• 1 cup Splenda granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup light butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup light peanut butter
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats

My husband begs me to make these no bake cookies on a daily basis. They are chewy, soft and sweet. Using Splenda and light peanut butter make them relatively healthy as well. They come out to about 100 calories per cookie! I usually half the recipe, knowing that we will eat ALL of them that night. :)

I’ve experimented with this recipe several times & found that using brown sugar and regular sugar make them especially rich in flavor.


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, cocoa, milk and margarine. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla, salt, peanut butter and oats.
  2. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Allow cookies to cool for at least 1 hour.*  Store in an airtight container.
*As I side note, we get so excited for these cookies, I often stick them in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm them up because we can hardly wait!
