When the grid goes down and the zombies are walking the streets the craving for something sweet will continue onward. I just recently discovered this no bake cookie recipe that everyone else seems to have known about except me.
Over the years at parties and special occasions I actually have eaten some of these never knowing the simplicity of the recipe and preparations. All ingredients can be part of any food storage program.
Think about it – there are kids in your group and dealing with all the stresses of the situation. Imagine the smiles across their faces when you serve them cookies. What a morale booster!
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats (I use whole grain oats rather than quick oats)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Putting It All Together
- Mix sugar, milk, and cocoa powder then bring to a boil
- Boil for 1 minute and then add peanut butter and vanilla, mix thoroughly
- Add oatmeal
- Mix everything together well
- Scoop mixture out with tablespoon onto wax paper
- Allow to cool
These cookies have both carbs and protein – as well as approx. a gazillion calories.
Variations of this recipe can be adjusted to your tastes. Some people add coconut while others add Nutella or even rice krispies. Some use smooth peanut butter while others prefer crunchy.
Now go make some up and enjoy!!
