Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups quick oats

Instructions

  • Combine sugar, butter, cocoa and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir constantly and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, remove from heat and add the salt, vanilla and peanut butter and mix until well combined.
  • Add oats and mix until full incorporated.
  • Drop by spoonfuls or using a cookie dough scoop onto foil or waxed paper.

Notes

  • You can use old fashioned oats if you don’t have quick oats on hand, but the texture will be different.  We prefer the texture and consistency of quick oats.
