Sometimes you feel like having a cookie and if your oven is not working then this cookie is for you. This is not my original recipe, just one I like to use. It is a one pot cookie. The key in this recipe is to make sure the mixture is kept at a rolling boil for at least one minute.

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie

Ingredients:
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
Pinch of salt
3 1/2 cups quick cooking or old fashioned Oatmeal ( not instant)

Method:
Combine all the ingredients except the oatmeal and peanut butter into a saucepan.Allow to melt and bring to a rolling boil. Let it boil for at least one minute. Then add peanut butter and mix until melted and combined. Remove from stove and add the oatmeal and mix together.
Take a piece of parchment paper and drop spoonfuls of the batter and spread to desired size cookies. Allow to cool until set. Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 18-20 cookies.

  1. I also make it sometimes just a slight difference of unsalted butter instead of peanut one….. They come out nice and delicious like yours. I like making them as they are instant with no baking involved.
