cookiesThis is a recipe that many of you may remember from your own childhood. And now, it’s back – and it’s an easy treat for kids that will give them energy too.

No Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk (we use evaporated milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (or creamy peanut butter so cookies won’t be as “dry”)
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats (uncooked)

Combine all ingredients except peanut butter and oats in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it reaches a boil and then boil for about 2-3 minutes. Stir constantly!

Remove from heat, add peanut butter and oats. Mix thoroughly.

Simply spoon onto wax paper and allow to cool.

Enjoy with a glass of milk!
