No Bake Breakfast Cookies

Makes 18 cookies

1/3 C butter
3 T cocoa
½ C milk
½ C sugar

½ C peanut butter
1 t vanilla

3 C oats.

In a saucepan, bring the first 4 ingredients to a rolling boil [a boil in which even when you stir, you can see the bubbles boiling energetically], stirring constantly for about 1 1/2 minutes. (If you boil too long, the cookies will be chalky, not long enough, they won’t hold together well.)

Remove from heat and add peanut butter, then vanilla. Stir until peanut butter melted.

Add oats and stir.

Drop onto wax paper. Let set if you can. Otherwise, you can always grab a spoon.
