Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, mix butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa powder. Whisk over medium heat until the butter is melted.
  2. Stir with a silicone spatula until the mixture starts to boil. Boil the mixture for 1 minute and then remove the saucepan from the heat.
  3. Add peanut butter and vanilla extract to the mixture. Stir with a whisk or silicone spatula to combine until the peanut butter has melted. It should be a smooth consistency.
  4. Add the oatmeal and salt to the no-bake chocolate cookie mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Line the cookie tray with a silicone baking mat. If you don't have a silicone baking mat, you can use parchment paper also.
  6. Use a cookie scoop (if you have one) to scoop gluten-free no bake cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten the cookies using a spoon to the desired thickness. They will harden to that size and shape.
  7. Let the no-bake cookies sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, or chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes until hardened.
  8. Serve the gluten-free chocolate cookies with a glass of milk or mug of hot cocoa. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container away from heat.

Notes

If desired, sprinkle the tops of the cookies with mini chocolate chips or other confections before they set.
