Day 16 - NO BAKE Chocolate, Oat, and Peanut Butter Cookies

Confession…I have a sweet tooth.  SHOCKING for those of you that know me…knowledge for those of you that don't.  Anyway…the "tooth" struck again, and made me want to make cookies.  But THESE cookies didn't require an oven (thank GOD because it was like 80 degrees tonight…yes in October…in New Jersey).  AND…they were EASY to make - like 10 minutes at the stove…TOPS!!

NO BAKE Chocolate, Oat, and Peanut Butter Cookies
2 Cups Sugar
4 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 stick of butter
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
3 Cups Oatmeal
2 Tablespoons Flax Seed
1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

In a small pot, combine sugar, cocoa, butter, and 1/2 cup milk.  Bring to a boil, and let boil for 1 minute.  Turn the heat off, and add in the Peanut Butter, Vanilla, Oatmeal, Flax Seed, and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.  Mix well. 

On Parchment Paper (or Wax Paper) spoon out teaspoon-tablespoon-fulls of the mixture, and form into a cookie shape.  Let cool and harden, and then ENJOY!!  Note - I know that it looks less than appetizing…but trust me when I tell you…they're delicious…and addicting… 

As always, you can catch up here…and if you want to know any recipes I've made…you can go here.  Happy cooking!
