No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk (I used whole b/c that’s what I had)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • a pinch of salt (which I forgot and just remembered, but I think they still came out fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (set aside)
  • 3 cups instant oats (set aside)
  1. Combine all of the ingredients ‘cept the ‘nilla and oats in a medium-to-small saucepan. My first medium pan was too big. Bring to a boil and stir often.
  2. Let mixture boil for one minute. Remove pan from heat and let cool for one minute.
  3. Add vanilla extract and oats and stir. It should get thick. If it’s liquidy after adding oats, something went wrong.
  4. Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper and cool to room temperature.

If you want to make this a vegan recipe, you can just change milk to coconut or almond milk and use organic ingredients.
