Best No-Bakes on the planet!

That’s right, I said it. My mom’s No-Bakes are the best. I hate even eating others because they don’t even compare to the greatness of hers :) So, as requested, here is the fabulous recipe.

2 Cups Sugar
1/4 Cup Cocoa
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
3/4 Cup Peanut Butter
3 Cups Oats (the minute kind)


First thing, line your counter top with aluminum foil. Do this now because it needs to be ready to go when the cookies are done.

Combine sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in sauce pan. Stir. Cook over medium to medium-high heat.


Once it starts to boil, set your timer for 1.5 minutes. That’s 1 minute 30 seconds. Keep stirring constantly.


Timing is everything. 1  minute 30 seconds, people.


After your minute and thirty seconds, remove from heat. Add in your vanilla, peanut butter, and oats. I usually have these measured out and ready to go. Mix them up well.


Drop by spoonful onto your aluminum foil. How many cookies does this make? Well, that depends on how big your spoonfuls are. I like bigger cookies. It makes about 20 for me with my scoops ;)


Deliciousness :)


Now, share with your friends, pin on Pinterest, and make some cookies! :)

For those worried about how healthy these are:

Cocoa is FULL of antioxidants.
Peanut Butter is excellent protein.
Oats are good for you.
