The World's Easiest Cookie Recipe

Monday, July 29, 2013

I felt inclined to start a baking marathon yesterday.  I made a birthday cake, homemade meatloaf and zucchini bread.  I then realized I had all the fixings for No Bake cookies and thought I'd whip a batch of those up too!  No Bakes make the perfect cookies when you are short on time - especially for you super busy moms with busy little ones!

Here's what you'll need:

-1 stick of butter
- 2 c of sugar
-5 tablespoons of cocoa powder
-1 teaspoon or vanilla
-1/2 cup of milk
-3 1/2 cups of oats
-1/3 c of peanut butter

Here's what you'll do:
1.  Combine butter, sugar, vanilla, cocoa and milk into a saucepan.  Heat ingredients until they boil.  Then, boil for 1 minute.

2.  Turn off the heat and add peanut butter and oats.  Mix up until oats are covered and peanut butter is melted.

3.  Scoop cookies out onto wax paper and let cool to set.

4.  Once cooled you are ready to eat!

I told you it was super easy!

One batch can make a dozen big cookies or two dozen small cookies.  Cookies usually set in about two hours.  These are my go-to treats when I'm short on time and/or too tired to whip up something spectacular.  They are always a hit and usually are gone in our house within in days.

Happy Cooking! :)


  1. I've never seen cookies prepared like this but anything with oats and peanut butter is good in my book.

  2. I love the peanut butter! Looks delicious!

  3. This is super easy and also looks delicious!

  4. No Bake Cookies are my husband's FAVORITE! I don't make them often enough, but I think he appreciates them more that way! ;)
