Tasty - and Even Healthy No-Bakes!

My family enjoys no-bake cookies - and I make them from time to time because the way I make them they are a healthy and tasty way to increase fiber, protein, and flavonoids! Today I am very happy to share with you my recipe for no-bakes - especially since tomorrow is National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. You will need . . . 

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 6 cups oats
In a large microwave-safe bowl combine sugar, cocoa, milk, butter and peanut butter. Microwave for two and a half minutes. Stir and add chocolate chips then microwave for two additional minutes. Stir until smooth and add oats then mix until oats are covered. Drop by spoonful on pan/plate covered with wax paper. I keep them in my refrigerator. 

These no-bakes are tasty and since I cut the sugar from four cups to just one cup, the ingredients are mostly very healthy! Mix up a batch and enjoy!
