In my second attempt to make my own desserts, I decided to try a no-bake cookie recipe. I started with this recipe but made a ton of changes. The result was pretty yummy. It makes about 40 cookies that are 100 calories each. Not a bad treat.
1 cup sugar
1/2 butter or vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
3/4 cup milk (I used 2% but I think any vegan milk would work fine)
4 1/2 cup oats
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ounce bittersweet chocolate
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Combine sugar, milk, and oats in a saucepan. Cook on medium-low, stirring constantly for 20 minutes
- Stir in cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate, cooking for a couple more minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla extract
- Drop spoonfulls of batter onto baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
