No Bake Cookies

Sometimes I feel like baking and then I remember how long the actual baking part can take and I get sad, then I stop being sad and make no bake cookies. ; )
As it turns out these cookies are also gluten free, but unfortunately not sugar free. The original recipe calls for 2 whole cups of sugar and man are they sweet. I cut it in and half which makes just right! Quick recipe if you ever get a late night cookie craving.

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 3 cups of oats

1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with wax paper.

2. In a large sauce pan heat the sugar, butter, cocoa powder and milk until the butter is completely melted.

3. Add in the peanut butter and vanilla until well combined. Mix in the oats and drop spoonfuls onto the baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm. Store in the fridge. Makes approx 16 cookies.
