Pregnancy is so weird. It makes you not want to cook, open your fridge, or even set foot in your kitchen... so after a long hiatus I am finally back. I'm almost 13 weeks now, mostly feeling better. But today I was feeling a little bit gnarly, so I made these little friends and then ate some, and voila! I am healed.
Chocolate No Bake Cookies... the Way-Reduced Sugar Version (but still good)
These are a nice cookie to make on a hot day because you don't have to turn on your oven! :)
3 c. rolled oats
6 Tbsp. cocoa
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats and cocoa. Set aside
2. In a medium sauce pan, combine butter, sugar and milk over medium heat. When the butter is mostly melted, bring to a boil. Boil and stir for exactly 1 minute. Stir in peanut butter until dissolved.
3. Quickly stir butter mixture into oats. Stir well. Stir in vanilla. Plop little spoonfuls onto wax paper and let them cool. If it's really warm, plop them onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper, and stick them in your fridge (or freezer if you're really in a hurry).
