Sugar-Free No-Bake Cookies Recipe

When you feel like a cookie but can’t be bothered to turn the oven on, no-bake cookies offer a delicious alternative to the baked variety. They’re the perfect treat to whip up when you’re short on time and want a mostly hands-off preparation, with no oven to watch and no worries about burning.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups cup-for-cup keto sweetener
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Add the butter, milk, sweetener, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

  3. Once the mixture comes to a boil and the ingredients are thoroughly homogenized, remove from the heat.

  4. Add the oats, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt to the mixture; stir well to combine.

  5. Drop heaping teaspoons of the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Alternatively, you can roll balls of the dough or use a cookie scooper to create cookie mounds.)

  6. Place the sheet tray in the refrigerator. Let sit in the refrigerator for one hour, until firm, before enjoying.

Recipe Tips

Choosing a Keto Sweetener

  • A granulated cup-for-cup keto sweetener should be used for the best results in this recipe. Ideally, choose one that doesn’t contain dextrose and uses multiple sweetener sources for the most neutral taste possible.
  • A perfect example is All-Purpose In The Raw Optimal Sweetener Blend, which is what this recipe was developed with.

All About the Texture

  • Rolled oats will yield a chewier cookie than instant or quick cooking oats.
  • Quick-cooking oats will offer less texture, and the end product may be slightly softer.
  • Sugar-free peanut butter is available by most natural makers of peanut butter. The ingredients should say peanuts, oil, and salt only.
