Hey guys, today we are gonna bring it all the way back to 8th grade foods! Because, who doesn’t love these no bake cookies? You aren’t going to believe this but it is already getting HOT where I live.. which means it’s time to bust out all my favorite no bake recipes, and these beauties are at the top of any busy mommas list! I’m not even lying when I say that Luke (my two and a half year old) can almost make these by himself. (**With close adult supervision, I promise!) I basically just have to get the high stuff down and then stand right there to make sure he doesn’t accidentally touch the pan while he’s stirring. Man, that boy is a great stirrer.

Are you ready for the recipe that will make you the coolest mom ever with only what you have on hand and 15 minutes start to finish?? Let’s do it.

The Perfect No Bake Cookies Recipe:

Pull out all your ingredients and line two cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper.

In a medium sized sauce pan combine sugar, butter, cocoa and milk.

Do any of you feel less guilty eating these because of all the oats… or is that just me? LOL!

ALSO, if you have leftover rice, do yourself a favor and make this easy homemade rice pudding… it is freaking delicious!

    I love these no bake cookies! in my family we call them “mud puddles.” I even eat them for breakfast sometimes…hey it has got protein and oats, right?

      Jessica

      Totally! I love it :)

    I love these but prefer without the peanut butter. Is it the peanut butter that makes them harden? I’m asking because I’ve made them several times without peanut butter but only once did they harden.

    We made these tonight and they were delicious! Perfect chewy consistency! Thanks for the recipe! (And yes, they are totally healthy because of the oats).
