MAKES 1 COOKIE
2 tablespoons peanut butter, preferably natural
2 heaping tablespoons quick‑cooking or instant oats
1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips
Flaky sea salt, for garnish optional
HOW TO MAKE IT
Stir the peanut butter, oats, sugar, and vanilla together in a small bowl until completely combined. Using your fingers, shape the mixture into a 2 -inch-wide 6‑cm , -inch-thick 12‑mm disk. Press the tines of a fork into the top of the cookie. Chill on a parchment paper–lined plate in the freezer until firm, about 5 minutes.
Once the cookie is cold and hard, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 15-second bursts until stirrable. Spread half the chilled cookie with the chocolate, and sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt, if you like. The chocolate should set when it hits the cold cookie, but if it doesn’t, you can return it to the freezer for a minute or two.
