That’s where this delicious, chocolate treat comes in. In this post, you’ll find the easiest cannabis cookie recipe, that requires zero baking, with simple step-by-step instructions and helpful tips and tricks.
- Cannabutter: If you don’t already have this made, start with my guide to making cannabutter in a crockpot or cannbutter in an Instant Pot. You can substitute cannabis coconut oil here, if desired.
- Granulated sugar: White, granulated sugar is ideal. However, if you don’t want to use cannabutter, or want a double infusion, you can use cannabis sugar here.
- Milk: any type of milk will do. Whether you want to use cannabis milk, traditional dairy milk, or plant-milk substitutes – they all should work here.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder: make sure to use unsweetened, or this recipe may end up too sweet.
- Quick cook oats: make sure to use these and not old-fashioned oats, or your cookies may turn out hard and chewy.
- Crunchy peanut butter: crunchy or smooth, your choice, but the chunky texture helps to add to the Rocky Road experience. You can also use infused peanut butter or any type of nut or seed butter here. For a nut-free option, try hemp seed butter.
- Vanilla extract: for flavor.
- Mini-marshmallows: optional, but enhances the Rocky Road experience.

Alternate Cannabis Infusion Options
As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something. Below we will explore all of the different ways you could infuse this recipe.
Cannabis coconut oil: Whether you have an abundance of cannabis coconut oil or you are looking for a dairy-free or vegan option, you can easily swap the oil for butter in this recipe. However, I would not recommend swapping a liquid oil, like MCT oil, here.
Cannabis sugar: You can easily use cannabis sugar in this recipe. Feel free to use as a stand-alone ingredient or use it WITH cannabutter or coconut oil for double infusion.
Cannabis peanut butter: If you already have some prepared, you can use cannabis peanut butter in this recipe.
Cannabis milk: Using a cannabis-infused milk or cream will work here.
Cannabis salt: For a delicious additional topping, sprinkle a little bit of cannabis salt on top.
