These cookies are a relatively affordable treat to build.
These can be made with or without peanut butter but I have found that the addition of peanut butter adds a savory dimension plus the added protein is a good boost .
In saucepan heat on low 4 Tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup of milk. Carefully heat this mixture without scorching.
When the butter is melted stir in with whisk, 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder.
When the chocolate is blended add 1 cup of sugar.
Heat this mixture without burning until it begins to boil.
Simmer for 1 minute, remove from heat add to this 1 1/2 cup of minute oats, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
Stir this mixture until it stiffens enough to make gloppy cookies when dropped onto aluminum foil.
Let cool. Consume.
