Jacob and I made Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies yesterday. We only had a few left by the time Daddy got home. I hadn’t made these in a very long time, but we only had one egg left, and I didn’t want to heat up the house by baking. They sure were yummy, but I’m back to dieting today.
Here’s the cookie recipe:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (optional)
Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in a saucepan. On medium heat, bring to a boil for one full minute.
Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter (optional), vanilla and oatmeal. Drop by the spoonful onto wax paper. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.
