Tammi's Teeny Tiny Kitchen : No Bake Cookies

 In Uncategorized

These cookies are a crowd favorite. The name often throws people off, but they are a bundle of chocolate-ly, peanut buttery, oatmeal goodness. You can never have just one. My favorite thing about the recipe is that you can make it vegan friendly as well as gluten free! You’ll be licking your spoon at the end of ‘baking’ and your friends won’t be able to stop taking them off the platter. They are perfect when you need a quick and easy dessert or when you don’t want to turn on the oven. Although my wonderful brother took the photos while I was visiting in CA, these are easy to make–even in a teeny tiny kitchen.

set up

In a medium saucepan combine:

1 3/4 cups sugar

4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I use green and blacks)

1/2 cup milk (here’s where you can substitute rice, hemp, almond, or cashew milk and no one will know the difference)

1/2 cup butter (substitute earth balance if needed)

Cook over medium heat until it begins to boil.

Boil for 1 1/2 minutes

Allow it to boil for 1 1/2 minutes while stirring. Remove from the heat and stir in:

1/2 cup peanut butter

3 cups quick cooking oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free quick oats)

1 Tablespoon vanilla

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto foil or wax paper (see photos for my ‘two-spoon-method’). Let cool until hardened and then enjoy!

Yum!

    I have had these bad boys often and in mass quantities–they are my personal face of Tammi’s treats and I highly recommend. It is going to be 100 degrees in NYC on Friday, so leave the oven off and still get your bake on;-)

    Thanks Candice! Made the regular and vegan versions this weekend for the house in Sag Harbor and the peeps all love ’em!
