Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies {WIAW}

September 12, 2012 at 12:03 pm 6 comments

Hello hello! I thought I’d share the recipe that I used for the no-bake cookies I made on Sunday! This is part of my WIAW post because I don’t have many good looking food pictures to show you. Sorry ’bout that. 😦 The theme is “fall in to good habits,” and no it is not a good habit to eat cookies all the time. BUT, it is a good habit to enjoy a treat every now and then! So, stick these in your freezer and grab one on occassion! Hope you enjoy!


1 stick butter

2 cups sugar

2 tbs cocoa powder

pinch of salt

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup peanut butter

3 cups old fashioned oats

Combine first 4 ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil. Turn heat to low and add vanilla, peanut butter, and oats.Stir until combined, then plop onto wax paper to cool. This should make about 2 dozen delicious cookies! 🙂

    I wonder if I made these for my boyfriend, if he would eat them. He’s not a big fan of oats, but these look hard to resist.

      They’re my favorite cookie!! If he doesn’t like the chewy-ness of oats, you let the oats sit in the sauce pan a little longer and they should cook more and be less chewy.
