¼cupunsweetened cocoa powder
1cuppeanut butter(creamy or crunchy)
3cupsquick oats(not instant)
In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the milk, sugar and cocoa. Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat and let boil exactly 1 minute without stirring. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Stir in the oats.
Working quickly, scoop mounds onto wax paper. (I use my medium cookie scoop.) Allow to cool completely. Store, covered, at room temperature for up to 5 days.
For a heartier cookie, use half quick oats and half old fashioned oats (1 ½ cups of each). Not not use all old fashioned oats.
These cookies are great for freezing. Allow to completely cool, then place in freezer bag in single layer. Store in freezer up to 3 months. When ready to eat, allow to set at room temperature until thawed.
