No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

I grew up on no bake oatmeal cookies while playing games and coding on my C64! They are really good while warm and soft and gooey. Just fill up a bowl and enjoy.

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbs cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups oatmeal quick oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Combine sugar, butter, milk, cocoa and salt in a pan big enough to later add the oatmeal.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute stirring frequently.
  • Mix in peanut butter, oatmeal, and vanilla.
  • Once mixed together pour into a 13x9 pan. As an alternative you can spool onto wax paper making each one cookie sized.
  • Cut once cooled. A pizza cutter works great for this!


Must use quick oats. Old fashioned oats won't be heated long enough.
