Recently, I found myself in the mood to whip up a batch of cookies - only to discover I didn't have any eggs. I was feeling way too lazy to make a special trip to the store so I had to get creative.
Fortunately, I didn't have to try too hard, as I found this simple recipe for no-bake cookies. No eggs. No bake. No fuss. I like it ;)
No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe from The Comfort Kitchen by Katie Lee
1 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 1/2 - 3 cups rolled oats
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, cocoa powder, milk and vanilla. Heat until sugar has dissolved, then add the peanut butter. Remove from heat and stir in the oats. The mixture should be thick.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto the parchment. Let the cookies sit for about an hour or until firmed up, then enjoy with a glass of milk!
Tell me: What is your favorite no-fuss treat?
