These are one of my husband's favorite cookies.
I had actually never had these cookies until one day my son and I were baking and my husband requested these.I searched Pinterest and found a recipe.
These are so easy to make!
I have made these no-bake cookies for baby blessings, family get-togethers, and holidays.
I love that I can make them in advance and they stay delicious!
Since these cookies are also gluten-free, it's nice to have them for those who won't be able to eat other desserts.
1/2 c. unsalted butter
2 c. white sugar
a little more than 1/2 c. milk
4 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 c. peanut butter
3 c. oats (I use the old fashioned, but you can use the quick ones as well)
2 tsp. vanilla
In a saucepan over medium heat bring butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa powder to a boil.
Boil for about 1 min. stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter, oats, and vanilla.
Stir it all together.
Using two spoons, drop mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Let cool until set.
(I sometimes stick them in the refrigerator if I need them to harden faster).
And that's it!
