Thanks for this recipe! It is a quick and smaller version of my favorite childhood recipe, No-Bake Chocolate Cookies, from Sophie Leavitt's Penny Pincher's Cookbook. We always has the ingredients for this recipe on hand. This to me is comfort food! Now I can just make 6 cookies at a time, and I will no longer have to feel guilty for eating the entire pan! Awesome!
This is an ancient recipe, probably 50 years old now: try finding the original one, so you won't have to worry about the calories, sugar or fat: with our recipe of old, it was ordinary oatmeal, real sugar, I think a stick of real butter, lots of cocoa and chunky peanut butter. Everything cooked on the stove, of course, and when you were done you had dozens of glorious fat bombs waiting to explode flavor in your mouth. We can't eat them anymore and greatly appreciate the cinammon and Splenda suggestions. The quick oats with apple cinammon flavor sounds yummy.
You can omit the cocoa if someone in your household doesn't like cocoa. In fact I think it taste better.
We didn't have any quick-cook oats on hand but did have some instant oatmeal packets - apple cinnamon flavor. So we used that and it was just great. The apple adds another interesting flavor. And it was easy enough that my 11-year-old daughter made them all by herself. We - or she - will be doing this again, I'm sure. They did fall apart a bit, as others have said, so maybe we'll add a little butter next time.
easthigh81, try adding a tablespoon or two of margerine to the sugar/milk/cocoa & cooking on stovetop. When it reaches a boil, let boil for 30-60 seconds. That will add some calorie & fat but will help make them softer/smoother & actually helps the flavor (of course, calories & fat always seem to improve the flavor!). You'll have to experiment a couple of times to get your mixture just right. Good luck!
Great and they are GLUTEN free. So easy to come together, my whole family loves them
