No Bake Peanut butter Chocolate Oat Cookies

What you need: 

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

What you do: 

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.
Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made these without the peanut butter (my mom's deathly allergic to nuts), and they were a little too chocolatey. I bet they'd have been just right with the peanut butter included or with a bit less cocoa/sugar.

Isn't the rule for raw food that it not go above 115F?  If there's boiling involved, then I don't think this would count as raw food.

So would this be considered raw food?

I make this with some shreaded coconut in it. Ah, YUM!

I did these with slow cook (chopped them up a little) oats and left out the peanut butter/nuts and used brown sugar (HAIN, vegan)  Halved the recipe and used only 1 cup of the brown sugar.  When I added the oats I left it on the heat while I was adding and stirred for 2 minutes to help cook the fuller oats.  After about 30 mins of cooling on parchment paper I put them in the fridge.  I woke up and they were all gone but one...  They are awesome, like Oat Haystacks.

These turned out amazing!  Everyone who ate them (I'm the only one that is vegetarian) loved them!  They took about a day to set, though.  I'm not sure if it helped or not, but I set it between two pieces of waxed paper after a few hours.

Thanks for the recipe!!

I used this recipe last night. It was perfect! They turned out great and are already gone. Thanks!

would this work with something like pea-nut butter or soy-nut butter? I'm allergic to peanuts, but I remember these from when I was a younger and not allergic, and they were sooo good back then!

Mine never became "cookie" like.  ??? They stayed wet and gooey...but my kids ate them all anyway. Did I do something wrong?

These are excellent. I think the recipe is right on. Though, I did make a slight change- I used chocolate soymilk and raw cane sugar which melted great.
