If there’s one cookie that reminds me of my childhood this has got to be it! I LOVE these no bake pb coco oat meal cookies! Just how I like a recipe to be… so easy and so delicious!
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Butter (1 stick butter)
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups oatmeal (I prefer old fashioned rolled oats, not instant)
Over medium heat, mix the sugar, butter, cocoa, and milk in a medium/large saucepan. Boil for 1 minute.
Turn off the heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla. Mix quickly until peanut butter melts completely. Then add the oatmeal and mix until well blended.
Using a 2 tbsp scooper (a spoon will also be fine) drop spoonfuls onto tin foil, wax paper or parchment.
It’s going to be tough to resist eating them, but allow the cookies to set and cool completely.
Makes 3 1/2 dozen 2 tbsp cookies.
