These chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies make great food gifts. Be sure to print out the recipe to share with friends and family. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 30 minutes to cool
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 40 minutes approximately 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (do not use the quick oat, they won't turn out right)
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • large pinch of salt

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Lay a sheet of wax paper on your counter or use it to cover large cookie sheets. 
  2. Bring the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, then let boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the oats, peanut butter, vanilla and salt. Stir quickly!
  3. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the wax paper and let them sit about 30 minutes to harden and cool. Make sure to do this in a room temp or cooler room – if it's warmer they don't set up as well.
