We visited a friend’s boat the other day and they had made a batch of these. I can’t tell you the last time I had them! So I dug up my old recipe and made some the next day! They taste like my teen years. And you don’t have to heat up your oven!
½ cup milk
1 stick unsalted butter
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 TBS pure vanilla extract
Large pinch kosher salt
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment.
- 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, and stir to combine.
- Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, and let sit at room temperature until cooled and hardened, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate in an airtight container.
