Perfect No Bake Cookies

Hi, Guys! :)

I’ve been withholding a pretty amazing recipe from this blog, and I appologize. When my dad was under the weather last week, he was not eating much. Not eating much is a no no for this girl, so I decided to use my powers of temptation to get him to eat. I’ve never been much of a No Bake cookie person, but my daddy is, so I whipped up a batch!

It worked!  I made him No Bake Cookies meshing a few recipes found online and directions given to me by my Aunt. These are truly the best No Bake cookies I’ve ever had.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 TBSP Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Cocoa [if you just want PB flavored cookies, omit this]
  • 3 1/2 Cup Oats [ Bob's GF, Quakers, whatever you have.. ]
  • 3 Cups of Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Water [milk, nondairy milk, or some liquid would probably work]
  • 1/4 Cup of Butter, Margarine, or Vegan Substitute like Earth Balance

Directions:

  1. Combine the following in a pan and bring to a boil: water, sugar, cocoa[optional], and butter.
  2. Stir mixture so it does not stick, once boiling, add the peanut butter [& maybe a couple extra spoonfuls ;) ] and continue stirring until this boils again.
  3. Once boiling, turn off the stove and add the oats.
  4. Stir until the oats become coated in the peanut buttery mixture of goodness.
  5. Scoop spoonfuls onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  6. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or until you can pick the cookie up without too much of it sticking.
  7. Enjoy! :)
