  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder I used dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large pot, bring butter, milk, and sugar to boil. Stir while boiling 1 minute. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in remaining ingredients until combined. Immediately scoop into cookies and place on waxed paper or aluminum foil. Allow 5-10 minutes to set and cool.
  • **Its a good idea to have all the ingredients you stir into the boiled mixture pre-measured, so the process is quick and the cookie 'batter' comes together properly.
