Recipe Notes

  • Do not use quick or instant oats. If you do the cookies will not turn out right.
  • Oats are naturally gluten-free. But check the package if you are unsure.
  • If it's too warm in the house the cookies will not harden up, so make sure the house is cool. 

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 cooler room – if it's warmer they don't set up as well.)
