This is a very popular recipe in my family...everyone loves these cookies.

- 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 1⁄4 lb oleo
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups quick oats
- Combine sugar, cocoa, oleo, and milk in a pan on the stove.
- Let boil for 3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients.
- Put in buttered cake pan or drop on waxed paper.
I use 1 1/2 cups oats and 1 1/2 cups coconut.Some times 1 of each and 1 cup of nuts.Works just as long as you use 3 cups.
This is a top notch recipe, similar to one I've been making for years. Only, there is a nack to cooking for the 3 minutes. You need to let this mixture come to full boil, then cook 3 minutes. If its underdone, it will be runny when cooled. If overdone, dry and too crumbley. Variation: I have replaced the cocoa with more peanut butter (1/3 cup). delicious.
Excellent! I used old-fashioned oats (3 c) and still added a little coconut.....I'm going to serve them as we watch the quarter finals of the World Cup (at 1 am!!) and I expect that they will be a big hit! Update: I started making these tonight (BF loves these for bike riding--he's a cyclist and always takes a baggie of these along so I make them a lot)---anyway, and I idn't have any oatmeal!!! So I used a whole bag of coconut and about a cup of cornflakes!!! They turned out very well, although a bit sweeter than usual bec. of the coconut.
