No bake cookies

When I was in high school I remember so vividly my brother would make up a batch of no-bake cookies, give me one and then eat the entire batch himself. I loved no bake cookies. Nathan loves them too and asked for some recently.

I immediately pulled out the recipe card and was excited because Charlie can eat oatmeal and loves chocolate. I knew they would be a hit with him too!

First step: Occupy baby

After baby is set get out everything you need:

1 cup sugar

3T cocoa

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup margarine

1/8 tsp salt

Cook on high till rolling boil, then cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat.

Here’s where I made it allergy friendly for us.

1/4 cup SUNBUTTER

1-1/4 cup oatmeal (puffed millet)

1/2 tsp vanilla

You’re suppose to mix the remaining ingredients in once you remove it from the heat. At this point I added the Sunbutter and vanilla and mixed. Then I separated the mixture in half into two bowls. One bowl I added a little over a 1/2 cup of oatmeal and the other bowl I added puffed millet.

You then drop by spoonful onto wax paper and refrigerate until firm. They turned out great. The Sunbutter does change the flavor a little bit. Next time I won’t use quite as much Sunbutter, the flavor is strong in these cookies.

Gage thought his millet version was awesome!

Didn’t get a picture of Charlie eating his but he ate two right away!
