No-Bake Cookies

-Preparation: 10 mins

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

2 cups sugar

3 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa

1/2 cup of milk

1/2 cup of peanut butter

3 cups rolled gluten free oats (not the instant kind)

1 teaspoon of vanilla

wax paper to lay down your cookies

Directions:

Combine 2 cups of sugar, 1 stick of butter, 3 tablespoons of cocoa and 1/2 cup of milk into a pot. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. This is very important because if YOU DON’T, they will not harden. So constantly stir and bring to boil… continue to stir for 1 full minute.

After 1 min, take pot and put it on a pot holder on counter. Mix 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3 cups oats, and teaspoon of vanilla together. Stir till the peanut butter is mixed in well, and the oats are covered. Then use a spoon to scoop out spoonfuls and place on wax paper. Let sit till they harden (20ish mins)!

About Jamie Webster

Just your average blogger. Married 2 years with two wonderful children who are 6 years apart. Little about me: I’m turning 30 this year (yikes), have had 8 foot surgeries in 8 years and have spent a little over 4 years of my life in and out of a wheel chair (or scooter). And today, I am running 5ks. I attribute two major changes in my life to my healing: the power of goal setting and going gluten free.
