No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups Quick-Cooking Oats
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tbs. Vanilla

Directions
 

  • In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, melt the Butter.
  • Add Peanut Butter and Vanilla, and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the Quick Oats and Salt, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Add the Brown Sugar, Cocoa Powder, and Milk, and bring the mixture to a boil, and remove from heat.
  • Pour the Peanut Butter mixture over the Oats and fold in until all the Oats are fully coated.
  • Drop cookie-scoop sized balls of the mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving 1-2 inches between each cookie.
  • Let the cookies completely cool. (They will flatten out a bit as they cool.)
