This week, we will be reading about friendship, so let's make some no-bake cookies at home so that we can practice sharing!

 

 

To make our chocolate cookies, you will need:

  • A stove

  • A saucepan

  • ½ cup butter or margarine

  • 2 cups sugar

  • ⅓ cups cocoa powder

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 2 cups quick oats

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Wax paper (to put the cookies on to cool)

 

 

 

If you have allergies or dietary restrictions, certain ingredients may be substituted.  

Coconut Oil may be substituted for Butter.

Sunflower Seed Butter or Biscoff spread may be substituted for peanut butter.

Milk may be dairy or non-dairy.

Oats may be quick oats or whole rolled oats. Do not use steel-cut oats.

Optional add-ins:

  • Nuts

  • Raisins

  • Coconut

 

Instructions:

  1. Combine the butter, sugar, milk, and cocoa powder together in a medium saucepan (about 3 quart) over medium heat. Whisk until the butter melts, then bring to a simmer.
  2. Allow to simmer for 1 minute without whisking.
  3. Remove from heat, then immediately stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until completely combined.
  4. Stir in the oats and salt. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes. This allows the oats to soak up some moisture.
  5. During the 5 minutes, line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  6. Using a 1-Tablespoon cookie scoop (or simply a spoon!), drop a Tablespoon of dough onto the lined baking sheets. If desired, slightly flatten down with the back of a spoon. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Let set until cool and enjoy!
