These no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies are the classic ones childhood dreams are made of. They're the easiest cookie to make...and one of the most delicious.
Keyword: chocolate oatmeal, no bake cookies
½cupunsalted butter (1 stick)
¼cupunsweetened cocoa powder
⅔cupcreamy peanut butterdon't use the natural kind because it's too greasy
3cupsquick cooking oats
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the oats in a big bowl to be used in a few minutes
In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, milk, butter, cocoa powder, and salt until butter has melted. Bring to a boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and add vanilla extra and peanut butter. Stir until combined. Pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the oats and stir until combined.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop (I use this one to make them all uniform), drop cookies onto the prepared parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Refrigerate until firm.
The cookies will stay fresh in an air-tight container in the fridge for about a week!
