I tried a search for no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies and found one over at Brown Eyed Baker that looked just like the ones my mom used to make. The only change I made to the recipe was to add 1 tsp of cinnamon to the mix.
For this recipe you will need:
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 cups rolled oats (Quick cooking oats are best but I used regular because I had them.)
Pour oats into a large bowl. Pour chocolate mixture in with oats and give it a good stir.
Place heaping tablespoons of batter onto wax paper like so. Place into the fridge for several hours to allow cookies to set.
Serve to your little darlings with a tall cold glass of milk.
Grab yourself a cookie too, sit down with them, and ask all about their day. Smile, laugh, and savor the moment!
