A holiday cookie that always reminds me of home is chocolate boiled cookies. I am not sure why these were always baked around the holidays but I sure am glad they are! These slightly healthy treats are also called No Bake Cookies since you don’t bake them, you boil them! I know slightly healthy is a stretch but these are super yummy and easy to make!
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 tbsp. cocoa
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups quick oats
This recipe can easily be gluten free! Just make sure your ingredients are labeled gluten free and you’re good to go! Unfortunately, things like sugar and oats may be processed in plants containing gluten so they aren’t fully gluten free without that label.
Put butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and milk in a saucepan, stir and bring to a boil.
Once the boiling starts, time 1 minute. Stir constantly.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter and stir until melted. Finally, stir in quick oats.
As quickly as possible, scoop cookies onto wax paper. This part I stink at so I always try and get an extra set of hands. I like these cookies thin so the trick is to scoop them when they are still hot and before they firm. Once they cool and are solid, you can eat or refrigerate. I actually love these for breakfast (ok, bad I know…) but it’s oatmeal and milk… 🙂
