NO BAKE OATMEAL, PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE COOKIES

YIELD:
2 to 3 dozen cookies
PREP:
5 minutes
COOK:
10 minutes
TOTAL:
45 minutes
These classic no bake cookies can be made in minutes and are the perfect after-school treat, a must for holiday cookie trays, and the best “just because” cookie.

INGREDIENTS:

½ cup (113 grams) unsalted butter
2 cups (397 grams) granulated sugar
½ cup (120 ml) whole or 2% milk
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
½ cup (135 grams) peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups (267 grams) quick-cooking oats
DIRECTIONS:

Add the first five ingredients (through the salt) to a 4-quart saucepan.
Bring to a rapid boil and let boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat.
Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until smooth, then stir in the oats.
Using a medium cookie scoop (or 2 tablespoonfuls), drop onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
Let cool until set, about 30 minutes. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator) for up to 2 weeks.
