Hate baking or are just terrible at it? Then this recipe for wholesome and probably not nutritious No Bake cookies is just the recipe for you. For me, no bake cookies take me back to my childhood days where the stress of applying for college and staying immune from senioritis was a far off mirage. I have spent years trying to recreate a recipe that matches the No Bake cookies I had when I was little and this recipe is the closest I have come up with. With only a few simple ingredients it is easy to make and takes only a few minutes. This recipe yields about three dozen cookies.

For this recipe you will need

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons or 1 stick of margarine or butter. (Personally I prefer butter because it creates a richer flavor)
  • 1/2 cup lowfat milk
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (optional)

Set out some waxed paper for when you are ready to drop the cookies onto the paper. You won’t have time to do this when you have mixed everything together, as the mix cools fast. In a large cooking pot, mix the butter or margarine, sugar,milk, baking cocoa, and vanilla. Have your oats measured out before you start cooking. Slicing the butter into small sections will help it melt faster, making your no bake cookies take even less time Stir frequently on medium heat for four minutes or until all the butter is melted. Remove from heat and add the oats. Mix thoroughly until all the oats are covered in chocolatey goodness.  If you are using old fashioned oats let the mix sit for a few minutes so that they will stick together more easily when you transfer it to the waxed paper. Drop by tablespoon onto the waxed paper. Let the cookies cool until they are hardened. Now, eat and enjoy! You can eat them alone or with friends and family, it’s up to you.
