No Bake Peanut butter Chocolate Oat Cookies
1/2 cup margarine (I use Earth Balance)
2 cups sugar (white or brown)
1/2 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
1. Line cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. In a large pot, bring margarine, sugar, milk and cocoa to a boil. Stirring constantly, let boil for 1-2 minutes until mixture is completely melted. Do not over boil.
2. Take mixture off heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until completely melted. Stir in oats.
3. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and allow to cool. When cool, turn cookies over to dry the bottoms.
4. Store in an airtight plastic container in the refrigerator.
