OATMEAL COOKIES IN A JIFFY (NO-BAKE COOKIES)

OATMEAL COOKIES IN A JIFFY (NO-BAKE COOKIES)

Christmas is round the corner and its but natural for one to get into the mood of cookies and cakes, but since I don’t have a conventional oven to bake my goodies in, I have to search for other options and yet fulfill my desire of baking those perfect cookies for my little ones. I wanted to bake something nutritious and tasty at the same time. I had a big bottle of peanut butter waiting for me in the refrigerator, so I thought why not make good use of it. Since I am off eggs, here is a nutritious eggless cookie which doesn’t need baking, just blend the ingredients together, so you can involve your little ones in this project too.

Ingredients

Quick cooking oatmeal – 3 cups

Coconut or peanut butter - 1 cup

Cocoa – 1/2 cup

Sugar - 2 cups
Milk – 3/4 cup

Butter - 1/4 lb/ 450 gms/ 1 stick

Method

In a bowl mix oatmeal and/or coconut and/or peanut butter. You can use both coconut and peanut butter or one of the two ingredients. If you are using both then use half cup coconut and half cup peanut butter. Now I had the chunky version of peanut butter at home, this actually enhanced the flavor of the cookies as it gave that nutty crunch to it. Once you mix these ingredients keep it aside.

Cut the butter into pieces.

In 2-quart casserole, combine sugar and cocoa. Stir in milk, then add butter, cut into pieces. Cook on high for 3 minutes, uncovered, or until boiling. Stir, then cook 3 minutes on high, stirring every minute. Add oatmeal and coconut (or peanut butter or enough of both to measure 1 cup). Cook on high for a minute. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper to harden. If you 're in a hurry, they may need to be refrigerated to harden.

I've also made these before, but rolled them as balls and did not flatten it. It definitely tastes very good. A quick fix treat!
