1/2 C. Fat Free Skim Milk 1 C. Splenda 1 C. Granulated Sugar 1/4 C. Cocoa-(unsweetened powder) 1/2 C. Promise Margarine
1/3 C. Reduced Fat Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter 3 C. Quick Oats 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Mix together the milk, Splenda, sugar,cocoa, & Promise margarine in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, & boil at a reduced heat for 3 minutes. Stir continuously to prevent burning. Remove from heat, & add the peanut butter, vanilla, & quick oats. Mix well into the hot mixture. Then drop by teaspoon onto wax paper, & slightly flatten. Cool.
Makes approx. 48 cookies--depending on how big of a spoonful you use. Mine were approx. 1 1/2 inch across.
**Originally, I made these using all Splenda (2 Cups, but to me, it had a slight after taste. Maybe it's just me! Feel free to try the recipe using all Splenda if you want. They were ok, just not great!**
These were very easy and very good. Might try increasing the splenda/decreasing sugar next time for fewer calories, but otherwise very tasty! I used skippy natural peanut butter, though, not reduced fat. Came out great!
The original version was always my favorite cookie growing up. I always eat way too many though. I will try it like this. I always just spread mine on waxed paper and then cut into squares. Much easier than trying to spoon out before they turn hard.
Delicious! I don't believe in artificial sweeteners, so I only use the 1 c. of sugar. Still sweet enough. I don't know how you get 48, though. I've made this twice and never gotten more than 30, and that includes the 'test' bites while making them!
