No Bake Cookies

Happy Friday Friends! With the weather staying steady in the 90s-100s, I thought I'd share an easy recipe that doesn't require turning on the oven. These no bake cookies are the perfect way to have some sweet, chocolatey cookies without having to lower the AC.

6 tablespoons skim milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/4  cup quick oatmeal
In a small saucepan, heat milk, sugar, and cocoa powder, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves and all the ingredients are combined.
Lower heat, add vanilla and peanut butter and stir until smooth and creamy

Take off heat and pour into a bowl with the oatmeal. Stir to combine. 
Drop teaspoon sized balls onto wax paper and refrigerate. After about 4 hours, they will set enough to be taken out and stored, but we just eat them right out of the fridge. Enjoy.
