Peanut Butter and Chocolate No Bake Oatmeal Cookies Recipe


 

I am starting to accumulate quite a few cookbooks these days. It seems everytime I go to an antique store or garage sale, I always find a new cookbook I just have to buy! My favorite type of cookbooks are the church or group ones where everyone submits their tried and true recipes. I found this recipe in a cookbook from Royalton, MN called Feeding the Flock from Tri-Parish Lutheran Church. I adapted it some from the original, but they turned out great! My Mom always made a recipe similar to this, but never added peanut butter. It is a good addition and gives it great flavor.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate No Bake Cookies (print recipe)

What you need:
4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons peanut butter

Directions:
Combine butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, cocoa and peanut butter in a medium sauce pan over and heat until it reaches a rolling boil. Boil for one minute and remove from heat. Combine oatmeal and chocolate mixture in a large bowl, until mixed. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper until chilled and hardened.

  2. Love these cookies but we called them unbakes growing up... I usually make them with a chocolate bar ~~ Hershey, Lindt, Fazer... etc. And I always add raisins to mine. I don't put peanut butter in any more as my husband has a sensitivity to peanut butter. I haven't made these for a long time... guess I should as I have seen them on a few different blogs lately.

  7. I am so excited to see this recipe! This is my husband's favorite cookie and they are so expensive in the stores that we don't often get them. He's gone on a father/son trip this weekend and since I have all the ingredients, he will have a very nice surprise on his return! Love your site and am now following on Google +. KK
