Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups of quick oats
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt
  • ½ cup of vanilla almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup of non-dairy butter (ie Earthbalance)

Instructions
 

  • In a glass or metal bowl, add rolled oats, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt. No need to mix yet—wait until the next part is ready.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat butter, sugars, milk, and cocoa powder. Bring to a full rolling boil and set a timer for it to boil exactly 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • Immediately remove from heat and add to the oats in the glass bowl and stir. Immediately use a small serving scooper (about ½' circumference) to scoop out onto wax paper to dry. (If you don't have one, you can use a spoon to scoop it, and another to scoop it off.) Allow to sit to harden. Enjoy!

Notes

These cookies will bring back so many childhood memories.
