Description

My boyfriend has severe nut allergies, so he had never experienced the joys of no-bake cookies…until now! They are every bit as delicious, but won’t cause death.

Free of peanut butter and coconut shavings. Full of awesomeness.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Salted Sweet Cream Butter
  • 2 cups Granulated White Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
  • ½ cups Whole Milk
  • 3 cups Quick Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Orange Extract (optional)

Preparation

Combine butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil, and let boil for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat. Add oats and vanilla extract (add orange extract at this time too, if desired), and mix well. Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto waxed paper, or a thoroughly greased baking sheet, and allow to cool.

Should make about 2 dozen cookies.

As an alternately awesome treat, I sometimes add orange extract to make them chocolate-orange flavored. So yummy!

Store in an air-tight container, with waxed paper separating the layers. Can store in fridge or on counter, but the fridge makes them a little less gooey.

I have a daughter that is allergic to nuts. Theses are a great easy treat that I can make in very little time. I like that they have oatmeal in them to make them healthier. They are like a candy bar treat to her, when she can’t eat almost all candy bars.
