IntroductionThese are not the healthiest, but they are delicious! Plus, oats can really help a lactating mom produce more milk! These are not the healthiest, but they are delicious! Plus, oats can really help a lactating mom produce more milk!
-1/2 cup of skim milk
-2 cups of sugar (substitutes will not work, because sugar is what helps this set up and stay firm)
-1 stick of butter
-3 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
-1/2 cup of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, your choice)
-3 cups Oats/Oatmeal (NOT instant!)
-1tsp vanilla extract
-2 feet wax paper
A tip: Usually, when ingredients are being added almost simultaneously, it doesn't matter what order you add them. However, it matters here. If you add the vanilla last, some cookies will have too much and be gross and others will have none. If you add the peanut butter last, you will have a harder time mixing the oats.
Also, try other flavor extracts. The vanilla helps the chocolate flavor pop and taste better. But, try mint extract for a mint chocolate cookie. But, I would use less than tsp, mint can be pretty strong! Experiment and enjoy!
In a medium saucepan mix milk, sugar, butter and cocoa. Keep on medium to medium high heat. Stir constantly. Do NOT quit stirring, this is important. Bring to a rapid or rolling boil. Stir for 1 minute while boiling. No more, no less. Then, remove from heat.
While still stirring, add the vanilla, then the peanut butter, then the oats. Once thoroughly mixed, drop by the spoonful onto wax paper. Work quickly, cookies will start to firm up as the mixture stands. This will make anywhere from 30-40 cookies, depending on the size you make. Recipe is calculated for 36 cookies.
Serving Size: Makes approx. 36 cookies
