This recipe is as simple as 1, 2, 3! This is one of our most popular recipes on both Pinterest (follow us HERE!) and Instagram (check out our page HERE!). All you need to have these bites in your own freezer is:
Maple Syrup (this is an organic option)
Peanut Butter (we love this kind!)
Oat Flour (check out this gluten free one)
And any other add-ins you want! We chose mini chocolate chips (these are vegan!), but you could add sprinkles, nuts, cookie crumbles, or even peanut butter cups for a delicious twist! As easy as this recipe is, why aren’t you in the kitchen yet?

And trust us, they taste as good as they sound! No one will know that they’re made with good-for-you ingredients and they’re SO easy to throw together!
Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Break-Apart Fudge
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup oat flour
- Any extra additions we used mini chocolate chips
- Place the peanut butter in a mixing bowl and set aside. In a saucepan, heat the maple syrup on medium-high until it begins to bubble.
- Remove from heat and pour into the peanut butter. Whisk until creamy.
- Stir in the oat flour. Mix until combined.
- Let the dough chill completely, then add any toppings (If you do not let the dough chill, your add-ins could melt!).
- To form, press the chilled dough into a lined loaf pan. Carefully remove the dough (so that it keeps its shape) and flip it over (so the rounded corners face up). Using a knife, cut slits into the dough that almost reach the bottom, creating 18 pieces that are connected on the bottom. Freeze.
- Once frozen, you will be able to break off a piece every time you need a treat!
Gotta make this ASAP. I’ll have to make my own oat flour from oats. Looks amazing!
YES! The key is to blend them in a coffee grinder – this makes the finest flour!
You can use agave or another liquid sweetener!
Can I sub regular all purpose flour instead of oat?
Is the best way to store these in the freezer? Even if you are currently eating them.
It’s up to you! We love them in the freezer not only because we can break the pieces apart but they taste delicious frozen! If you like them better in the fridge and are enjoying them within a week or two then you should store them there!
I know it says fudge, but it also says cookie dough. Can you bake it?
This is just meant to be a no-bake treat, so we would not recommend baking it. Trust us, it tastes delish as is!
Wow, definitely adding this to my list of vegan recipes to make next!!!
Great!!! Let us know how it goes!
Yum!! Could I possibly substitute coconut flour for oat flour?
I made these last night for the first time! They’re almost gone. 😍😬 Sooo yummy!
What can we use as an alternative for maple syrup?
It’s not available at where I live.
Can we use jaggery?
hi there! we haven’t tried any alternatives for maple syrup, but please let us know if you do and if it works out for you! 🙂
These look like Perfect Bars but ones that I can whipe up in no time! Can’t wait to try!
Can I use a different type of flour? I have an oat allergy.
We’ve actually never tried using a different type of flour, so we can’t say for sure! But, you could try almond — let us know if it works out!
I used almond flour and it was delicious!
My best friend is vegan and we are taking a road trip. Instead of spending a bunch of money on lunch in an expensive town, we are making vegan bento boxes. This will be a perfect little treat!
I substituted peanut butter with almond butter, changes the texture but it’s great and gives a nice chew!
Would I be able to substitute honey in for the maple syrup??

Can you use almond butter and almond meal flour or coconut flour?
We’ve never tried any of these substitutions, so we can’t say for sure, but we think any of these substitutions could work (the flavor will be a bit different though)!
Would almond flour work?
We’ve never tried with almond flour, but we think that would work!
Can I use honey instead of maple syrup?
The first time I made it I did not heat the maple syrup and it came out really wel. This time I used coconut flour and heated the maple syrup. It is very crumbly and won’t hold together. Is there a chance I cooked the syrup too long ?
I love this recipe though!
Hi there! It could be a result of using coconut flour, as we have not tried out this substitution. Also, be sure you’re measuring the flour correctly (check out this post) – packing in the flour could result in a dry dough! Hope this helps you out.
Can I replace the oat flour with Red Mills Gluten Free?
Hi Brenda! Sorry, we’ve never tried this substitution. If you do try it out, let us know how it goes!
This looks amazing! I bet my guys are going to love it!
This looks great! All flours are hard to find during this pandemic, so I’ll try this with amaranth flour that I happen to have on hand. It has a slightly nutty taste and is packed with vital nutrients. Will let you know how it turns out!
Sounds great! We are excited to hear how they turn out!
Hi When do you add in the chocolate chips? After it’s chilled or before?
After the dough is completely chilled (check out instruction #4). If the chocolate chips are added when the dough is warm, they’ll melt!
Ok, thanks. I saw that, but wasn’t sure if the chocolate chips were toppings. They look really mixed in in the photos. 🙂
Do you know the calories and sugar would be in one square please?
Is instant oatmeal ok to use? I may have missed this question. Thank you
Almond flour works, the texture is just a little weird.
So glad to hear that! Thanks for the kind review, Kaylynn!
