No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
Ingredients
  • 2cups sugar
  • 4tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2cup milk
  • 1/2cup butter
  • 3cups oats
  • 1/2cup peanut butter
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Cover two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  2. Combine the sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in a large saucepan. Stir occasionally while bringing to a boil. Boil for one minute.
  3. Add the oatmeal, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Turn off the heat.
  4. Using a spoon, drop the mixture in tablespoon-sized portions onto the wax paper-covered cookie sheets. There should be just enough room to fit all of the cookies onto two cookie sheets.
  5. Put the cookies into the refrigerator to cool. Once the cookies have cooled, you can store them in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

The cookies keep well right on the cookie sheets in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature. They’ll stay moist for 5-7 days.

I make my no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies with regular, creamy peanut butter. I recommend regular, not natural, peanut butter. Creamy or crunchy will work well.

Unless otherwise noted, I always bake with salted butter. I also always use soy milk for my recipes that call for milk. I have not tested them with any other type of milk.
