Butterscotch Maple No Bake Cookies


My kids love making no bake cookies…and I love it because they’re just so simple.  The other day, I asked them what they wanted to put in ours and Kensington said syrup while Smith said butterscotch chips…so we did.  Both.  
Maple syrup plus peanut butter plus butterscotch equals one delicious cookie!
Shopping List
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup butterscotch chips
Wax paper for cooling
In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil.  Boil about a minute, then stir in peanut butter, syrup and oatmeal.  Remove from heat and fold in your chips.
Drop by the tablespoon full on to wax paper to finish cooling (and they’ll harden up).  Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
There is something so special about making cookies with your kiddos.  And the best part about these cookies…you don’t have to wait for them to come out of the oven!
XOXO

    It's so much fun to bake with little ones. I like how you let them have input on the ingredients šŸ˜‰

    I only have sugar free syrup on hand. Do you think that would be okay? Thanks!!

    Quick oats or regular?

  • Mix and Match Mama November 8, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I used regular oats but quick cooking would work fine too! And I love pure maple syrup but I'm sure whatever kind you have will taste delicious!

    Made these last night and they are amazing!! I cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups and used light syrup and they still tasted delicious, thanks for a great recipe!

    Approximately how many does this recipe make? My Aunt hosts a cookie exchange party every year and I think this might be my pick for this year.

    You should get about 2 dozen!

    I made these today for my kiddos! Do you think they would turn out right if I added fall m&ms to them?

  • Mix and Match Mama September 9, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    M&Ms would work great!

  • Mary August 25, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    Oh my word, these are so good! I just made them and reduced sugar to 1.5 cups…will reduce to 1 cup next time. Thank you for this recipe!! I made them with my daughter!

    I make something very much like this but use Rice Krispies in place of the oatmeal. I would suggest using the mini M&M’s (blue package) instead of the regular size M&M’s
