My greatest weakness
For Superman it was Kryptonite,
for me it is Chocolate and Peanut Butter.
This “snack” (term used loosely since I could just as easily eat it as a meal) combines my favorite things and even adds in oats, just to trick my brain that this is healthy.
The original title for this recipe was “Unbaked Cookies”, our family, however, has forever renamed it as:
UNBAKED JUMBIES (don’t ask)
In a pot combine:
1/2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. coco powder
1/2 c. milk
Mix well and bring to a boil
Remove from heat and add:
1/2 c peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Gradually add 3 c. oatmeal
Pour into a small rectangular pan (the smaller the pan, the thicker the bars) and let it set in the fridge. Store in the fridge.
Because I know I will inhale the entire thing, I “restrain” by only making 1/2 a batch at a time. 😉
what about your passion for tomatoes? I can still hear the clanging of the spoon against the pasta sauce jar coming from your room! 🙂
Hi found your site from The Natural Mommy’s. I make these for my family only with a couple of differences. First i use 1 cup of natural peanut butter free of salt, and sugar- they taste like Peanut butter cups. Second I drop by spoonfulls on waxed paper and eat like cookies. We call them no-bakes, my husbands family calls them fart cookies. I guess the extra fiber of the uncooked oats can cause some “musical” results.
Beckie, I also use natural pb. My oringial recipe called for spoonfuls to be dropped onto waxed paper, but I found that that was too much work! 😉 Plus, I LOVE the thick gooey texture of the bars that the “drop” versions don’t seem to have.
Preacher cookies! (do a search on that – what they are most commonly known as). Grandma always just called them Boiled Cookies 🙂
Oh.My. I will be trying these soon!
These look great! I love peanut butter and it’s too bad so many schools and child care facilities don’t allow it. So cheap and delicious. For other cheap and easy snacks, please check out this post:
