Last night, Tatym wanted me to make “no bake cookies”, but since we recently moved, I haven't found my recipe box yet! Then I remembered I had the recipe on my blog. But that blog post is 7 years old (aka “before Pinterest”) and not easy to find. So I decided to re-share (with a pinnable image) since more and more people are going gluten-free, and this recipe is naturally gluten-free and oh, so good!
No Bake Cookies Recipe
- 2 c. white sugar
- 3 TBsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 c. margarine
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 c. quick cooking oats
- 1/2 c. peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
In a saucepan, bring sugar, cocoa, margarine, milk and salt to a rapid boil for one minute. Add quick cooking oats, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well. Working quickly, drop by teaspoonfuls (I use a Pampered Chef scoop) onto waxed paper and let cool.
I usually make a double or triple batch because everyone loves these at my house, and they don't last long!
