I’ve been on an oatmeal kick lately, especially for no bake recipes like these Nutella chewy oatmeal cookies I made last month. This time I made these amazing cookie butter no bake cookies and they are so yummy. They have a delicious flavor and chewy texture. Also they are gluten free if you use gluten free oats!
I love them because they are very filling to me so I store them in the freezer and grab one after dinner. I only need to eat one because they sweet, delicious and satisfying to me.
The cookie butter is the star ingredient and combined with brown sugar gives it a caramel flavor too. So if you are a fan of Biscoff or Speculoos spread you will love these easy and healthy cookies.
Recipe ingredients I used.
You only need 5 simple ingredients to make this recipe: oatmeal, almond milk, cookie butter, butter and brown sugar.
It’s best to use quick cooking oats in this recipe but if you only have whole oats, pulse them a few times in a food processor until they look like quick oats. I’ve done this a few times. If you are gluten free, make sure to buy gluten free oats.
I was trying to cut out some carbs and calories because I’m used to doing that. So I used unsweetened almond milk. You can use regular milk or any plant based milk that you want. Try cashew milk, oat milk, whole milk, coconut milk, etc.
I also use salted butter and because you are not baking these cookies you don’t have to use unsalted butter. If you use unsalted you might want to add a dash of salt to the recipe.
I found this Biscoff cookie spread at Target but you can find creamy cookie butter by different brands in bigger grocery stores. I know Trader Joe has some too. Whatever brand you have will work. Here are a few brands on Amazon. You can even make your own with this recipe!
I used Swerve brown sugar sweetener because it has no carbs or sugar. You can substitute with regular brown sugar if you don’t care about carbs or sugar. Both will work equally well but the Swerve will cut the calories about 75%.
How to make cookie butter no bake cookies.
Step 1: Get out a medium saucepan and turn the heat to medium heat. Add the butter, brown sugar and almond milk. Stir until the butter has melted and the brown sugar has dissolved.
Step 2: Turn off the heat and add the cookie butter. Stir until everything is well combined.
Step 3: Add the oatmeal to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sugar mixture over the oats and mix well. You want to make sure all the oatmeal is coated.
Step 4: Get out a baking sheet and cover with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop, make mounds of the oat mixture on the prepared baking sheet and flatten with our fingers or use a piece of wax paper and flatten them.
Step 5: Place the baking sheet in the freezer or refrigerator for a few hours to harden. When they are firm enough to you liking, take out and place in an air tight container. Please scroll down to view the printable recipe card.
I like to keep these in the freezer so they last a long time. They are still soft enough to eat right out of the freezer.
Other ways to make this no bake oatmeal cookie.
Everyone probably made that classic no-bake cookie recipe with peanut butter and oatmeal which is what this recipes is based on. It’s a pretty standard recipe. Here are few other ways to make this recipe.
- Try Nutella version of this recipe. If you love Nutella you will love these.
- Try different seed and nut butters instead of peanut butter. There are all kinds of nut butters available like almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, etc. I’ve even seen maple walnut butter and the Justin’s brand makes honey almond, honey peanut butter, cinnamon almond butter and more. You can often find these at Whole Foods or online.
- Add a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips, toasted coconut, chopped nuts etc to add even more flavor to this recipe. Unsweetened cocoa powder would give it a bit of chocolate flavor but add a bit more sweetener if you add this.
- Lastly you can add some flavor extracts if you want to change up the flavor a bit. Try a ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, caramel extract or even maple extract.

- 3 cups quick oats
- ½ cup cookie butter (I used Biscoff cookie spread)*
- ¼ cup butter
- ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ cup Swerve brown sugar sweetener (can use regular too)
- Get out a sauce pan and heat to medium heat. Add the butter, brown sugar and almond milk. Stir until the butter has melted and the brown sugar has dissolved.
- Turn off the heat and add the cookie butter. Mix well until it has conbined with the butter mixture.
- Add the oatmeal to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sugar mixture over the oats and mix well. Make sure all the oatmeal is covered with the sauce.
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop place mounds spaced evenly on the parchment paper. I like to flatten mine with my fingers or use a piece of wax paper. Place cookie sheet in the freezer or refrigerator to harden.
- Once they are to your liking you can eat them. Store in a airtight container in the refrigartor or freezer. I like to freeze them so they last longer.
* You can find cookie butter at Target and Trader Joes. It might be called Speculoos cookie butter too but it's the same thing.
Note you can substitute regular milk and regular brown sugar for the almond milk and Swerve sweetener. I would not use regular granulated sugar as the brown adds to that caramel like flavor. You can also try nut milks or other plant based milks.
Also if you want these to be gluten free, use gluten free oatmeal.
Additionally you can add mini chocolate chips or other mix-ins if you want.
