Prepare Today Homemade- No-Bake Chocolate Oat Cookies
Why is it so easy to whip up a dessert? And why do I like making dessert so much more than dinner? (maybe because I am a sugar addict, but that's another post) This is a recipe that I make sometimes for my children to eat after school. It's kind of healthy with the oats in it, right? They are yummy and simple to make so they get made a lot at my house.
No Bake Chocolate Cookies
In a saucepan bring to a rapid boil:
1/2 C butter
1/4 C cocoa powder
2 C white sugar
1/2 C milk
Boil for 1 minute, stirring the entire time.
Remove pan from heat and add in:
1/8 t salt
3 C quick oats
1/2 C peanut butter
1 t vanilla
Drop by rounded teaspoon (or cookie scoop) onto waxed paper. Let dry. Store in covered container (if there are any left to store)
These aren't the healthiest snack but they are quick and taste so good.
