Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookie Recipe

The element in our oven went a week ago, and until then I didn’t realize much we used it for meals and sweets. I wanted  something sweet the other day, cookies in particular, they’re easy snacks when busy, grab and go. Remember, an easy snack, not particularly healthy, and boy were these good and gone fast.


Step 1:

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 milk
  • 2 cups sugar

Put in a large pot, boil on med-high for 1 minute.

Step 2:

  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter

Place in bowl.

Add the sugar mixture to the oat mixture, mixing well and quickly. It sets quickly.

Scoop spoon fulls onto was paper covered cookie sheets. Refrigerate.

I've been making these for years. We call them mudpies and I use cocoa. I'm going to have to try chocolate chips. I found out that in a pinch you can even make them in the microwave. Can you tell I LOVE these. My daughter(19) has made them so many times she doesn't even look at the recipe anymore. She also makes them sometimes without the oatmeal and gets more of a fudgy consistency.

Ooh I like the idea of being more fudge-like! I'll have to try it without the oatmeal!

I like these, but I'd take away at least 1/2 cup sugar and maybe substitute a banana
