No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best easy snack or dessert! Made with pantry staples like oats, peanut butter, and maple syrup--no eggs, milk, or butter.

Units Scale


  1. Line a baking sheet or Tupperware with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oat flour (I blend 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats in the Nutribullet until it resembles a fine flour), flax, and salt.
  3. Add peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and almond milk. Use a wooden spoon to mix until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. The batter will thicken and become the perfect texture as it sits.
  4. Using your hands, roll the dough into 12 balls and place them on the lined tray. You can flatten into a cookie shape or leave them round! Sprinkle with flaky salt.
  5. Refrigerate them for 15 minutes to firm up if desired, or enjoy at room temp. Store in the refrigerator.


GLUTEN FREE: Use certified gluten free oats.

*Peanut butter needs to be a drippy consistency (you should be able to pour it into the measuring cup). If it's hard or refrigerated, you'll need to increase the almond milk to get the consistency right.
