No Bake Cookies

I had a co-worker named Emmy a few years ago. Emmy shared my love of baking. She would often bring in containers of cookies, brownies, quick breads and other treats. She brought these no bake cookies in one day.  I loved them and she gave me her recipe.  Unfortunately, Emmy moved away and there’s been an unfilled spot in my soul. I loved trying and talking through all her baking experiments.

But I still have these to make any time I need a little pick-me-up.

These are quick, easy, tasty and require no oven. And as an extra bonus, they are gluten-free. Their texture is sort indescribable. They are a little firm and chewy. Not like soft like a typical cookie.

These are ready to eat, start to finish in less than 30 minutes.

To begin place butter, sugar and milk in a large saucepan.

Place over high heat and stir until the butter is melted. Bring to a boil. Once it begins boiling, leave it alone to boil for 4 minutes.

While that boils, measure out your oats, cocoa powder and vanilla. Also place a sil-pat or piece of parchment on a baking sheet.

After 4 minutes, remove the pan from heat and quickly stir in the oats, cocoa and vanilla.

Scoop or spoon out mounds of “batter” onto the baking sheet. This scoop I used is 1/3 cup, which is HUGE. But that’s what I wanted this time. I would recommend more in the region of a couple tablespoon scoops. But whatever floats your boat.

They will be pretty loose when you scoop them out. Move quickly because it will start to set up quickly.

Let them cool for a good 15-20 minutes so they can set up.
