No Bake Cookies

No Bake Cookie RECIPE:

Mix and Boil for 1 minute:

2 cups sugar

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup milk

3 heaping tablespoons of Cocoa powder

Remove from heat and add:

1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer creamy)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups Oatmeal (uncooked)

Mix it all together.

Don’t add too much extra peanut butter because it won’t set correctly.

Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let it set.

Depending on the size of the cookies, it makes between 30-40 cookies.

I discovered a new website that analyzes recipes and tells you what the calories are! It’s so cool! Check it out here: Recipe Analysis. According to both the Recipe Analysis and a general google search, the No Bake Cookies are about 115 calories each cookie.

I have a family reunion this weekend and decided to make my favorites: the No Bake Cookies. They are the perfect crowdpleaser as well as super easy. There are very few ingredients and they are things I always have on hand. I used to bake A LOT. It was one of my hobbies in fact, and I loved doing it. When I started getting healthy, the baking hobby went bye-bye; mostly because I did not trust myself to have treats in the house, and also because I am a TASTER when I bake.


I got all the ingredients out beforehand. Which was a good idea because our kitchen and pantry is in shambles! It took me awhile to find the wax paper, for example.

I made a slight variation this time I made it. I used 2 cups of the regular oats I usually use, and 1 cup of the Scottish Oats. I think it will add a different texture to the cookies.

Dry Oats

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Follow the first part of the recipe and melt the butter.

Be sure to let the sugar dissolve completely or the cookies will be grainy.

Cocoa Powder

After the first stage, you must quickly add the peanut butter, oats and vanilla quickly and mix well before it sets.

Peanut Butter

Drop it on the wax paper:


I let the cookies set for a few hours. Enjoy!

QUESTION: Have you ever made No Bake Cookies before? Any variations out there?
