I am totally in love with all of the no-bake desserts that you are seeing out there now. Don’t get me wrong…I am a girl that loves to bake. But…on those days when I want to make something and don’t really feel like messing with the whole oven thing, I am excited to come across a no-bake goodie.

I stumbled upon this recipe when I was searching around on pintrest the other day. I kept seeing the picture of these cookies. The only thing I saw was no-bake. It screamed at me—because it was in all caps. With that much emphasis on the no-bake part, I broke down and gave them a looksie. Boy am I glad that I did. These are—again—super easy to make and taste super yummy. It seems like I am saying that about everything lately. What can I say?? I am on a yummy streak!

Sugar, butter, cocoa powder and a little milk were heated until it started to boil. Then in went the peanut butter and the oats. I stirred in the peanut butter until it was melted and all incorporated and then added the oats. And now you have yourself a cookie.

I used my small cookie scoop to plop them on the wax paper lined cookie sheet. I could barely wait for them to cool before I had to have a bite. Yum. They were chocolaty and peanut buttery without being too much of either one. The oats gave them a great crunch. I loved them and will find any reason to make these again. Hubs was totally into these and the folks at work seemed to dig them too. I am thinking that these will be on the upcoming tailgating menu! Enjoy!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oaties  (recipe adapted from  onemoremoore.com)

1/2 C Butter
2 C Sugar
1/2 C  whole Milk
4 Tbsp Cocoa
1/2 C Peanut Butter (I used Planter’s creamy)
3- 3 1/2 C Quick cooking Oats (I used a mix of both kinds)
2 tsp. Vanilla

Add the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, and boil for 1 minute. Stir in the next 3 ingredients and drop onto wax paper. (The vanilla will bubble and spit when you add it in. I added the pb and stirred until it was melted and then added the oats.) Let cool until set.
