I love these chocolate peanut butter oat cookies or bars. They are no bake and have the most incredible texture and unique taste. Although you don’t need an oven you do still need a stove top to prepare your mixture.
You do not have to use the muffin tins to pour your batter into like I do here. I like to use muffin tins to create nice circles. Instead though, you could simply pour globs onto parchment paper to cool or even pour into a well-greased pan and then simply cut bars after it cools.
1 stick of butter (8 tablespoons)
2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Heavily grease muffin tins (I use coconut oil) or a baking dish.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Once melted, add sugar and cocoa powder and stir until blended. Next, add the milk and the vanilla extract and stir completely. Let it reach a boil and let it bubble for a few seconds. Turn off the heat and stir in the peanut butter and oats.
Pour into your muffin tins and let it cool before popping them out. I used a butter knife and slid it between the cookie and the tin and they slid right out.
