I’ve made two batches of these old-fashioned no-bake cookies the past 2 weeks. These cookies are my husband’s all-time favorite. He reminded me of that just last week when I made them at his request. I remember my mother making these for me and my sisters when we were growing up. They are quick and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. I tell my people they are healthy with the raw oats and cocoa in them…and just don’t mention the butter and sugar. Balance anyone?
- 1 and 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
- 3 cups oatmeal
2. In a large pan on the stovetop, bring the butter, milk, sugar and cocoa to a gentle boil, stirring until smooth.
