Peanut Butter Cocoa {no bake} Oatmeal Cookies

Adapted from About.com to be low sugar and use whole-food ingredients

3.5 Cups of Whole Oat Oatmeal
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Cocoa
1/2 Cup of Almond Milk
1 Cup of natural, no-sugar added Peanut Butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
a dash of salt

  1. Put all of the dry ingredients into measuring cups so each can be easily added to the pan.
  2. Melt the butter and then add milk, followed by cocoa, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a large saucepan. {Note that adding the butter and milk first makes it easier to mix in other dry ingredients.}
  3. Bring it to a boil for about a minute, while stirring so that all ingredients are mixed well and nothing burns.
  4. Add the peanut butter, vanilla and oats into the cocoa mixture, coating the oats thoroughly.
  5. While still warm, scoop about a tablespoon of the mixture out and form each into a cookie atop a wax-paper-coated cookie sheet.
  6. Let the cookies cool, set in the fridge for about 45 minutes.
