Yes. Yes. Yes. A no bake cookie. Not original or super impressive but gosh…I had to make them because they’re my faves, so I thought I’d share my little version with you. I like to omit the usual cocoa powder in the cookie and instead add a random assortment of “chips” instead (peanut butter, chocolate, white chocolate and/or butterscotch). I think it gives the cookie a little more texture and variety. In these little gems, I added in chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Dive in!
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips (or try a mixture of 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, vanilla 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.
That’s it! You could go crazy and add nuts and/or dried fruit in there as well. An easy cookie for a busy lady…that’s the kind I like best.
For a quick and simple way to mix and match this…just use butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips. Yummy!
