A perennial favorite of kids of all ages and so easy even kids can make No Bake Cookies. Today’s recipe is shared by TL Reeves, author of the upcoming new release FIGHTING FOR BRITTNEY.
• 1/2 cup butter
• 2 cups white sugar
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1/4 cup cocoa
• 3 cups quick cooking oats
• 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Bring butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa to a boil for one minute. To make sure cookies set up properly wait until mixture comes to a complete FULL boil and then start the timer for one minute. Remove from heat.
2. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and oats. Stir well and drop spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment paper. Let them set up and cool.
Just remember, for all their yummy goodness, these cookies are healthy too! They are! I mean…peanut butter AND oats. Making these cookies is a holiday tradition for Brittney Hart and her teen-age son. A single mom, Brittney spends most of her time traveling around the US chasing storms. A meteorologist, it’s her job but no matter what, she always spends Christmas with her son and they whip up a batch of these cookies and settle in to watch all the Christmas shows. After they chase a storm into Tarpley, Texas, there just might be someone else sharing those cookies next Christmas–Dexter “Dirt-D” Walsh, former naval officer and current Tarpley VFD firefighter. You can preorder their book now and read their exciting story come February 18!

Ooo, love me some no-bake cookies. And oats are heart healthy! This looks like the same recipe as mine, but I don’t imagine there are too many variations on no-bakes. I do have a peanut butter no bake recipe around here somewhere, if you want to cut out the chocolate. But who wants to cut out chocolate?
So excited for this book series! I hope you all sell tons. =o)
Yeah. I’m all for chocolate AND peanut butter. I ❤ TL for reminding me of this recipe. They're an awesome treat when the weather gets warmer and you don't want to heat up the house. 🙂
Just finished making a batch. Heh.
Yummers! Glad TL was an inspiration. 😉
