We’ve all had them.
They’re really no big deal, but they are quite tasty.
A simple cookie, made from simple ingredients that most of us always have available in our pantry.
Sometimes I need a little reminder that when I head to the kitchen to make something,
it doesn’t have to be a long, drawn out, adventure that requires 30 ingredients and five hours of my time.
The simple things in life are enjoyable too!
Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Oats – No Bake Cookies
*Makes about 20 cookies, depending on how small or large you like them
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
4 1/2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Butter (I use Earth Balance Soy Free)
1/2 Cup Almond Milk (I use Almond Breeze Unsweetened)
1 Cup Chunky Peanut Butter (I use organic)
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
3 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
Place a piece of waxed paper on the counter. In a medium saucepan add the sugar, cocoa, butter, and milk. While stirring, bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter and stir until combined. Add vanilla and oats and combine thoroughly.
Working quickly, drop mixture by the spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to cool.
