No-Bake Cookies

These fudge-like "cookies" have very few ingredients and are almost as easy to make as they are too eat! When you're craving a sweet treat but the summer heat has you beat, just whip up a batch of these! Make sure to use quick-cook oats, otherwise the cookies won't hold their shape as well. They might not look too pretty, but the taste will knock your socks off!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 4 tablespoons (Also 1/4 cup or half a stick) salted butter

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I like creamy Skippy, but up to you!)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 cups quick-cook oats

Instructions

  1. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

  2. Combine the granulated sugar, milk, cocoa powder, and butter in a small saucepan. Whisk often over medium heat until it just starts to boil. This should take about 5-10 minutes.

  3. Once it's bubbling, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla, peanut butter, and quick-cook oats. If your peanut butter or butter is unsalted, you should throw in a pinch of salt to balance all the sweetness. 

  4. Use two large spoons to portion out cookies onto the baking sheets. Scoop one spoon full of the oat-fudge mixture, then use the other to slide it off onto the baking sheets.

  5. Wait until the cookies set up before eating, at least half an hour. If you don't like waiting (we've all been there), then you pop the baking sheets into the fridge for about ten minutes. Once they've set up, enjoy your chocolate and peanut butter no-bake cookies!

Allergies? Switch it up!

If you're allergic to gluten, you don't need to worry! Since these cookies are no-bake, they don't have flour, and therefore have no gluten.

Allergic to peanuts? Substitute for sunflower seed butter! It's almost identical in taste and texture, and it's available in most grocery stores.

If you're lactose intolerant or vegan, replace the milk with a milk substitute such as almond milk. Actually, this one goes for all my recipes that have milk!

Allergies shouldn't hold you back from delicious food. Have fun with your substitutions! And contact me here if you have any other questions!
