flavor, and are great as a snack after a workout!

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened and unsulfured coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add peanut butter and maple syrup. Using a wooden spoon, mix until well incorporated. Stir occasionally, heating until mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and mix well.
  • Add the oats and coconut to the saucepan. Stir and fold until thoroughly combined.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for an hour, or until firm. Enjoy!


  • If you are using large coconut flakes versus shreds, you might need to add in more dry ingredients. I do this by adding in a little more oats, then a little more coconut, etc., until the mixture reaches the desired consistency.
  • I tried using a spatula to flatten the cookies the first time around, and this didn’t work because the cookies stuck to the spatula. This is why a fork is used in step 4.
