No Bake Cookies

I figure since three people have asked me for this in the last week it must be “one of the good ones”- there are MANY no bake cookie recipes out there, and I make these once or twice a month. They are easy, kid friendly, full of protein (and sugar), and FAST.

2 c. sugar
4-6 T. cocoa
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
1 c. peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. oatmeal

Bring the sugar, cocoa, milk and butter to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla and peanut butter- mix until smooth. Add oatmeal and then drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper or any greased surface. Let set about 10 minutes, and then enjoy! Store in an airtight container for a few days. (But there won’t be any left, so don’t worry about it! 🙂
