I got this recipe from a high school friend. These take only 10 minutes to make and have saved me countless times when hungry boys unexpectedly descend on my house.
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- peanut butter (optional)
- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Put oatmeal, optional peanut butter, chocolate chips and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
- Combine butter, milk and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium high until boiling. Let boil for 1 minute.
- Pour hot mix into the oatmeal mix and stir well. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper and let harden before eating. Freeze to harden faster.
I actually have a question how much peanut butter did you use? The recipe does not say?? Thank you..
very good. have made these many times and followed the recipe pretty much exactly. i do use soymilk instead of regular - because that is normally what i have in the house. i also mix it all, over low heat, in a pot on the stove - that is just easier for me. these cookies are SO easy and they always turn out great. i recommend doubling the batch because these cookies go quickly.
This was easy, fast and delicious. I altered it a bit too try and make it a little healthier. I substituted regular sugar for Splenda, added ground flax and chia seeds. Super yummy!
