Can you make no-bake choco-oatmeal cookies without peanut butter for those with allergies to peanut butter.? Answered

Can you make no-bake choco-oatmeal cookies without peanut butter and have them turn out good?  My daughter is allergic to PB.


Here is a recipe I found on another website: Hope this works for ya!

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
½ cup milk
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Bring first four ingredients to a boil and cook 1 minute.
Add vanilla, oatmeal, and chocolate chips, and stir until combined.
Drop onto wax paper and cool.
Remove from wax paper and enjoy!


A great substitute for peanut butter is soy nut butter. Made from roasted soy beans, it is manufactured in a "peanut-free facility," as the jar indicates.

If it's just an allergy to peanuts, you could probably substitute some other kind of nut butter (i.e. almond or cashew) without any problem. If the allergy is to all nuts, possibly you could use soft tofu or cream cheese and have it still come out alright, but I'd definitely experiment with that one before inflicting it on anyone else.

I'd think so, but which recipe? because you may need to substitute the PB for a good result.
