No Flour No Egg No Bake Cookies

Is there a better combination than chocolate and peanut butter? I can’t think of any. Here’s a vintage No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookie recipe that is quick, easy and tasty! I started making this No Bake Cookie since I was ten years old, so I’ve been making this for over 50 years! Yes, Lila let me boil things on the stove. She was nearby to make sure I didn’t burn myself or burn the house down.

The ingredients and process are very straightforward.

No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies ––Tools You’ll Need:

  • Saucepan
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon

No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies ––Ingredients:

  • ½ C cocoa
  • 2 C sugar
  • ½ C milk
  • ½ C butter
  • ½ C peanut butter
  • ½-1 C marshmallows (optional)
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 3 C quick cook oatmeal
  • ½ C peanuts (optional)

No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies––Directions:

Put cocoa, sugar, and milk in saucepan. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, while stirring. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla and allow to cool. Add boiled mixture to 3 Cups oatmeal in a mixing bowl. Drop by teaspoon on waxed paper.

No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies –– Cooking Notes:

• You may be tempted to boil the ingredients in the microwave. Don’t. The stove/saucepan method makes for a better cookie.

• You can make these cookies as large or as small as you like. You control the size of this snack.

• You can increase or decrease the cocoa and sugar to taste. I tend to decrease both the cocoa and sugar. Though I adore chocolate, sometimes cocoa chocolate flavor can be overpowering.

• Another way to decrease the large chocolate flavor is to add more oatmeal. This will stretch your cookie amount further. Start with an extra ¼ Cup and add more if you wish.

• If you lean toward veganism, you could substitute coconut oil in equal amounts for the butter and almond milk for milk. The coconut oil/almond milk will give the No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies an Almond Joy taste.

• You can add some mini-marshmallows when mixing in the peanut butter. They add creaminess and marshmallow flavor.

• The peanuts are entirely optional. I had some left-over trail mix that had all of the “good stuff” picked out, (the candy bits) and all that was left was peanuts and some raisins. I pulled out the raisins for another recipe and chopped up the peanuts for the No Flour/No Egg/No Bake Cookies .

• Though this recipe is vintage, quick oats are preferred. If all you have is old fashioned oats, pulse the oats in a food processor to make them smaller. If you don’t have a food processor, use a blender or a knife to cut the old-fashioned oats into smaller pieces.

• These cookies can be frozen for use at a later date.
