This is an old recipe that I've had forever and don't remember where it came from...but even after all these years it's still a yummy keeper for when we get a craving for something simple and sweet. One never gets too old to love these goodies!

- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup milk

- 3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
