No Bake Cookies

These are one of my favorite types of cookies!  They are fast, easy and don't heat up the house when it's already over 100 degrees out in the middle of summer!  I'm sure many of you have made or had these before and for anyone that hasn't...well you better write down this recipe fast!

1/2 cup Butter
2 cups Sugar (i like to use half white and half brown sugar)
1/3 cup Milk
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp Cocoa
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 cups Oatmeal

*Combine butter, sugar and milk in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil for one minute (stirring constantly).  
*Remove from heat.  Add Peanut Butter, Cocoa and Vanilla.  Stir.
*Add Oatmeal and stire until well mixed.
*Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper, quickly before they set up.  
*Wait a few minute for cookies to set and then ENJOY! 
My friend Melonbelly has a healthier version recipe for these that I need to try!  I'll have to get her to post it on her blog!

CAUTION: These are VERY addicting!  I tend to just gobble them all up, I don't think my husband even realized I made these the other day because my daughter and I ate them up so fast!  Great way to lose baby weight right? ha!  -on that note, I did happen to step on the scale today and find out I dropped 5 pounds pretty instantly since I stopped drinking milk a week ago (it was bothering the baby). So now I'm below my pre-pregnancy weight...hmm....doesn't really look it though!!!  My tummy, hips and thighs are shot right now!  But I just started to gym again recently so hopefully I'll be looking like my former self again :)

Anyways, if you don't have help around your house to eat these delicious little cookies up, then plan to take some to a friend, neighboor or relative and just save a few for yourself!  ENJOY!!!

Can you believe I've never made no-bake cookies? Do you think I could substitute rice milk and margarine? I am gluten and lactose intolerant...
