That Yummy No Bake Choco Oatmeal Cookies

Usual summer days are so hot and humid now. Cooking and baking with all the heating appliances add to the sweat and summer heat. So I try as much to avoid prolonged use of the oven.

Craved for something chocolatey but healthier option without the need to use the oven so I don’t make the home hotter than it usually is the past weeks of summer. So I tried this quick recipe which requires minimal heat (of course there’s still heat involved). Healthier with oatmeal as a dominant ingredient. So here it is:

Ingredients:

  • half cup butter
  • half cup milk
  • 1-1 1/2 cups sugar (depending how sweet you want it)
  • 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 1/2 cups of raw quick cooking oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla flavor
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup peanut butter

Procedure:

  1. In a pan / pot, mix butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa together and bring to a boil.
  2. Add oatmeal, vanilla flavor, and peanut butter and you may turn off heat at once while continuously mixing until well mixed.
  3. Drop spoonfulls in a wax paper or foil. Then let it cool for an hour.
  4. Share and enjoy! 🙂
