As the day went on today, I realized I was wanting some no bake cookies! I knew I had all the ingredients I would need, minus the oatmeal. But this was no problem, because I've also been wanting to get some oatmeal in attempts to make this fun recipe I found on Pinterest: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
. I went to pick up some oatmeal so I could begin bringing back childhood memories!!
This recipe is entirely easy and entirely simple to make. So, without further adieu, here is the recipe:
Bring-Back-the-Childhood-Memories No Bake Cookies
1/2 Cups Butter
2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
4 Tbsp. Cocoa
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
3 Cup Quick Cooking Oats
2 tsp. Vanilla
1. Add the first 4 ingredients(up to the cocoa) together in a saucepan until they boil.
2. Once boiling, let boil for one minute.
3. Remove from heat.
4. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla and stir until smooth.
5. Slowly stir in oatmeal flakes and mix well.
Typically, you would then put dollops of the cookie mixture onto cookie sheets and let chill. Instead, i wanted to pour it into a pan and make cookie bars. And SO I DID!
Once they cooled, I sliced them up and ate a few!!
Hope you get the opportunity to make some and fill your childhood desire!! I know I sure did! If you happen to know any alternative recipes, let me know! I'd love to try them!
Thanks for traveling along!
