No Bake Oats Cookies

oats-cookies-2This no bake oats cookies take me way back.  I think this was the first recipe that I’ve made on my own.

Ben followed in the tradition.  With load shedding last Saturday, Ben stood around in the kitchen not knowing what to do with himself.  I jumped at the opportunity and quickly directed him and Alexander to start with this recipe.  Ben did almost everything on his own, including the trail of cocoa in the kitchen, the cookie dough on the floor and around his mouth.


500ml (2 c) Sugar
45ml (3 tblsp) Cocoa
60ml (1/4 c) Butter/Margarine
125ml (1/2 c) Milk
125ml (1/2 c) Peanut Butter
750ml (3 c) Rolled Oats
5ml (1 teasp) Vanilla


  1. In a saucepan, bring the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk to a boil.  Boil for 1 minute.
  2. After the peanut butter and vanilla.  Mix quickly until peanut butter melts, then add the oats and mix till well blended.
  3. Drop spoonfuls on wax paper.  Allow to set and cool completely.
